dubious milestone

I have officially added the 300th movie to my Netflix queue: The Sweet Hereafter, Atom Egoyan's "haunting adaptation of Russell Banks' novel" that "follows a grieving Canadian mountain community in the wake of a tragic school bus accident". It's not enough that my ridiculously long queue occasionally makes me contemplate my own mortality ("will I actually live long enough to see all these?"), but apparently I insist on filling it with movies that in all likelihood will make me die a little inside. No pain, no gain I guess.
