Vinnie’s Sporadic Scene: The Virgin Suicides(1999) – Call Us

Today I welcome Vinnie to my blog with his scene pick. Thanks a lot!

If you have a scene that you would like featured, drop me a mail at with a picture/gif/video of the scene and an explanation as to why (should you want to include it).

There’s something so haunting about this scene. The way that hardly any dialogue is spoken, yet the music becomes the voices of the isolated characters. With each song that is played and from every longing look, we see how isolated the girls are and their relief at having someone of the outside world listen to them. While the boys are wrapped up in their dreams of helping the girls in their own way. There’s such a lyrical quality to the scene through the colours and the split screen, which further enhances isolation and alienation. With this scene, we see that music is a language all of its own.

  1. This is the only movie besides Dazed and Confused(Possibly) that looks like it was made in the 70’s. Not just set there. The color and the tone of characters and settings make it look like so Great Job Vinnie

  2. I’ve been struck by this film title a lot lately, it’s popping up everywhere. Great choice, Vinnie, you may very wel have pushed this into ‘must-see’ territory for me. 🙂
