PopGap 2016/04 – Spring Cleaning

Every April I stop adding new movies and try to clean lingering titles out of my enormous watchlist.

This year I followed the spirit of the Movie Slot Machine and picked 12 titles at random from a pool of 60 titles culled according to the following criteria:

The top 20 movies on my Watchlist according to Letterboxd users
Twenty of the movies that have been on my Watchlist for the longest time
Twenty movies chosen randomly from my entire Watchlist

When two movies from The Apu Trilogy ended up in the final 12, I decided to treat the entire series as one entry, and moved the next runner-up onto the list.
