Scene: "Night Shift," 35 Shots of Rum (148/13)
[This scene doesn't really work out of context in my opinion—you need to know who these people are in relation to one another, and that's frequently tough to decipher even when you see the entire film. (I spent a recent second viewing straining for clues as to whether Jo and Noé are rekindling a relationship that ended some time ago or belatedly starting one that's never begun, to no avail.) But hey, it's a great song.]
Hunger is McQueen's feature debut.
Of the actors, we've only seen Weisz before; she finished 13th in the same category for The Constant Gardener (2005).
Gilroy placed 7th two years ago for Michael Clayton.
