Re: me confusing Mandy and Domino: I meant whoever looks kind of like Hilary Swank. The woman in purple.

I just don't think it mattered to him whether or not the movie was sexy, since it wasn't the point. Beautiful naked women don't need to be sexy to be great art.

I can see that. Again, it could be the whole don't-let-Doctor-Bill-enjoy-any-of-this factor that the nudity isn't sexy. I think I'm at risk of talking out my ass on this subject, so I'll move on...

I guess so. Though that outline could apply to a lot of different movies.

It's almost the "Hero's Journey" of a lot of horror films, even the Friday the 13th-type crap. Writing that summation made me think of both Stephen King's Danse Macabre and fireside horror stories like the hook-hand guy attacking the teens in the car ("...and his hook was still hanging on the door handle!").

Well, if you can call breaking down and asking Alice what they should do "assertive".

True. Again, I'm going on eight-year-old memories of the film. Good thing Leelee Sobieski is plenty old enough for me to lust after her now without discomfort...

Oh, and I'm liking your Belle et la Bete icon. Back in the mid-90s in Eugene I saw Philip Glass's live opera performance of the film, with his music played with the movie and live vocalists on stage; the poster for the show simply turned that image 90 degrees clockwise, so that her face is level with his. Made it nicely off-kilter, as it wasn't obvious that the image was turned on its side.

Domino.

Thanks.

I wish I'd seen that. I like listening to the opera on the Criterion disk.
