... erm, that's one of the Sergio Leone movie, the one with the harmonica playing guy (Bronson), and that would be the first scene... if my shooting in the dark has been lucky.

Would that be Bob Dylan in Masked and Anonymous?

Is anyone ever planning to let Ninth or Melanie know if they're right or not? I dunno about Melanie's, but I think Ninth is right about his. That does look like a shot from the opening 10 minutes of Once Upon a Time in the West.

Yeah, Ninth was right (I thought I might make it a little harder by choosing one of the few shallow focus shots from a movie full of great deep focus spectacles, but evidently not.) Sorry I didn't reply earlier, but I just got a new job and have been doing virtually nothing except work and sleep for the last few days.

Uh, no.

I mean, perhaps you're right, but that's not the answer I was waiting for.
Now that I think about it, maybe the "folk" part is misleading people, so et's just say: a famous singer.

So...

3. In which movie is a gay man who owns a pet shop investigated for illegal animal traffic?
Yes, I know it's a weird question.

I had a feeling it wasn't right but thought I'd try.

Atom Egoyan's Exotica.

I'll be back with a question in a bit, but for now I just got my new DVD of The General.

UPDATED QUESTIONS:

1. During the final speech of this movie, Gérard Depardieu's character gradually loses his voice. In fact, the actor really was barely able to speak after numerous reshoots, and the director decided his exhausted whisper will work great in said scene. Name the film.

Hint: After giving his moving speech, the character gets killed, in a very specific-to-his-times way.

2. From these clues, name the film: A man collecting insects. A house in a pit with a woman inside. Sweat. Skin. Sex. No way out.

Hint: The film is Japanese.

3. Name this film:



4. Which really famous singer got a small part as a CIA agent in a strange (but famous) American movie?

5. What classic Western had a "Yee Haa scene" that was talked about and imitated by characters in a later film, City Slickers?

Alright. hm...

2. What poet appears in an incredibly long movie reciting all 4000+ pages of one of his poems?

3. This is probably pretty easy but, Name two multi-plotted movies in which the protagonist's fate depended on catching a train.

EDIT: I was close to putting Cyrano for 1, but didn't since I haven't seen it.
