All about Westerns: A to watch list of Western genre films from around the world

Once-Upon-a-Time-in-the-West
I’ve been researching Westerns for an upcoming project Niknaz and I want to do that will be a Western-new wave Iranian cinema mashup. A Khorest Western. ( And yes, we’re still working on Bailout. But sometimes you need some space from characters in your head to visit others in other worlds).

As part of that research, I’ve been asking folks I know for lists of Westerns (and Western genre inspired films) to watch. Here’s what I’ve compiled so far–anything else I should add to the list?
