Hmm. What is it about a list of unseen films with great expectations that feels so exciting to read? It's like picking racehorses I suppose. But I actually want to watch these films too, compare and lose my head a bit. My imagination runs off with thoughts of all these film makers going to work. It makes me hungry too.

There's also the intrigue that comes with analysis.  How were the stories sold?  How did those initial funding conversations progress?  What was apparent in the premise that greenlit these projects?  What I would give to organize a round table with fellows debugging the selections.
