basically i want to watch a film from every country this year and expand my horizons as far as international productions go because it's very sad to look at my letterboxd stats map and see that the US and UK are very green and a few other english-speaking countries and France/Germany are a bit lighter and most of the map is grey. LB is shaming me and we're gonna fix that okay!
so here's a list i've made for myself based on what films are "highest rated" or look interesting from every country around the world. if you have a suggestion to replace whatever i have on here already for a certain country (or if i missed a country) let me know! countries in the notes and are grouped (roughly) by continent (europe, asia, south america, africa, north america, oceania).
