Yeah, your clues helped a lot. There were only about 15 movies that fit. (Sorry if that's considered cheating.. I won't do it again if it is ;) )

I wouldn't be surprised if this is too easy... This one's not an official check.

Sorry if I killed this one :( It's been over 5 months, and to be honest, I completely forgot about it. If someone wants to take over, and get this game going again.

Mine was Eversmile New Jersey, if anybody was wondering. (Probably not.)

Not surprising. There's only 17 checks https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/eve ... ew+jersey/. It's not really all that great of a film. The only reason I watched it was because of Daniel Day-Lewis, when I was working on his filmography.

It's not often that you can put a close-up shot of someone like Daniel Day-Lewis in the Obscure Film game thread and stump everyone.

Not really. Just checked it out on Youtube and it doesn't seem very appealing to me.

That's probably because you don't appreciate good sci-fi. ;) For you others, make sure to go with the German version, not the English dub.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?


Well here he is skidded out onto the Zone like a planchette on a Ouija board, and what shows up inside the empty circle in his brain might string together into a message, might not, he'll just have to see.
