|Countries whose films will be featured, color-coded by decade.
It probably goes without saying that I think these films have more to offer!
I'll continue to grow the list over time, even after my initial run, so I'd love it if readers chimed in with advice on films from countries I miss.
I’ve chosen films from every decade from the 1920s onward, although there is a definite bias towards the last two decades (since many countries did not have the means of production and distribution before then) and the 1970s (my admitted favorite decade).
United Kingdom: Monty Python and the Holy Grail
United States: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
