Around the World Amidst Quarantine or (How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Loved the Isolation)

After Akira Kurosawa's filmography, I will start watching the 'best films' from every country. The main reason that I did this is I wanted to broaden my knowledge and especially, to support films around the world in general. In this manner, fIlms generated from this site Best Films by Countries were collected and chosen based on their availability, ranking, and recommendations on the site. However, not all of the countries (e.g. Guatemala, Guam) were listed on the directory (might be for some specific reasons) so they are excluded temporarily from this challenge while hoping to include them sooner and later.

Disclaimer: These are not the 'best films by countries', these are recommended and listed as 'best' according to opinions of the blog post and the rest.
