Acclaimed Films from Around the World

Acclaimed Films from Around the World's icon

Created by mjf314.

Favorited 22 times, disliked 1 time, added to 12 watchlists.

For each country, I selected a maximum of 2 films, 1 film per director. Countries that no longer exist are listed by their current names. The films are listed alphabetically by country (see the IMDb list to see which films are from which country).

I did not use a formula to select the films, but my selections are mainly based on the following criteria:

1. Country-specific and region-specific critic polls.
2. Non-country-specific critic polls.
3. Various other lists.
4. Rotten Tomatoes scores and ratings.
