Name that obscure movie

#1

Post by joachimt » April 24th, 2013, 3:10 pm

We know the game "name that movie". This is a new version. Mostly the same rules apply:
The rules are simple:

1. Post a screenshot of a movie
2. Post another picture at least every 12hours if nobody guessed it yet

New game:

- If there's no new screenshot within 24hours, anyone can start with another movie
- If someone answers correctly, that someone may post the next movie to guess!
- If nobody manages to get the movie right after 3 days, anyone can start with another movie
However, there are some differences with the old game:
- The maximum amount of checks on ICM is 50, otherwise it's mainstream. ;)
- It doesn't matter whether a movie is on an official list or not (which was a rule in the other game).
- You must provide some hints with the picture. For example movie connections, info about the director or whatever you think might give people a little direction where to look.

In the movie you're looking at this image for about 45 minutes. The colours are changing because it's around sunset. Every few minutes a lot of smoke comes out.
This director made avant garde movies for several decades.

I refuse to participate in this game out fear that it would help make these films less obscure.

Fear? Don't we like obscure movies to get more attention?

I'll give someone else a chance to answer, and the other thread's film as well. Feels like I'm guessing too quickly and frequently lately.

If you guess right, I've got no problem with your participation.

It's on 1 official list, btw, so not even that obscure. I thought I start with an easy one. :whistling:

Well, in that case it's Ruhr by James Benning 2009. Definitely easy. Almost too mainstream, joachimt! :) Seriously, 19 checks!

It looks like we're playing this game just with the two of us. But I need another hint. :(

It's from 1968.
The length of this film (22 minutes) is deceiving as the director has directed a few films of considerable length.



If you are pretty sure you are right, go ahead and post the next film for others to guess as I'm about to sleep.

Only 9 checks! Shame on you guys! I love this movie...

Italian director whose final film (in the 1990s) was a soft-core erotic drama.

Huh. I thought it was Visconti (L'innocente soft core erotic drama?) but the image doesn't look wide enough for any of his later color films. :( My knowledge of Italian cinema is weak.

Not Visconti, that would have been far too easy. :P

The director scored a major success with a film based on a script by Pasolini and starring both Claudia Cardinale and Marcello M.

L' Eredità Ferramonti by Mauro Bolognini (1976)? It's at least definitely by Bolognini. I haven't seen any of his films but looking through KG for this one I found a few that look good :) Oh, and there's no iCM filmography list for Bolognin, in case anyone wants to remedy that. :whistling:

Ah, I thought he was saying this film was the final film of the director. Yeah, it looks older than the 90s.
