Some of these films haven't opened yet, at least in my neck of the woods.

It's been a heck of a year for Ryan Gosling, though.

Wow, almost as many stars as a Robert Altman movie! I recognize many of these movies, but can actually name very few of them.

Does anyone know what the clown slitting the guy's throat is from? Or the scruffy bloke screaming, looks like he's lying back with planks behind him?

I have to say I was pretty "meh" about Ides of March though.

Interesting, thank-you. Watching all those films spliced together like that does draw one's attention to the painterly side of film. Despite the supposedly visual nature of cinema, a lot of the time my experience of watching a film is driven as much by the soundtrack and the plot as it is by the visuals. Taking all those visual moments out and putting them side by side creates a very interesting effect. Among other things, it has slightly shifted my opinion of Christopher Nolan - I think his films are possibly stronger in terms of visual 'moments' than I was giving them credit for...
