[MovieFilter] Help me remember this movie

I can only remember one scene, where a woman is looking for a kid gone missing (maybe her own or maybe she was babysitting) and ends up finding him with a couple of pedophiles (a man and a woman) who have the missing kid and one or two others. The kid is hidden somewhere in their place and at first she is almost ready to leave, but then something strikes her as odd, and she starts noticing little details, like the nursery floor covered with plastic (to make cleanup easier). She comes back and finds the hidden kid and I think she ends up shooting the pedo couple. The movie is from the last decade or so. I can't remember any of the actors. I think the missing kid story was just one of several intertwining stories in the movie.

Can you help me identify this indie film from the last half of the 90s?

Can you help me identify this indie film from the last half of the 90s? It was shown repeatedly on either IFC or Sundance in that period. Set in LA, it seems now like a precursor to "mumblecore" films with non-actors poorly recorded with only a bit of a plot. The protagonist was male, shorter, dark-haired, and kind of aggressive in the way he would talk to people; I especially remember he would mostly repeat what other people would say, maybe two or three times, rapidly, with this angry tone.

Movie title about moving a piano

Movie title filter. I need help remembering a title. In the movie, there's a scene where a group of people moved a grand piano over difficult terrain. Possibly a combination of forest (or jungle) and mountain. It might have been South America or Africa. There might have been missionaries, or a church, in the story, but I'm not sure. There might have been a building made of glass in the jungle, but I may be confusing that with another movie. [more inside]

Name of a movie

I am looking for a name of a movie that came out I think in the 60s or late 50s. I think it took place in the jungles of South America. A group of people are trying to track across the jungle and they are being attacked by headhunters. I know at the end there is a big fight by a river and in one scene a guy is wounded in a cart and holds up a gunpowder barrel that causes an explosion and they defeat the headhunters. Anyone with info please let me know.

Help find a goofy movie in australia title...

I'm trying to figure out a movie title. The movie was set in Australia, where a guy is traveling by himself and meets a girl, falls in love, and she drugs him and when he wakes up he is married to her and living in a commune. The thing is no one ever leaves the commune, and they make dog food there. I've searched netflix, and imdb. Now hits. It had a goofy two word title. I just cannot remember it. Can someone help me?

Movies where the movie title gets a mention

So, movies where the movie's title is mentioned in the dialogue - my girlfriend was talking about these the other day; she has a superstition that it's a badge of quality. So, how many films are there like this - I would guess it's a minority? Is there a list somewhere? And is it a tick of some directors/screenwriters?

The name of a horror movie where a ghost talks to the girl through a mirror.

I saw this old horror movie about eight years ago, but I think it's from the seventies. A young couple moves into an old house and people start dying. As it turns out, the ghost either is, or looks just like, the young woman. The ghost speaks to her through the mirror. The only line of dialog I remember is when she was walking along a flight of stairs with an old man, and he says something to the effect that, "people today are so impolite." [more inside]
