Pardon me, Mr. Grant, while I borrow your very fun Screen Capture Quiz concept for today's post. If you aren't a regular visitor of Like Anna Karina's Sweater, you should be, and if you aren't already a full-blown supporter of Benten Films, you will be once you get your hands on their third release. I have seen and touched the stately two-disc set of Todd Rohal's The Guatemalan Handshake, and I can confirm that it is another wonderfully put together package. Which leads us into today's pop quiz. Kind of.

For my quiz, I'm not here to ask you what movie this image is from. I'm going to tell you right now. It comes from Oliver Stone's Oscar-winning Born on the Fourth of July. No, my friends, my question is much different. The question is this:

What celebrated director makes an appearance in the following image? I don't want to give too much away, but let's just say that this year he'll be making a pretty big splash in both art houses and multiplexes.

I have nothing to offer you in exchange for your correct answer(s), so why not post your thoughts in the comments section here and see if we can provide some daytime entertainment for all of you bored indieWIRE blog readers out there in the electronic cosmos. Without further ado, here... we... go...

    As unwatchable as the original, just in a different way!

    Chris - are you telling me you haven't heard about the upcoming Brett Ratner remake of FROWNLAND starring Dane Cook?

    "This year he'll be making a pretty big splash in both art houses and multiplexes" -- definitely DGG. So fresh-faced!

    Andrew, I like the wishful idea of FROWNLAND making a big splash at the multiplexes...

    Hey Mike -- thanks for the shout out and the kind words about the upcoming DVD.

    As for the quiz, for the life of me I can't figure out who that is. A young Todd Rohal? Ronnie Bronstein? Or is it one of the 85 Baldwin brothers who appear in the film?

    I'll say dgg.
