the ultimate pandemic watchlist

i slacked in june, i admit it. i have not been motivated to watch stuff i haven't seen before (because the pandemic is Emotionally Draining, but let’s not get into that.) at this moment (june 30, 2020) my watchlist consists of 496 films but that's too overwhelming for me to deal with. so here are my main priorities! let me know in the comments if u have any specific recs for where to start!
