What type of lighting style is this

Is there a name for this style, how is it done? Is it just a head on spotlight?
Sorry for the bad reference, I know I have seen this in other vids but I couldn't pinpoint what to call it.

You need to post your full name, It's a requirement of this forum.
I think this style of lighting is the "Ive forgotten to post a link so that people can see what I'm referring to" kind of style.
Although i could be wrong!

is it like some scenes in "eternal sunshine of a spotless mind"? if so, then yes, it is just a light, either mounted to the camera or handheld by someone.

And as well, sorry about the missing link, didn't mean to upset anyone.
Anyways, this is the lighting style I was talking about.

I figured it had to be a snooted fresnel, wasn't certain though.
I have plans to use this lightning style for an upcoming shoot.
The thing is that the background will be white, or more exactly, Specular/Glossy white.
Is this doable? How much distance would I need from the object and the wall? Is there gonna be a whole lot of flagging?
Can I achieve this spotlight look with all the ambient light the backwall will generate?
