Could it be Yang's A BRIGHTER SUMMER DAY? It would make up for Badlands!

Nope.

I realise now (blame Google Images!). Is there anything like that in the Samurai Trilogy? Just thinking of films that might have landscape of some sort in it. Could Criterion have picked a more Badlands-y still?

They already released Walkabout though.

This is exactly what came to my mind.

Seems like a good guess to me. We've known it's coming for a while, and while I haven't seen the film, the movie poster has that same "Badlands" look (as though one film could have a monopoly on sunsets!)

And while I know this isn't very reliable, for what it's worth, the sky in the screenshots on Google images almost exactly match too...

No, I think it's likely a much older film than that.

It isn't definite. The sky is a different colour. There are no fences or cacti. There are branches everywhere.
Hopefully someone can skim through the film and see if there's a frame match...

Is the film any good?

EDIT: A guy I'm friends with on FB is saying this is definitely from Alambrista - that it is one of his favourite films of all time, he knows it by heart and this moment comes from when the main guy is crossing from Mexico to Cali.

I know they said no one guessed it on their Facebook page but I swear it's Badlands. The only other one I can think of is maybe Mishima, but the colours are all wrong.

Having just seen Badlands, there's honestly nothing like that in the film. Sunrises, but no sunsets, and definitely none with a figure in the foreground, whatever the poster may say.

And there does look to be a fence in that picture, or at least some definite poles sticking up from the bramble. If not a fence, telephone poles?

It could be a documentary for all we know.

Sorry, but how do you know if it's a sunset or sunrise? I understand from a narrative standpoint they are sunrises in Badlands but how would you know if the picture from Facebook was a sunset or sunrise? I really am interested if there is some specific reason you think the picture is of a sunset.

Thread takes a surprising turn to epistemology.

Is this supposed to be a clue that it's actually Fiddler on the Roof?

Nice, Fiddler is MGM....
I once knew someone who took a picture of the sun in the clouds from a helicopter and even though there where obvious landmarks showing that the picture was taken facing the East people were conflicted as to if it was a sunset or sunrise. So, I was just wondering what made the Facebook picture look like a sunset.

Wondering if this could be from The Last Movie - I recall having seen the shot in a film, but where? Brighter Summer Day would have been quite a treat, just as Badlands, but alas... :?

Looking through The Last Movie I can see similar skies but the background is mountainous and there is no hunched figure or tree.

This is from Alambrista!

Believe me, not from The Last Movie, as much as I want it to. :D
