Lucia vs. DeeDee - vote!

"Two of the greatest acting performances of 1998, and it's genuinely hard to choose between them." - Amanda

 "Lisa Kudrow is PERFECTION in this. I love her." - Fernando

First and Last, 5.2

the first image and the last line of dialogue from a motion picture...

Yes, it's very peaceful.

Can you guess the movie?

the answer is after the jump.



Congratulations to Alex &  dinasztie who were the first to guess.

Yes, it's very peaceful... if not inner-peaceful. It's Woody Allen's Interiors (1978). If you've never seen this you should know that Geraldine Page and Maureen Stapleton totally earned their Oscar nominations.

This is Interiors.

Beat me to it! Yes, it's Interiors.

March 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlex

Ooh, wish I'd got this one.


March 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLev Lewis

Interiors!! Maureen Stapleton was a hoot!

(Sigh) Too slow. It's nice that Mary Beth Hurt got a BAFTA nomination for this.

March 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWayne B.

Damn! Beat me to it!
Fun fact, did you know that Mary Beth Hurt in this movie is the inspiration for Ms. Hoover on "The Simpsons?"

The Pretentious. I did not know that no. What isn't an inspriation for something on teh Simpsons. that show has been on 4-ever ;)

I totally knew this, how thrilling! And wow, Pretentious, I have to watch this again to catch Hoover-esque behaviour.

It's only in appearance, really from what I can tell. But on one of the many "Simpsons" DVDs, I distinctly remember one of the writers in the audio commentaries namedropping Mary Beth Hurt and mentioning "Interiors" in relation to Miss Hoover. They may have just been making fun of Mary Beth Hurt, though.

I love about this one that, without recognising the image or the line of dialogue, they're both so Interiors-ey that I was able to guess it anyway. Apparently Woody Allen does have a distinctive visual style, after all.

Love the serious Allen! Great movie. I haven't seen it for a long time but I clearly remember that Page and Stapleton were at their best.

I love Diane Keaton in this movie. She's such a great dramatic actress. Too bad she doesn't have a clue about it.

March 4, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercal roth

cal -- it is probably one of the weirdest disconnects ever in terms of public perception and personal perception that people don't recognize this about diane keaton.

March 4, 2011 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I love that this segment is back, even if I never know the films or I'm too slow to be the first to guess it!

Also, I love Woody Allen, is this on netflix instant play?

March 4, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMel

Mel, it is. yes.

March 4, 2011 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I love this movie. The first time I saw it last year it broke me down. Geraldine Page is genius in it. I still can't believe she didn't win an Oscar for that particular performance.But yeah -- this is what the art direction rarely is about. A character in itself...

March 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRoss

One of Woody's greatest and underrated films. I totally agree with what everyone said about Diane Keaton...she's such a brilliant dramatic actress (I particularly love her in this). Of course, Page and Stapleton were the standouts...the whole cast is brilliant.
