I don't feel qualified to answer any of these, but this is my favorite analysis of the film, which may get your pot stirring:
Probably September or October. And then the poster with a title afterward...
I'm not sure what the classical interpretation is but...

1. I thought they personified Diane's guilt/remorse over what she had done. Once she received confirmation that the deed was done, the dumpster man "unleashed" them on her. Not sure why they're in the blue box, maybe because that's where her memories were stored (we see the flashbacks after Rita opens it) and guilt is part of those memories. I also read a theory that supports this: The old woman's name is Irene, which sounds similar to Erinyes, who were Greek deities (also called the Furies) that resembled women and tormented the guilt.

2. Again, not sure what the classical approach is, but Camilla and Diane were in a romantic relationship and Camilla eventually wanted to break it off but Diane was obsessed with her.

3. Are you talking about the during the dinner scene toward the end? I think the kiss implied that Diane wasn't as important to Camilla as Diane had thought, that to Camilla she was just a fling and that the blonde was maybe both friends with Camilla and having sex with her. It made Diane far more jealous/humiliated.
anyone know of a possible release date for a trailer or poster?

I like that Sansa appears to be giving us a new version of Jack's "live together, die alone" speech. My two favorite shows are converging!

Going into Season 7, this has really been on my mind:

Aegon Targaryen conquered Westeros with three dragons. Sound familiar? I imagined he had a fleet of them, but nope, just three. With those dragons, he was able to instantly immolate entire battlefields of soldiers, or burn everything inside a castle and essentially melt the stone. Nuclear weapons are an apt comparison. I suspect we haven't seen in the show how powerful Dany's dragons actually are... not even close.

Just to reiterate: Dragons of this size can literally melt castles and burn an entire battlefield. I predict (or hope) that Daenerys will give Westeros a spectacular display of force, and they will respond with a somewhat peaceful surrender. Then the show will reveal the full power of the dragons in their battle against the white walkers.

Definitely Spoilers

So it looks like Euron is attacking King's Landing. I haven't read theories on this, but I'll throw in two scenarios:

– Euron is dumb and attacks King's Landing before Daenerys gets there. Then maybe Daenerys flanks him from behind, destroying both his forces and Cersei's when they're already battling.

– Daenerys actually fought Euron at sea earlier and defeated him. She has commandeered his ships and sends them in as a distraction. Then she attacks King's Landing from a different position.

Odd that they made a 35mm print when it wasn't even shot on film, same with Fury Road 2 years ago. I thought QT was of the belief movies should be projected in their intended format.

As for Okja, the trailer is sooooo good. I must have watched it over a dozen times, the Mamas and Papas track strongly stirring my emotional well with each play. Haven't seen any of Bong's films, yet have used his glass-spun smoking apparatus' on a few occasions.
Hope to find the time to Netflix Mother and Host before this comes out next week.

via July's New Bev calendar aka via QT

first of all, this title:

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds


The thrilling grindhouse clonesploitation classic that was itself cloned into Michael Bay’s The Island (2005), with ensuing lawsuit and all.  Where science and nightmare merge lies Clonus, an isolated compound where cloned humans are used as an organ farm for the American elite. But when one clone begins to question his existence, it triggers a deadly chain reaction that threatens to expose the secret facility and its nefarious program. Featuring Mission: Impossible’s Peter Graves as a president-elect with secrets to hide and legendary character actor Keenan Wynn as a journalist trying to put together the pieces of this complex political puzzle.

They duplicated one man too many. They had to find him. And kill him! When a top nuclear scientist uncovers a top secret experiment creating clones, he’ll struggle to prove that he’s himself and not his manufactured doppelgänger. It’s a high tech, totally bonkers paranoid thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. The Clones – it may seem like science fiction… but it’s based on science fact.

(Today a friend from Twitter posted a picture of Jodoroswky doing Tarot with a lot of people around him in a café. Fun.

if only tarot cards could fast lane into pop culture mania. either all of paganism is making its way there, or the next generation of new agers are being established. a combination is possible. either way, Tom Noonan's The Wife
