(Wes Anderson) rushmore phallic symbol?

i never really thought about this type of things in movies (well apart from the whole Disney thing a few years back) until i read up on Vertigo and Hitchcock said Coit Tower was a phallic symbol for Scotty and his apartment, etc.....maybe jokingly, but who knows?

but anywho, you may think this is dumb, but it seems obvious and i wondered if anyone else ever thought this.

the playground scene with Blume and Miss Cross.....the slide?

The train going into the tunnel at the end of "North By Northwest" is one too.

And Dirk Diggler's penis.

I hear the monolith may be one in 2001, even though Kubrick wanted a big black sphere initially.

just watch the scene.

I know exactly what you're talking about. Yes, it's a phallic symbol. The big slide shute thing in the background.

Lord, even the most innocent scenes have to have dick humor in it.

did you read Anderson or someone involved with the picture mention it.........or are you thinking it's just too obvious to not be?

Too obvious. I noticed it in the theater when I first saw it.

Don't forget the castle in The Little Mermaid...representing Ariel's desire for human intercourse.
