Best Film of Every Single Country on Earth

This list (inspired by the Cinematic World Tour/ March Around the World Challege here on LB) is still a work in progress and will probably take some time to be completed. I watched currently 130 of these films, so ONLY the first page of the list is fully ranked for now. After 70 watched films, the films got more and more difficult to find and definitely also more obscure. For some countries I really have difficulties to find a good one - which is also available somewhere. Every help and recommendations are most welcome!

Purpose and "Rules"

This project's purpose is to encourage everyone to watch more foreign films and to simply get to know something about most cultures on…
