I can think of so many others (Matrix, Truman Show, A Scanner Darkly, Blade Runner, etc) but I don't wanna flood with nominations. These two are personal favorites of mine which i figured might not get nominated otherwise.

I'll second The Edge of Seventeen

I read the rules in the opening post, but I thought the precedent was no movies from the previous calendar year, to avoid overenthusing about recent releases.

On 3/29/2017 at 9:14 AM, Mr. Arkadin said:

5) No films released after December 31, 2016 can be nominated. (Like last time, if there is a heavily advocated for exception, we’re open to allowing for it.)

I believe that was the case in previous list-making, which would bump back the date a year to December 2015. I'm open to adjusting for this if there's a consensus, which would mean my nominations of Arrival, The Fits, and The Edge of Seventeen wouldn't be considered. I'm much less open to including films which haven't been released or seen and placing them at #1 (r.e., the Wendell Berry documentary).
