movies centering lives, feelings and histories of people/characters of color and non-western people/characters

disclaimer- some of these have problematic or outright awful stuff in them. i've ordered them approximately with the best & least f*ed-up at the top (that's subjective obviously). as far as i can tell, the first 50-something are great as movies and not too problematic in terms of politics, then it starts to get more sloppy.
