CHAOS REIGNS!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SURREAL ANIMAL MOMENTS IN MOVIES?

"The cow on the roof of the house in O Brother Where Art Thou-tombeet

"There is a snake in The Thin Red Line that is both surreal and real. It just suddenly appears on screen, this angry, probably poisonous snake during a battle and jolts you out of the fear of bullets into a fear of nature..........then it's back to bullets." -henry

Mystery Swag

One of my favorite things to receive during Oscar season is mystery swag - unlabelled promotional items just to keep you thinking about a film. My favorite ever was two years ago when a black envelope from "Nina Sayers" arrived. There was nothing inside it but a few feathers. This week in a last minute rush of FYC booklets and animated film paraphenalia (Wreck-It Ralph hands, Brave bow & arrow, stuffed Frankenweenie -- guess which Oscar is up for grabs?) I received this little box in a totally unlabelled package, tied with a yellow bow...

But what do I unlock with it?

Is it the key to the apartment in Amour?

I think someone is confused. Hugo was nominated last year, right?

February 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJonny

I think it's for Stoker -- someone else received it earlier and wrote about it? I don't remember for sure, though.
