What are your strange list coincidences?

Not sure if this will be an interesting topic or not, but I noticed something strange on my official lists the other day: there are 6 different lists where I have seen exactly 23 films on the list. They are:

BFI's 100 Road Movies (23/100)
BFI's 100 Westerns (23/100)
TSPDT's 100 Essential Noir Films (23/100)
BFI Flare's The Best LGBTQ+ Films of All Time (23/105)
BFI's 100 Documentary Films (23/100)
Harvard's Suggested Film Viewing: Non-Fiction (23/122)

I also find the types of lists interesting. They are all surveys of a certain "genre" of movies, but except for the two documentary lists they each cover separate ground. I haven't focused on any of these lists in particular--it seems like this just happened due to trying to watch movies that are on lots of official lists in general.

Anyway, what are your weird list coincidences?

Do NOT watch The Number 23 if that freaks you out, beasterne!

:D I've already seen the movie, but it did not make a big impression. I barely remember anything about it to be honest.

In other news, my 23s lists have been greatly reduced. The only lists that I have 23 checks on now are:

IMDb Documentary Top 50: 23/50
BFI's 100 Westerns: 23/100
Roy Menarini's Il Grande Cinema Italiano: 23/250

There's also this German 23 film, not to be confused.
You see - the 23 is everywhere!

I actually barely remember the film either. Jim’s first attempt at serious acting I think.
