Maybe not it, but this scene in particular is similar to end of The Girl on a Motorcycle (1968).

Not subtitled, but very Euro-artsy and it did get a showing on BBC 1 after midnight in May...

Very much a perfume film.

There's little substance to it, but the scent of it hangs heavy.

Seeing as Marvel are perhaps in need of a bit more diversity, I predict it will take its cues from the first CA film and expand into a full-blown forties-style musical. Snappy tunes, huge dance...

The Blue Nile

Wildly feted in some quarters, but never quite dented the mainstream.

That's true, but then the casual audience, who perhaps only see these things the once in theatres anyway, might be the ones who are starting to drift away.

Possibly. The success of GOTG showed that...

So, Kingsman ends up with a very tidy $403m ww with a sequel greenlit (of course).

Didn't think it would trump Taken 3 ($325m), but there you go.

Mostly a mess stuffed full of half-realised ideas. The solid central narrative that marked the first Alien films is sorely missed.

However its US box-office isn't on pace with the first and wont get near the $623m that made. Have Marvel plateaued or...
