Bonus Point!

What is this?

Why is this man in the towel closet?

Has he run out of towels?

No, there are towels situated behind him.

But can he see them?

Is his neck only capable of turning 40 degrees?

Who is the figure in the foreground?

Is it a being with a superior, flexible neck?

It is!

Is the man in the closet jealous of this stranger’s neck?

Yes, he is.

But this matters not. He has towels.

Which begs the ultimate question…

… and it is a trick question …

Necks or Towels?  Choose carefully.

I know which one I’d rather eat.

  1. I think 2 is 8 Femmes. The Gena Rowlands one is a Cassavetes. Not Gloria. Possibly Love Streams but more likely Opening Night. 10 could be Landscape in the Mist.

  2. Also, the Bonus is Spider-man…2 I think. I don’t know if we were meant to guess the film though :\

    10 is very Theo. Possibly The Beekeeper.

  3. You’re on the money with Ozon at #2.

    #3 is indeed a Cassavates film, but no one has managed to guess correctly so far…

    #10 is not Theo, although it is Greek, so there’s a clue for ya…

    The bonus point is destined to be forever out of one’s grasp. Thankfully, you helped me avoid having to stretch out the trick question with your wrong answer of Spider-man TWO. This cap is from the third film; how you could forget the pivotal scene in which Peter and Harry get ‘lost’ and locked in a towel closet, forced to rub close together to keep warm, is really beyond me.

  4. Yep, they’re both right.

    You, uh, win… celebrate how you see fit.

    The other two were ‘The Holy Mountain’ and ‘Three Monkeys’. woop.
