March Madness is no longer just for college basketball. Film lovers have been getting in on the competition by releasing movie-centric brackets of their own, and a majority of them have some of the hardest decisions you’ll probably have to make this week. Two brackets devoted to picking the best film released by A24 have gone viral. Choosing between “Lady Bird” and “Moonlight” is a damn crime that should absolutely keep you up at night.
Other brackets causing a buzz online are devoted to Tom Cruise movies and Disney/Pixar animated films. But the biggest bloodbath might just be the bracket created by FilmStruck, which pits auteurs like Kurosawa, Fellini, Varda, and Bergman against each other. How does one possibly choose between Fellini and Antonioni? It’s time for you to find out.

I saw the other @A24 March Madness Bracket and thought it was good, but A24 is so great, so many awesome films got left off, so I made a new one with 32 films, picked the films then seeded them by box office pic.twitter.com/488yK7I2P7

And just for your viewing pleasure, here’s how some of the IndieWire team has filled out these brackets over the last couple days:
