first four are the challenge, last one is a different film, for a bonus point. this is either far too hard, or far too easy. not sure which.

mate, I know some strange japanese movies, but even this is lost on me so far. Looks familiar to a degree, but multiple cut-out jesii?!

Now that's just odd. The top one, I mean. Is it a Scientology recruiting film?

two and three look like Spartacus gone seriously wrong.

OK, I'm thinking "far too hard" now...

clues: not japanese. english language. made in early 70s.

I know the answer but it'd probably be cheating if I took part. There is a tangential connection to John Lennon.

the bonus point must be Battle Royale, non? i'm stuffed about the main attraction though.

mat says:

No, not Battle Royale. Bonus film isn't japanese either. Nobody is getting the bonus film, no chance. I only put that on for a laugh. :)

Main challenge clues: The Chilean director of the film appears the end, playing a character who may or may not be God.

This takes me right back to my sneak peeks at my brother's creepy cult film collection when I was a kid.

Completely dumbfounded. I should stay in more and watch FilmFour.

Rich says:

Sod that, just buy this. Or, cough, selectively torrent it. Though he does deserve your money.

ah. not too hard then. excellent. Taniwha, your call then.

I can only dream about how awesome Jodorowsky's version of Dune was going to be. He had Dali on board to play the Emperor, Pink Floyd doing the music and it was Jodorowsky who originally got Giger to do the set design. Shame it got pulled, 'cos it would have been incredible. I mean, Lynch made an ace job of Dune (possibly the only person on earth other than Jodorowsky who could), but even so.

Bonus movie was Dasepo Naughty Girls, possibly the funniest, and weirdest, Korean film I've seen.

Mat, that would be a Dream Team of Lunacy and the Uncensored Unconscious. Good company for Jodorowsky.

Did you know that Terry Gilliam was lined up to do Forest Gump? Now that would have been something.
