I think we're beIng followed!

Here's one I've had no luck finding: A) in the movies, is there a name for those films they used to project behind actors in a movie car to make it look like they were actually on the road? You know the ones: the slightly out of focus view out the rear window. Maybe a chase scene with the bad guy car in pursuit... Or just plain ol' traffic... B) are any of these background films archived online? Tried Prelinger archives but no luck.

And remember: external forces are never to blame.

I've always thought King Missile's Failure was a pretty good depiction of the kind of intrusive, self-defeating thoughts that characterize depression. The recent FPP'd game Depression Quest does something similar. What are some other works that are reminiscent of the experience of having depression or another mental illness (as opposed to depicting characters with the illness?)

Suggest me some great (but not overt) combinations to read together.

Last week I read David Foster Wallace's "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" (thanks to this FPP), while in the middle of reading Moby Dick. I found them resonating together so well: the high tragedy mixed with low comedy, the elaborate descriptive asides, the playing with formatting, the casual authorial self-hatred, the obsession with morality, to say nothing of the mechanics of the ship and the sea. All this without a single over reference back to Melville. What are some other great co-reads (or movies/TV/opera/album/etc.) to get that enriching resonance? Subtle is good: think tone, theme, shape more than plot or character. If you've caught Laurence Weschler's McSweeney's series of Convergences (published in book form here), that's more what I mean. The reader/viewer makes the connections without being led by the author (So, for instance, King Lear & Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres are too overtly linked). Bonus points for something that goes well with Cloud Atlas (the book, not the movie).

Nursery rhyme movie, help me find it!

This movie is a straight-to-VHS, released pre-1990, and features live-action reenactments of nursery rhymes with occasional use of illustrations for the more animal-based rhymes (though I do remember Humpty Dumpty being portrayed in live-action). [more inside]

Quick, blush-inducing question: remember the diner scene in Silver Linings Playbook? I would like more scenes from movies/TV like that (basically, a conversation which plays out like an impromptu tango, and in which one/both parties finds themselves unexpectedly/uncomfortably/obviously aroused).

Recommendations for romantic movies

I need some suggestions for romantic movies released in the last 5-6 years. Something evocative of Love Actually or Bridget Jones' Diary would be ideal, although a British setting isn't necessary. Ensemble casts are appreciated. Romantic comedies in general are fine, but explicitly not looking for anything Judd Apatow, Adam Sandler, Steve Carell, or Seth Rogen have any involvement with. Any ideas?

English Subtitles for "Moscow I love you."

There is a film series of short films called "cities of love." The most common one is "New York, I love you." and "Paris, j t'aime" which are all over the place. However, my friend said "Moskva, ya lyublyu tebya!" (Moscow, I love you) is really good, but I can't find the English subtitles. I already have the movie, I just need the subtitles file. (Though hints on finding the movie with subtitles is also appreciated!) Any ideas where to look? This movie seems to be really obscure!

What are some movies based on longform journalism stories? So far I'm coming up with Bernie (Midnight in the Garden of East Texas in Texas Monthly), 21 (Hacking Los Vegas in Wired), and Into Thin Air (Into Thin Air in Outside) but there must be more! (I think Into the Wild was a book first and not an article, but I could be wrong.) Both names of movies and links to the articles that inspired them would be most helpful.

Help me identify southern state politician from a movie

Many years ago I recall watching a movie, where this southern state politician (supposedly based on a true character) was pulling dirty tricks during his campaign. IIRC, he for example accused his competitor of being a "humanist", along with several other carefully chosen praise words which, to his uneducated voters, sounded like insults. Does anyone know which movie I am referring to, or who this politician was?

Seeking movies to help me think about clothes.

I want to learn about the cultural significance of clothing, as well as how clothes are made, but I want my process to be fun. What do you think are the best popular Hollywood-style movies, in which the characters discuss what clothes mean to them? What about movies in which the characters are involved with the sewing or designing of clothing? Do garments play a major part in the plot of any movies? Any suggestions for movies that have helped you to think about clothes would be most appreciated.

Analysis of a line from Shakespeare's Coriolanus

You know how sometimes when you watch (or read) a Shakespeare play, you come across a something which makes you go "Holy crap, that's one of the greatest pieces of English I've ever heard, but I'm not quite sure what it means".

How much are tickets for AFI Fest?

I've never been to a film festival, but I'm really curious about AFI Fest since I'm taking steps to move to Los Angeles in the next five years and I don't really travel (so I can't go to bigger, similar festivals like TIFF or NYFF). How much do the tickets cost? Do you have to buy a different ticket for each screening? I'm curious how much money I should budget if I want to attend.
