    It’s been about 24 hours, and nobody’s guessed the movie, The City of Lost Children (La Cité des Enfants perdus).

    I couldn't be bothered to find a still for y'all to identify but I'm posting this excellent article from The Guardian (gasp! Horror! Trigger!) that has an excellent still at the beginning and which offers an engaging interpretive insight that goes far beyond the MAs in film studies for the retired: https://www.theguardian.com/film/202...niro-joe-pesci

    “Really sucks that every time you start dating a new guy you’re basically signing up to take a ‘film theory 101’ class of his making,” vented Dana Donnelly. “You know how many guys named ‘Matt’ have given me an hour-long lecture on Goodfellas?”
    oh really? Poor girl. She is so amazing and so clever and so perfect, and has to listen to all macho guys lecturing her about movies. I am so terribly sorry for her.

    Its most celebrated scenes are indeed alluring ones, [...] [Scorsese], along with cinematographer Michael Ballhaus and longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker, use every trick in their arsenal to show how a 12-year-old boy might easily slip into the care of this violent, potentially ruinous but exceedingly well-lit company. His mobsters are sleek, funny, companionable: they have to commit the odd grisly murder, but their follow-up reward is shooting the **** around a cosy kitchen table while a sweet mafia mama serves them homemade spaghetti and meatballs.[...]Hill’s life accordingly goes from a communal, naughty boys’-club fantasy to a spiralling, coke-addled, socially abandoned ****-up. [...] The dynamism of Scorsese’s film-making in Goodfellas acts as a double-edged sword: it stokes romantic macho ideals and mocks them with a single cut.
    Whatever. I have a very limited appetite for movies that purport to offer a moral take on violence while offering a degree and style of violence that some viewers find attractive. (I didn't watch past the first five minutes as I find the first murder repulsive enough.) While one poor guy gets to tell his sorry tale, there's still plenty of glamour. Anyone aspiring still to be a 'gangster' can ignore the subtle 'single cut'.

    In the meantime, back to stills.

    No idea. I’ve probably not seen this movie.

    The British Film Institute included the film in its 360 Classic Feature Films list;[8] Variety magazine described the movie as "amusing, if over-long", noting that there was "[n]o love interest to mar the comedy";[9] and the cult website TV Cream listed it at number 41 in its list of cinema's Top 100 Films.[10]

    The film critic Barry Norman included it among his 100 best films of all time, and fellow critic Derek Malcolm also included the film in his Century of Films, describing it as "perfectly representing a certain type of bumbling British humour",[11] despite being directed by a Parisian director.
    The director Marcel Varnel considered the film as among his best work,[12] and it was described in 2006, by The Times in its obituary for writer Val Guest, as "a comic masterpiece of the British cinema".[13] Jimmy Perry, in his autobiography, wrote that the trio of Captain Mainwaring, Corporal Jones and Private Pike in Dad's Army was inspired by watching Oh, Mr Porter![14]

    Was the film Oh Mr. Porter distributed outside of Britain? I’ve not heard of it before. While I was growing up in São Paulo, Brasil, I was exposed to European films (French, Italian, Spanish), Brazilian and, of course, American films, but not British ones that I can recall. Thus, the director is also unknown to me, not that I’d seek out films of the 1930s anyway. So, I missed out on Varnel’s films.

    "The Nun's Story" (dir. Zimmerman) in the first image and "The Towering Inferno" for the second one?

    From me, a famous British film I watched yesterday. Over-rated and not well acted, but here it is:
