You mean the variety? I agree it is more interesting than expected, given that these are more or less random selections and we don't pretend they are always great films.

There are review sites all over with better screen shots; what makes our challenges so interesting? It's a mystery.

Eve: I thought I was through getting involved with men who were trouble. Falling in love on a look. I can't look at you.

Mickey: You have perfection about you. Your eyes have music. Your heart's the best part of your body. And when you move, every man, woman and child is forced to watch.

My favorite "mystery," also my favorite film from a director I had high hopes for, but not to be for me.

If I'm not mistaken, that's Elias Koteas in Exotica.

Killing Them Softly

It pays to rent movies. wink.gif The DVD/Blu-ray was released in March 2013. The scene photo is of supporting actor Ben Mendelsohn.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

From IMDB:
Quote:
Three amateurs stickup a Mob protected card game, causing the local criminal economy to collapse. Brad Pitt plays the hitman hired to track them down and restore order. Killing Them Softly also features Richard Jenkins , James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, and Vincent Curatola. Max Casella, Trevor Long, Slaine and Sam Shepard also make appearances.

New Zealand-born Australian film director Andrew Dominik wrote the screenplay is based on a 1974 novel Cogan's Trade. This is Dominik's third film, his last project was The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. It appears that the book and movie are fairly similar except for the locale change from Boston to New Orleans.

Although the critics generally liked the film it did come with a fair amount of criticism. My impression almost from the get-go is that the director was trying for a Tarantino vibe. There are lengthy chats from the characters about what's been happening in their lives unrelated to the story, stylistic camera shots and angles and spurts of brutal violence. Unfortunately some of these conversations drag on and bring the movie, if not to a halt, at least to a crawl. However for me the biggest disconnect is the director trying to tie the story to capitalism and our financial meltdown. Brad Pitt's diatribe at the end of the film and rant about what's wrong with this country is searing. 6/10.

I think it's the previous scene when he draws on Claude Raines ("This gun is pointed straight at your heart")

That would leave only you in competition! Like It's a Wonderful Life, I didn't think I could find a challenging image from Casablanca.

Yes it was so easy, you guessed the wrong scene from the right movie!! biggrin.gif

...and I refuse to quit the game because I didn't guess a scene with a guy holding a gun, even though I've seen Casablanca dozens of times! I bet I could find a myriad of screenshots with a guy holding a gun just like that.

I guess it's time for a hint. The director, sometime in the last dozen years or so, won the Oscar for directing.
