Rules of the game:

I think I've seen this too. Still two looks really familiar though still four seems to set it as sometime in the sixties.

munchausen says:

no, it isn't

taniwha, think ten years earlier

29th Oct 2009, 21:32

munchausen says:

that is to say it's set in the fifties

wow. great clues but I've no idea what the movie is...

10th Nov 2009, 16:08

taniwha says:

I know I have seen this. I might have even borrowed the film from you Munch ...

10th Nov 2009, 16:10

munchausen says:

taniwha-i had this film on vhs for ages, so its possible
you probably would have borrowed for the director. more than anything else

12th Nov 2009, 03:11

munchausen says:

time for another clue. dialogue from each frame:

frame one:
-i've heard of her. is she good?
-she tries

frame two:
-you are cherokee
-i'm on old fool. you are cherokee

frame three:
-we burned children

frame four;
-the speed of light is always 186,000 miles per second
-point 395
-it got faster?
-we got more accurate
-then don't confuse me

taniwha says:

Hmmmm ... tricky ... a 1950's director ... doing what looks like a deadpan trippy comedy but ten years before the LSD thing

munchausen says:

ah, no. the film is set in 1954, but was made in 1985.
the director's best known films were made between 1970 and 1976, but being english, tends to get passed over lightly in those "weren't the seventies a great time for film" restrospectives. and while i'm handing out clues, his trademark was a disinclination to use linear narratives

More guesses and clues!

muchausen says:

if no one gets this by the end of the week, i'll post something else

today's clue:

despite what you may think, marilyn monroe is not acharacter in this film. neither are albert einstein, joe dimaggio and senator joseph mccarthy.

28th Dec 2009, 04:59

munchausen says:

...and joseph mccarthy never looked like tony curtis

29th Dec 2009, 20:47

munchausen says:

it doesn't matter. (that's a clue, by the way)

9th Jan 2010, 22:26

taniwha says:

so, it was a Nic Roeg film then - Insignificance?

11th Jan 2010, 11:48

munchausen says:

it is, yes.
i was beginning to think i was the only one who'd seen it
