That's veteran actor Henry Silva in the middle and the movie is Ghost Dog starring Forest Whitaker.

Mine ? Close and by the same director.

Going on willco's commentary and the picture, I'm guessing a movie to do with the massacre at Nanking. They look like Japanese soldiers though I don't know the movie.

Here's an image of an excellent movie. It's actually a trilogy which runs for about 10 hours. Highly recommended.

Back to this one and the name of this excellent movie(s) as it forms part of a 10 hour trilogy is The Human Condition. It centres on the experiences of a conscientious objector who is drafted into the army and sent to Manchuria during the Japanese occupation of Manchuria. Another disturbing war movie.

Spot on.

 

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai is one of my fave Jarmush movies and this scene about messenger pigeons at local top brass mob meeting is certainly a highlight.

Try this one. It got mixed reviews but I quite liked it. Clue : One of the lead actors is Spanish.

know it!!!!

 

a few guys getting chocked by a simple yet unstoppable strangle gadget. heaps of A stars in it: Fassbender, Pitt, Bardem....

 

a Ridley Scott movie I think

 

Counselor or something

 

 

edit: I enjoyed it too , maybe a bit over produced, too slick for its own good, but ultimately a good film

A slight digression any Melbourne based SNA ers get to see The Clock at ACMI?

I went twice stayed 3 hours both times, mesmerising and totally addictive!

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/feb/04/the-clock-how-a-24-hour-concept-art-film-made-me-reconsider-melbourne-and-mortality

 

Shown in real time 24 hours of 1000's of film clips, every minute a clock will be somewhere in the frame tellling the real time!

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Clock_(2010_film)

<The Clock is an art installation by video artist Christian Marclay. It is a looped 24-hour video supercut (montage of scenes from film and television) that feature clocks or timepieces. The artwork itself functions as a clock: its presentation is synchronized with the real time, resulting in the time shown in a scene being the actual time.

Marclay developed the idea for The Clock while working on his 2005 piece Screen Play. With the support of the London-based White Cube gallery, he assembled a team to find footage, which he edited together over the course of three years. Marclay debuted The Clock at White Cube's London gallery in 2010. The work garnered critical praise, winning the Golden Lion at the 2011 Venice Biennale. Its six editions were purchased by major museums, allowing it to attract a widespread following. >

 

here's a short clip from it

Close. You got the right actor but it's a different film.
