The object of the game is to work out what movie has been posted. The first person to guess then gets to post the next movie, and so on.

Rules of the game:

post 4 stills from a movie, or 4 images that are clues to the movie's title.

Keep track of replies to your post so you can tell when someone has guessed correctly

Let the winner know in the comments below so they can post their own!

I'm not sure if this is too hard or too easy, but we'll see. Here are some semi-obscure photos from a semi-obscure (but fantastic) film.

taniwha: I thought that that diagram would be the one that gave it away. The diagram is important to the movie.

Beth: Nope, not hard candy.

Should I wait before giving clues?

taniwha says:

Was it made by the Cohen Brothers?

11th Oct 2009, 20:19

Nope. No Cohen brothers. You were quite close with Donnie Darko though; it has a similar feel to that movie.

i'm going to try "southland tales"

12th Oct 2009, 06:50

Nope, not Southland Tales.

I don't know if this will make it easier, but I'll give a clue; There are only four actors in this movie.

12th Oct 2009, 08:05

Hmm... ok, maybe this was harder than I thought.

Clue #2: this is not an English language movie (but a US remake is currently in the pipeline).

taniwha NLI says:

Now you really have stumped me.

14th Oct 2009, 20:10

Hmmm... maybe it's not as obvious a movie as I thought. Ok:

Clue #3: In the third photo, the line represents the movement of one of the characters in the film. He interacts with himself within the portion between the two crosses.

Clue #4: Released in its native country in 2007, it had success on the film festival circuit, winning several prizes, had a limited cinema run in the UK and US in 2008 and was released on DVD in the UK early this summer.

If no one gets it in the next few days I may upload another screengrab...

Clue #5. Ok, this is a less obscure screenshot so if anyone's seen the movie they should instantly recognise it.

ok, i was browsing through sky movies when i got back from dialysis last night and i came across this spanish film. i only saw a bit of it, and i was pretty dazed, but i'm going to take a chance and say....
TIMECRIMES

24th Oct 2009, 23:07

Yes!

It is Los Cronocrímenes or Timecrimes.

It's a surprisingly good time travel movie, one of the few that seems to successfully close most of the plot holes. The US remake is due 2011. Taniwha came surprisingly close, picking a different weird-arse time travel movie...

So, take it away munchausen!

i'm crediting this one to serendipity

rab > I watched it tonight. brain splode and then not. and then, hmm i don't think he'll get away with it.

25th Oct 2009, 19:34

Beth> yeah, it was weird because you could pretty much guess what was going to happen to each version of Hector, but it was still pretty confusing. It was less confusing than Primer though, which was another weird low-budget time travel film.

I'm always impressed when a movie can stand up on its concept even when it has no budget. I watched Moon a few weeks ago, which I also thought was excellent.
