These category distinctions never make any sense. Why is Nope a “Contemporary Film” and not a “Sci-Fi / Fantasy Film?”

Suppose Women Talking is a “Contemporary Film” because it nominally takes place in a contemporary setting, despite all of the costumes reflecting a time period much further back. Why would the present-day-set sci-fi thriller Don’t Worry Darling count as a “Period Film” despite being pretty much the same as Women Talking, costume-wise?
