Can you name any songs or movies which feature palindromic structures? In terms of music, I don't mean notes or lyrics, but the sections, eg, CVCBCVC. Movie patterns would be more loose, but one could be settings, eg, starts out in a house, then a car, then a plane, etc, ends in a car, then a house. Another pattern could be the entrance/exit of characters. [more inside]

So, there's this movie. It involves a beautiful double-amputee woman and a man, and I think they're in love. I believe there's a prisoner dynamic. Pretty sure it was a mindfuck scenario, very bizarre, and possibly directed by the daughter of a big name. Any ideas?

Can you recommend movie scores that sound like the OST for Brick? Organic and evocative, particularly like the last 5-10 seconds of that trailer. Almost like music that's been made without using traditional musical instruments. Words like jangly or handmade come to mind. Thanks!

Help me remember the name of a movie, please? Here's what I (think) I remember: 90s or 00s setting, foreign-language with subtitles, set in European local, possibly Scandinavian, overcast skies, commuting to work via train. Plot revolved around a man who lost his job, but did not tell his family, he just kept going into the city every day. Fuzzy on anything else...

I'm getting a bit more into photography and I'm thinking about picking up some vintage film cameras (still and possibly movie). There is no shortage of inexpensive cameras available on eBay; however, it isn't clear to me what film formats are still available. [more inside]
Movie identification request: There's a movie that features a group of friends who grew up together and are now back together as adults. When they were kids, some of them put a cherry bomb or some other big explosive in a woman's mailbox as a prank, and while they were watching for it to go off, she came out to get the mail carrying a baby. They tried to stop her (I think) but the explosive went off, and presumably she and the baby were killed, traumatizing the boy who did it (?) for life. For years, I've thought that was "12 and Holding" but I just watched that today, and while there are some similarities, that's not what I thought it was. Can anyone identify the movie with the exploding mailbox for me? IMDB didn't seem to find anything using obvious keywords.
I am trying to find this 1980s-1990s serial killer movie about a mute girl (from what I can remember always wear black clothes) and that on one of the scenes, a chopped body of a person was shown from a trash bag or something. Anyone known the title of the movie? I watched around early 1990s.
