It sure looks like John Hawkes and I was sure it was Winter's Bone...

The other movie I remember him in was Martha Marcy May Marlene...is that right?

Coincidentally, both Amanda Peet and Alfred Molina were on Craig Ferguson this week, and on separate nights.

Let's try a musical challenge again. The attached is a 35-sec mp3 flip, zipped to accommodate forum software.

This may be too obscure, but anyone who has seen the movie will likely remember the tune.

The French chanteuse has only two IMDB credits. It's on cd but is either out of print or has always been an import.

Name any of: the song, album, singer or movie.

That would be NOTTING HILL. I recognized Emma Chambers from "The Vicar of Dibley" but didn't remember her from the film.

I had a strange theater experience with that film when it was new. I was visiting a far off place when we decided to see it. The weekend audience was READY to have fun.

(From memory) Opening lines: "Can I get you an orange juice?"

[Wild laughter from the audience]

"Oh, how about a cappuccino?"

[Hysterical laughter, people crying and convulsing in the aisles]

I've never seen anything like it.

Oddly enough, that reminds me of my son laughing hysterically when we squeeze toothpaste out of the tube. Laughter is contagious, though. If you're not careful, you'll be laughing about a cappuccino as well smile.gif

Excellent...that's it. And I agree it was much better than I suspected given the very low critic scores on RT.

That is Cillian Murphy in the screenshot. My wife and I watched this on Netflix streaming a few nights ago.

Good performances regardless of whether you like the story or not. Combination Spain/US production.

This one is easy because we have recently been discussing Take Shelter.

Singer: Guesch Patti, song & album: "Blonde".

A Peter Greenaway art film, tending toward porn, both straight and gay. Ewan McGregor has nothing to hide after this.

The calligraphic displays are lovely, although I don't quite get the obsession with body-writing. The story falls apart in the last half hour.

What the home video editions need are more subtitles. Several of the actors are not English speakers and it's hard to make out the dialogue. I imported a region B Blu-ray but it has no additional subtitles and image quality is no upgrade over the DVD.

OK...that picture helps a lot. I have a couple of ideas but would need to do some research to narrow down my choices. I have to wait another day for research, right? smile.gif
