Around the World in 80 Films

This year I have set a goal of watching at least one film from 80 different countries. I have a tentative watchlist, but am leaving myself open to improvisation. The rules of what qualifies a film as being from a specific country are loose, but with an eye on productions set and based in that particular country. International co-productions would be slotted under the country where the films are set.

Films are added as I watch them and reviews will be logged on Letterboxd as well.
