A bit of a long shot, as i am not sure who or what might be famous, and it may have been an FBI agent instead of CIA, but is it Jello Biafra in the movie Tapeheads?

Yes, but since I made a stupid and embarrassing mistake... you're perfectly right.

You can all stone me now.

Correct. Chan Wook Park is a brilliant film maker. If you liked Oldboy you should check out his latest, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, which is even better than Oldboy in my opinion.

He is - and what an amazing film Oldboy is indeed, when me and my friends watched it for the first time (we've seen it a second time since) we were totally stunned by its brilliant complexity and subtle brutality, W-O-W

Yeah I know about Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, but I want to see Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance first, besides it's not in theaters here yet so I'll have to wait (definately one to watch on the big screen I'm guessing).

Anyway, here comes the new question:

5. Which movie was described by its director as a tribute to movie theatres of old, only to never mention it again after the film's success?

I've seen posters for Lady Vengeance up on the tube for a while now, but haven't seen it listed in any of the cinemas round here yet. Really want to see it, although I didn't think Mr Vengeance was half as good as Oldboy.

Sorry - I've seen that movie a few times and it jumped out at me.

Let me go look for a question....
*******************************
I have no idea what number this is but:

What word entered the lexicon as a result of the movie La Dolce Vita?

I'm thinking you are talking about paparazzi. The term is derived from one of the charcters from that movie, right? I haven't even seen the movie, by the way. I just remember reading about this somewhere. La Dolce Vita is one of those movies that I have meant to watch forever but haven't had a chance to yet.

Yes -

Quote:
The film contributed the term "paparazzi" to the language. The term derives from Marcello's photographer friend Paparazzo.

"Paparazzo" means "sparrow". Fellini called the photographer that because he thought the press photographers flutttering around celebrities looked like little hungry birds.

Correct. Took you only 22 mintes! How about coming up with a tougher question this time for us?

This one's pretty easy... I had remembered the shot to be more ambiguous than it is.

3. What movie is this from?
