What now, Netflix?

Netflix tries to come up with categories of movies based on my rental history and on my registered “taste preferences.” The more elaborate these are the more I like them:

Quirky Independent Comedies
Visually-striking Mind-bending Foreign Movies
Mind-bending Independent Sci-Fi & Fantasy
Cerebral foreign dramas
Emotional 20th Century Period Pieces based on a book
Dramas Featuring a Strong Female Lead
Violent Suspenseful Movies
Classic Dark Movies based on classic literature
Scary Foreign Thrillers
Cerebral Independent Gay and Lesbian
Gritty Movies based on contemporary literature
Exciting Cult Movies
Witty Biographical Movies

I don’t think “Priscilla” or “Hedwig” were all that “cerebral.” Maybe it’s keying off of “I Shot Andy Warhol” and “Happy Together.”
