can't say as I recognize it per se, but it reminds me of the kitchen scene in The Hours, w/ Toni Colette? The cinematic/cunningham take on the "match burning in a crocus" bit -- the hottest/most evocative line in lesbian lit.

@Betsy: I love that this image evoked that scene for you. It's not an especially lesbian moment, though now that you mention it...

@BDB: You got it. I too love the movie for those tiny details.

Brian, I remember you writing that Sissy Spacek's performance in Carrie might just be your favorite female performance ever! :)

when I think of Carrie, I think of my first Smackdown, which was 1976 :D and Piper Laurie won. by general consensus.

@Alex: Indeed. I don't know that I have a more favorite performance.

Memory of watching this movie: Realizing - watching it for the first time after you telling me it might be your favorite movie of all time - that Stinky knows his shit, movie-wise.
