It was a wild guess. My first instinct was that she looked like the girl in TLTIP.

I'm inclined to call this one obscure, but that is my own mental bias at work. Any movie I have never seen before is "obscure" and any I have seen ought to be well known to everyone. It's psychology.

TRANCE

Correct! That's a picture of James McAvoy in an MRI machine.

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

Danny Boyle's film noir that premiered in March 2013 and was released in July on DVD and Blu-ray. The film opened to mixed reviews although generally positive. It failed to generate much money at the box office but the production budget was only around $20 million. I think Boyle is used to not making much money with his films and picks projects that he is interested in. In this particular case he wanted to make a movie with a female lead.

It's a psychological thriller with several twists and turns that can't be discussed without spoilers. At times as I watched this movie I thought of Inception although the story has more to do with hypnosis (trances), memories and paranoia than layered dreams. The film also stars Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson. Boyle is attempting to return nudity to films and the full frontal shot of Dawson was much appreciated.

Irreversible?

Pretty tame shots to use from that film if I'm right.

Correct! Said to be the first "body count" thriller. Influential or not, it's once only for me. That's Cameron Mitchell on the left below:

Yes, Bava was a genius when it came to making the most with color and camera tricks to compensate for a shoe-string budget and it is fun to watch his movies for that alone. But not many of his movies hold up to repeated viewings for other reasons, imo. btw, I'm sneaking in a stealth clue here for a still available title I posted on the "SPOILER in three words or less" thread in that the answer to my spoiler is an even earlier (and much better) "body count" thriller. Either too few other posters remotely consider it the classic I consider it to be or my three word spoiler is too obscure and vague to give it away...
