Doc Corner: McQueen

"It's an excellent film, very well balanced, full of fascinating talking heads, and beautifully put together." -Edward L

"This should be the fashion documentary that makes it through to the final 5." - Peggy Sue

"I saw this in the UK last week. I was fascinated --especially the relationship with Blow and reflections on his gender politics. Would recommend." - catbaskets

First & Last: What'll I Do?

the first and last image from a motion picture (after the title sequence and before the end credits scroll)

Another clue?
The opening title sequence is underscored by the standard "What'll I Do?"
And that last image leading to the credit scroll is scored with "Ain't We Got Fun" 

Can you guess the movie?

First & Last: 'something off the port bow'

the first and last images from a motion picture. Always with the water, I tell you... years of doing this feature has taught me that more filmmakers like to begin and end on shots of water than any other single image.

first line

Cap! Something off the port bow."

[hint: that something is pretty gruesome]

last line?

[not really. a man shaves and a woman tries on clothes.]

Can you guess the movie?
