20:07 Can You Name the Films?

Screenshots from the 20th minute and 7th second of a movie
I can't guarantee the same results at home. I use a VLC

#1 highly influential
La Jetee -correctly guessed by Goran in Australia

#2 is this the only closeup of braunschweiger ever in the history of the movies? I love braunschweiger.
The Straight Story (David Lynch) correctly guessed by Felix. I don't know how you did it.

#3 [no dialogue]
Silence of the Lambs -correctly guessed by Jason

Summer of Sam (Spike Lee) correctly guessed by Deborah

#5 [no dialogue]
Badlands -correctly guessed by W.R. Clark

#6 "this Thursday... it's our anniversary"
What's Eating Gilbert Grape? -Correctly guessed by Tomo in Denmark

#7 "Where is she?" (it's maybe better if they don't find her, if you ask me)
Catwoman -correctly guessed by JA. God help him.

#8 "Let the games begin" (omg, these 80s clothes)
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun -correctly guessed by Alirose

#9 "great parenting"
21 Grams (Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu) correctly guessed by Ryan

#10 rescue
Speed -correctly guessed by Lawyer Tony Fernando

#11 title card: "how long will I live?"
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari -correctly guessed by Nick

#12 "Doo dee doo dee doo! Dee doo dee doo dee"
Tom Thumb -
correctly guessed by Ant

#13 job seeker? (this is from the 60s and by a very very famous director)
Marnie (Alfred Hitchcock) -correctly guessed by Lorenzo from Italy

The last couple of installments of the beloved 20:07 series (which always had an expiration date ~sniffle) are on their way. Then the Cinematic Shame "awards", Year in Review and the 8th Annual Film Bitch Awards begin.

Nat, is #7 a film that stars an actress in a role that was previousley celebrated by a far superior actress who wore a sparkling blue dress on the dance floor?
