10. Countryman (1982)
One of the greatest Jamaican films of all time and a cult classic for anyone who knows Jamaica is Countryman. The film is dedicated to Bob Marley and the Wailers, and the soundtrack is by that giant of Jamaican music Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. Countryman, after whom the film is named, plays a Rastafarian fisherman who rescues two Americans from a crashed plane and helps them evade the authorities as some local political intrigue plays out. The film really showcases rural Jamaica and the peaceful message of Rastafariansim — especially when Countryman holds forth with his regular words of wisdom.
