As we mentioned earlier today, MoMA has just kicked off a major retrospective of Fred Wiseman, the documentarian behind High School, Basic Training, State Legislature, and nearly three dozen more films, all direct-cinema immersions in the experiential and organizational life of unique American institutions. So, in the grand tradition of movie nerds on social media, here is the hott new Twitter meme, #unmadewisemans.

Our favorite future Fred Wiseman films thus far suggested include Off Track Betting, East 6th Street Indian Restaurant, and Jersey Shore. I myself would love to see his Summer Camp, Bodega, Sleeper Cell, Duck Hunt, and, why not, Adventureland. You?
