    Happy New Year!

    I'm positive that's a Night of the Living Dead hint in the lower right corner.

    The speculation on bluray.com is that it's "They Live by Night" (1948).

    It could be a double hint, or they could be speculating wrong... :p

    Julia and Julie maybe? I'm pretty sure that is Julia Child in the center

    Seems like a safe bet as the ghost is whirling.

    The cornstalk next to the tuxedo-clad letter "R" is apparently a hint ("Stalk"-"R") for Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker.

    I would certainly prefer Ghost World over Dance so I'm hoping you are right there. Though they both do seem likely candidates for Criterion treatment

    Stalker - now few things would make me happier than that one. So, I am really really hoping that's correct

    Any of those clues for Element of Crime? I suck at puzzles.

    Everybody seemed convinced that there was a clue for Ringu last year, and it did seem pretty obvious, but that never materialized, I guess...

    Probably a stretch, but could the ? in the box ( left hand corner) be "Se7en?" Brad Pitt = "What's in the box?!"

    Speculation on that one is a Thai film called "Mysterious Object at Noon"

    I'd buy it again, especially if it were to contain the Fincher & cast commentary from the laserdisc which was never ported over to DVD or blu-ray.

    I'm going with the double hint. According to someone, it happened before (Dr. Stragelove and Exterminating Angel).

    PS. Night is definitely Criterion worthy. Just sayin'. ;)

    Ghost World, finally!

    Hoping the clock is for Scorsese's After Hours.
