So I'll post it agian so people dont have to browse back.

And here are some hints.
The film has cult status. This scene was shot with high speed camera. However it is more known for its use of time lapsing.

And here are the hints and some more.
-The film has cult status.
-This scene was shot with high speed camera. But it is more known for its use of time lapsing.
-The film had a lot of buildings in it.
-A lot of organ music.
-It's the first and most well known part of a trilogy.
-There are no words spoken in the film.
-Some might have said it made the background of present day society (1982) into actor/subject.
-If you have found the title of the film all you have to do is google for pictures and this frame will show first page.

I think we are going to have to admit defeat on this one, its been a weak and still no one has got it.

Googleing around I found it was;
Spoiler:

Koyaanisqatsi





But I dont know the film myself.
You just gave enough clues to work it out.

Also, I love the note currently on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._films_of_1982
"Annoying musical score by Philip Glass"

You found it

Anyway the film is a bit of a drag if you see it on a small screen. But last time I checked it was still on Googlevideo. have a go...skip the boring parts perhaps :P

think you might wanna skip the first 19 minutes :P

Not really, no.
I will say its pretty darn famous, so most people should have a chance to get it, even if it is a hard image.

oh, and another small clue....that screen is actualy in the trailer to the movie, so I think a lot of people here have a chance to get this one even if they never saw the film.

Well it's a finger, so the missing item is probably a drop of blood. I have no idea what movie.

Sorry, I kinda forgot about this



The character in this movie is missing a certain piece of headwear.

I need from you:

1) The movie's title;
2) The type of headwear and a really short description of the particular properties of it.

Naa, it's not a war movie. Although there are some war-related elements in the movie.

It's a highschool comedy/drama.

And no, it's not a helmet.

The wideangle, kinda fisheye shot should be a huge hint to the movie's director. It's one of his trademarks.
