It's not,but you're going roughly in the right direction(timewise,think even earlier though,by almost a decade).
First(oke second now^) clue straight off then,the warning below(/naming of) the pic is to be taken literally.
So a beverage it certainly is not. ;)

Nope.


...Nah, just kidding. Yes, it's Sin City, specifically the point where Jackie Boy's (already severed, a long story) head is blown up thanks to a remote-control grenade detonation. :D

Did anyone find the conversation between the deceased Jackie Boy (played with macabre glee by Benicio del Toro) and Dwight (Clive Owen) the height of dark comedy? :lol:

I've just found Sin City on DVD for £1 in a charity shop. I've never seen it before - is it any good?

Going back to Mycroft's question: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde? :?

Depends on your tastes. It's very much a heavy noir sort of movie that isn't for a lot of people (the author of the original graphic novels seems to have a thing for...seamstresses, shall we say? And he also holds lots of right wing values. There's a reason one of the graphic novels is called Booze, Broads and Bullets...) but it is entertaining, and with an all-star cast. If you wanted to see Mickey Rourke duke it out with Elijah Wood, or Bruce Willis save Jessica Alba's life, well, there you go. Certainly one pound is an excellent price for it.

The film is separated into three main stories: The Hard Goodbye, The Big Fat Kill, and That Yellow Bastard, with two other short sequences bookending the film. The screenshot is from the end of The Big Fat Kill, and I've decided to post the aforementioned sequence with Dwight (played by Clive Owen) hallucinating the dead Jackie Boy (played by Benicio del Toro) speaking to him. BTW, this scene was directed by Quentin Tarantino, while the rest of the film was a collaboration between Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Warning: it is rather grotesque. Jackie Boy has had his throat slit, and that is a gun slide in his head. There's a reason this film is rated MA 15+ in Australia (15/18 for UK residents, I think).

Nope not even close i'm afraid,on with the clues. ;)
This film is thankfully not dubbed,so it's not in english...
It might be harder than i estimated,so i'll even give one more clue.
Although the suspense is quite a lot more in the narrative then in the effects,explosions do play a big part in it...
I wonder if that'll do it. :)

Apparantly not. :D
Further clue and i'll make it a big one,it starred a quite famous french singer/actor('discovered' by Edith Piaf no less,this particular movie made him famous internationally),which cost me a 10,- guilder bet(=Fl. was a bit before the euro (€) at the time.
I was convinced it starred Jean-Paul Belmondo,which it turned out it just doesn't... :doh:

Maybe not big enough of a clue,here come some bigger clues then. :P
I'll throw in some more screenshots,see if that rings any bells.
First off a nicely ironic one,as it's wrong by about 59 years. :mrgreen:

Secondly,i'll solve the mystery of the composition of the drop of liquid in the first screenshot,now that should really do it... :whistle:

This is a guess, based on research, but looking back at the screenshots and the clues, there's really only one: The Wages of Fear?

I did make it googable,didn't i... :D
Although it's not the original title,which would have been much preferred :roll: :
Le salaire de la peur(1953).

Great classic suspense thriller,which made Yves Montand famous globally.

Okay, well, my turn. This one should be easy. In fact, I'll be surprised if someone doesn't get it straight off the bat.

Hmm? What's that Dottie*? This Sporting Life? Dear dear dear, I should have made it more difficult. Yes, the screenshot is of This Sporting Life, hmmf.

And THAT was my very bad William Hartnell impression. :?

*That was my attempt to emulate the First Doctor changing 'Chesterton' (the surname of Ian, one of his first companions) to other names like 'Chesterfield', 'Chartow', 'Chesserman', 'Chatterton', etc. And then there's this funny line from The Romans...

Doctor: I don't know that I was under any obligation to report my movements to you, Chesterfield.
Barbara: Chesterton.
Doctor: Oh, Barbara's calling you.
