First and Last #54

First and Last: the first image after the opening credits and the last shot before the final credit scroll.


"Sweet"


Can you guess the movie? Cinematography by David Lynch

This concludes the first season of First and Last. Hope you enjoyed. It may return in altered form in October. We shall see...

Highlight for the answer if you're stumped: It's David Lynch's confounding INLAND EMPIRE (2006) for all first and last memory teasers, click the label below

DUH! "Inland Empire"! WAAAAAAy too easy...

MrW said...

Yes, Inland Empire. This closing sequence probably is the best part of the film. Not (or not only?) because the film is over after it, but mainly because of Nina Simone's 'Sinnerman' played to it.

INLAND EMPIRE. My heart leaps to see these. Which is weird, given that the film scared the crap out of me and completely, completely upset me. Is loving INLAND EMPIRE like loving someone who beats you?

Dang, I'm way too slow when it comes to these. Farewell F&L, it was fun while it lasted.

Even though I could never figure out any of them, I still enjoyed these. I think it's a really clever thing to try and do. Hopefully, there will be some more in the future.

i'm leaning towards bringing it back in some form but i need a little break.

yay or nay on a return?

Glendon said...

Yay. One day I will win. ONE DAY!

I say "yay" -- continue with them. I try and guess. It's also helped pique my interest in some unseen movies.

Wayne B. said...

I vote yay.

Not only should you bring it back, you should get a sponsor and give away fabulous prizes!
