My goal is to find films I like from every country. This will be a list of films from different countries that look interesting to me that I would like to watch as part of that goal.
This is a work in progress. Please feel free to make suggestions.
I’m going to start changing how I do this. From now on, mostly when I say “by region” I will be referring to countries. I will mostly be referring only to current countries. In most cases where a country previously did not exist then I will still consider films that were made in the region currently claimed by the country to still be considered a film made in that region. For example, films made in Czechoslovakia in the region that is now a part of the Czech Republic will be considered as films made in the Czech Republic.
