That's the one situation where reading my reviews pays off. :turned:
Yeah :) Well thanks to it I immediately knew the answer from the hint alone, but nonetheless Rachel Korine is pretty visible and recognisable in the shot anyway, so it should be easily guessable.
Anyway, I'm considering a rewatch sometime in the near future, it's been too long without some good hot girls and machine guns.

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.

Yeah, Rachel Korine is quite visible, but I think this must also be a scene with Alien in the driver's seat, and it looks like they used a stunt driver there.

Btw, the first hint I considered was "Look at all this lens flare shit!", but even for a painfully obvious hint I thought this was a bit too obvious.

I may want to make a new quiz tomorrow (I'm not making any promises), the problem is that at the moment"Fake TV Programs in Fiction Films" and "Characters Reading Books (so you don't have to)" both have 4 votes. So whoever posts first can elect the definite winner between those two. And, since "Girls with Very Big Eyes" is only 1 vote short of 4 and I have a weakness for women you can pick that one, too. So, lucky chooser, please pick one of those three.

A complete WAG:


75. Double Indemnity

Uh nevermind I didn't see the hint.

So instead let's try:

75. Strangers on a Train

You do indeed like 'Margaret'! That was certainly a difficult one. Correct on 'The Lords of Salem and 'Cloud Atlas' as well.

Yep, and just re-watching Margaret recently, as you know, did help a bit. Plus, I actually tried my hand at a screenshot quiz on FG last year and used that same exact shot, hehe.
