    Live and more alert than is (in theory) humanly safe after nine straight large cups of Cold Brew with espresso chasers, from CSR’s home away from home during the latest Massachusetts enforced quarantine (the last being during the Elizabeth Warren incident of 2018, when the entirety of Suffolk County was placed under martial alert when it was discovered that Senator and Presidential Hopeless Elizabeth Warren had somewhere  misplaced her last morsels of credibility resulting in spectacularly intrusive search and seizure tactics until ending the dragnet by crawling underneath the Albino Squaw’sbsistersgif very own refrigerator only to find an abandoned beer bottle cap, two frozen peas and a quantity of vole droppings), the outdoor patio of the B.Sisters Café, our little local oasis for wayward advanced creative thinking while avoiding the government’s move toward a freer society through isolation (isn’t this one of the “cruel and unusual” characteristics featured in the arguments to close Alcatraz to all but curious tourists and bad Michael Bay movies?); a haven (an oasis, if you will, since we always like to make use of that investment in that pricey copy of Roget’s Thesaurus whenever possible) for soaking up healthful Vitamin D while supping on the sweet sustenance of the caffeine chromosome (Is there such a thing?… well if there isn’t, there ought to be.), and if it isn’t apparent to regular readers of CSR (Hey you two!), this is the time in which we announce all of this distracting pontification as the natural segue in introducing this very special edition of America’s least understood (and most misidentified in police lineups) brain massage, the Classic Film Image Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those wonderful folks who bring you SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy, though not featured in any of the twenty five images comprising this quiz, which, as you may have surmised, is a tribute to those fine gals at B.Sisters Café who satisfy our most desperate cravings for a cup of mocha java despite the external perils of rain, sleet, high winds and snow (just like the Post Office, except letter carriers tend to give you a look of puzzlement when you request a hazelenut syrup shot), which is why the following twenty five movie images feature characters in the process of enjoying a good cup cinematic o’ joe,  which, as you might expect, leads us to the challenge of identifying all of the images (laying claim to twenty four correct solutions is impressive but won’t get you a discount at the deli counter, buckaroo) for the expressed purpose of laying your mitts on the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award, one of the few remaining pocket-sized 7 Modern Wonders of the World which does not involve counterfeiting passports or the redemption of BOGO coupons, and with that nugget of useless information in mind we say Good Luck! and where’s me next pot o’ java?

About chandlerswainreviews

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.

    A caffeine inspired attempt this morning.
    1) Coffee and Cigarettes. (Got that on DVD)
    2) Amelie. (She’s drinking tea though)
    3) The Cotton Club.
    4) The Russians Are coming.
    5) The Wild One.
    6) Bad Teacher.
    7) The Devil Wears Prada.
    8) Nope.
    9) No Name On The Bullet. (I saw that at the cinema. God knows why, but I was young)
    10) Roadhouse. (I am sure that’s Ida Lupino)
    11) Minnie and Moskovitz. (Cassavetes)
    12) Pennies From Heaven. (The UK TV series was far superior)
    13) A Countess From Hong Kong.
    14) Road To Perdition. (I really like that film)
    15) Jubal. (Rod Steiger was in that)
    16) Nope.
    17) Nope. (It’s about spies, and a house on a numbered street. But I can’t remember)
    18) Nope.
    19) The Trouble With Harry. (Edmund Gwenn)
    20) Detour.
    21) The Romantic Englishwoman. (Michael Caine)
    22) Sudden Impact. (That’s Eastwood)
    23) After Hours. (Loved Terri Garr in that film)
    24) Nope.
    25) Angel Heart.
    So, a reasonably confident 20/25. I am annoyed I can’t remember 17 though.
    Best wishes, David Lynch.

  2. Okay…20. I’m going to say Detour. I’m pretty sure about that correction. The rest I don’t know.
