In my previous puzzle, I tried making my own word association test with a twist and I guess it was too easy.

This time I started with 54 words, each 3-word color coded group will correspond to the answer on the 1st level (A1, B1..); after completing first layer, letter-coded 3-word group will be the clue to the 2nd level (A2, B2...); which then will be the clue to the movie title. There will be six words at the end, words/ clue that are significant to the film.

I only have one answer in mind, although there could be other possible answers, I don't think it will make sense at the end.

The movie is:

Stranger than Fiction

First level:

A1 is death + sin + break
B1 is time + look + think
C1 is pine + big + orange
D1 is dark + error + sit   — thanks OP for sit
E1 is mail + passive + box   — thanks @Will for mail & passive
F1 is fortune + monster + sharp

Second level:

A2 is tax
B2 is watch   — thanks OP
C2 is crush?
D2 is comedy?
E2 is voice   — thanks @Will again
F2 is cookie

    $\begingroup$ Looks like your missing E1 would be "passive" $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Also, "natural" should instead be "mail" and E2 is "voice" $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Correct! Just polish C and D, B2 is supposed to be "watch". The third word on D1 is "sit" $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Rubio I suspect that it's "sit" as in "babysit", which is caring for someone. $\endgroup$ Nov 18, 2016 at 14:58

Partial Answer

A1: death, sin, ???
B1: time, ???, ???
C1: pine, ???, orange
D1: ???, error, ???
E1: ???, ???, box
