Their bond was so strong,

Death could not keep them apart ...

Unfortunately.

My last guest: Tarkovsky's Solaris. After that I'm stumped.

A few more of my own:

Just leave him alone.

Romanes eunt domus.

There's been some mistake.

Suffering from guilt,

She pauses for some rest, but

Mother is upset.

Four witnesses; but

All their stories are diff'rent.

Is there any hope?

I don't think it is

as obscure or difficult

as you're making it.

Just leave him alone.

Romanes eunt domus.

Life of Brian.

Four witnesses; but

All their stories are diff'rent.

Rashomon.

Rashomon. Especially if you replaced Toshiro Mifune with Conrad Bain.

Well, Willis, Arnold,

Kimb'ly, Mrs. Garrett--their

stories often clashed.

Yes. The "diff'rent" was to emphaize that I was counting the word as two syllables, because different is technically three, although no one I know pronounces it that way.

Just leave him alone.

Life of Brian.

Of course.

You need a system

Among films that fit,

Romeo and Juliet

is one. But still -- Nope.

Does Romeo and Juliet fit approximately as well as the film you were thinking of? Or, offered a choice between Romeo and Juliet and the film you were thinking of, would the film you were thinking of be the obvious right choice?

Unfortunately.

Amour?

Corpse Bride?

Nope. Nope.

Not a recent film,

but there is a recent film

that concerns this film.

Going out on a limb here.... at first I thought "Death could not keep them apart", might be a rewording of a song from West Side Story... but then your clue. "a recent film that concerns this film" threw me. So, I'm going to go completely away from the Romeo and Juliet angle, and guess...

The Shining.

The bond being between the Overlook Hotel, Jack Torrence, and what may be his past caretaker personas. The recent film being Room 237.

The "bond" I spoke of

was not a romantic one.

At least I hope not.

Psycho.

Indubitably.

Scintillatingly deduced.

Congratulations.

Okay, I know. "A recent film that concerns film" was the giveaway.

Psycho.

Oooooo.... that works too. Probably "a bingo!" (as Hans Landa would say).

It could possibly

be Les Miserables, but it

probably isn't.

Nope.

If only you knew

The level of irony

That's in the answer.

To watch the parade

You need a DC Mini

In everyone's dreams

Haven't seen it yet, but based on descriptions I've heard and considering it's on the A&F top 100 list, I'm going to say Paprika.

You're about to wit-

ness the greatest miracle

of the machine age.

Modern Times?

Two more:

What is the title?

A world destroying gang, or

Just a red herring?

Having lived his life,

He tries to alter the end

And must thwart himself.

First one is 12 Monkeys. My guess for the second is Citizen Kane. Or A Christmas Carol.

It's the side effects that save us.
