My nominations for National Film Registry 2022 (longlist)

Every December, 25 movies are inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, who encourages the public to nominate movies they deem "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant" for the Registry. A movie must be at least 10 years old to be considered. For the fourth year now, I've been submitting 50 movies (the maximum) per year to the Registry - they clearly take the public vote seriously, as a whopping FOUR movies I nominated made it in for 2021, plus two the previous year.

The nominations close August 15, 2022 and the link to nominate movies is here: www.loc.gov/programs/national-film-preservation-board/film-registry/nominate/

Since there's always so many notable, classic, instant classic and "how is THIS not being preserved forever?" movies…
