I consider Drama to be the quintessential category and whenever there’s uncertainty of how to properly categorize a movie it will certainly have ended up under Drama. When a movie belong to more than one relevant category that will be tacked on at the end of the line in cursive. Furthermore, at the moment there is no special ordering other than that newly added titles are at the top of the lists. Original language titles or alternative titles are sometimes added directly after the first title after a comma.
