Movie Parallels: "Strangers on a Train" (1951) vs. "Filth" (2013)

Don't tell me I'm the only one who has noticed the striking similarity between the scene from "Strangers on a Train" (Alfred Hitchcock, 1951) where Robert Walker bursts a pestering, little kid's balloon and the scene from "Filth" (Jon S. Baird, 2013) where James McAvoy lets a pestering, little kid's balloon fly?


And the funny thing is that James McAvoy has actually, previously, reinacted the famous shot - for a Vanity Fair shoot - from "Strangers on a Train" where Robert Walker's character charms James Farley. And James is in Robert's place! How ironic is that?!
