have seen maybe only 2 or 3 movies in the meantime that come close to cracking this top 50, but nothing that I must definitely include...
Longer list than Top 50 then? ;)
Current recommendation: Mandala (1981)

Current focus: Doubling the Canon nominees, Japan, South Korea

I have seen 1000+ Japanese films, so I could make a longer list... but 50 feels right for a list of favorites from this country, otherwise it would just be filled with "and these are also pretty good actually" movies, not "must sees that I could include in my alltime top1000".

that only shows your narrow focus, says nothing about japanese cinema or about my (hypothetical) top1000

It's not about focus, it's about taste.

Ranked. I will update it until the deadline, since I'm focussing on watching Japanese movies at the moment.
