Not-so-shortlist of movies likely to contend for the 64 spots in Filmspotting Madness (starting Feb. 2022). Titles may – will, almost certainly – be added and current exclusion does not mean that a film doesn't have a shot at the final list.
ADDED 4/19/21: The Long Goodbye (because it was always supposed to be here and was an oversight).
ADDED 4/18/21: The Bad News Bears (good candidate for a Scrappy Upstarts Sports play-in with Breaking Away and Slap Shot); also The Rocky Horror Picture Show (which could get in a few ways, including in a Cult or Musicals play-in).
