Here's Your Life is the Big City/Charulata when we know Emigrants/New Land and Apu Trilogy are coming at some point. total consolation prizes, and damn good ones at that!

Nah, definitely Midnight Cowboy, but they are going to delay the announcement again for a couple more years instead of announcing it three months later like they do all their other Newsletter clues.

(Here's Your Life seems a pretty safe bet given this:

Adding to the pile of "It's very likely to be Here's Your Life", it was somewhat recently restored by the Swedish film institute and is the only film on their list of films available for DCP rental which offers English subtitles.

I can see how a case can be made for Here's Your Life. I Think eventually it will get a blu-ray release but I still think the clue is for Tree of Life. Criterion is never one to pass up an opportunity of a good pun. Consider Bad Lambs, Caught C's, Broadcast Gnus, etc.

I'm guessing Henry: Por-tray-t of a Cereal Killer

If this were @midnight, mteller could "win the Internet" with that answer.

Boxed set of VH-1's The Surreal Life. At last.

It's a breakfast tray: it seems to me that Waking Life is the only answer that actually addresses the clue. Here's Your Life (tucked away behind a bowl of cereal and other stuff that has absolutely no relevance to the clue) seems an extremely tenuous reading of that image, even for this thread!

It's a shame that, whatever film is being represented, it's definitely not Life and Nothing More.

Waking Life is the only one of the (serious) candidates that I can't stand, so it's almost certainly that.

While I guessed Waking Life as well, I'm not sure what to make of the hand--gloved? wearing a watch?--except that it suggests someone is serving the Life cereal, which makes sense for Here's Your Life.

The gloved hands and jacket with the buttons seem to suggest to me a butler saying 'Here's your Life, sir.'

Now that Here Is Your Life has been announced, I'll eat my hat.

Fortunately, my hat is made of marzipan.

Unfortunately, I hate marzipan.

I'm surprised how fast the clue for Here Is Your Life was given a release. This month's clue will announce The Black Stallion.

Oh, wait. The Black Stallion was already clued in in this double clue -

But you get your choice of toppings!

The toppings contain potassium benzoate
