MINDHUNTER (s2 episodes 1-2) 

"I am also a big fan of this show, because of Fincher and the detective work, even if the show skirts very close sometimes to murderer fetish..." - Jono

"I love this show. I binged 7 of the 9 episodes and could have finished but I wanted to savor it a little longer. It's such an engrossing show and beautifully filmed" -Raul

Secret Messages: Map

This was almost a first and last (this is also a movie's first shot) but instead it's a secret message.

Who marked that map up? But more importantly why is it secret? The correct answer is seven words long. 

Second clue: The camera pans left and will eventually reveal the protagonist.

My seven word response:

I don't know, and I don't know.

(Hey, it may not be correct, but it fits the word count guidelines, and it's honest.)

Optramark -- well... thanks for playing. I'm shocked this stumped people. I thought it would be obvious.

Not sure what the 7 words are...but is it in the The Italian Job?

April 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHannah

"We'll do it like the Italian Job"

Is that right?

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBenny

Benny & Hannah -- i see your line of thinking but it's not The Italian Job.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close?

"Because he needed to find more Blacks."

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew

"There's a hundred-thousand streets in this city."

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAlex C

@3rtful, interesting, I also almost guessed "Zodiac". I have never seen this movie, and I don't know why, but something about the picture made me feel very strongly it must be that. But logically it made absolutely no sense to me that the movie would start with that picture, and that it would be a secret, so I chose not to.

"Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close?

"Because he needed to find more Blacks.":

OH MY GOD! Laughing so much at this one.

LA Confidential?

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

I also think Drive - not sure though.

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterben

Alex C is right, it is Drive

The map is downtown Los Angeles, with the camera panning up to Ryan Gosling.

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCraig

Wait. It's Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

April 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

Craig, Ben and Alex -- it is DRIVE.

Alex you were right on that line of dialogue but i was thinking of ryan gosling's secretiveness for the 7 words

"you don't need to know the route"
