I have been streaming, and I am halfway through. I thoroughly enjoy the movie and I will be purchasing! I do have one question though, do the feet symbolize anything? It always shows her feet while she is walking, when she gets hurt, and it shows her footprints a few times. Am I reading too much into it, or was it an intentional theme?
hopefully pausing doesn’t mess up the pacing of the film, and I’m glad you like it so far. Yes actually, following the feet, photographs of feet, Franks loud foosteps, Icecream on shoes, shoes, footprints,getting cut on the foot, and eventually the opposite of feet (wheelchair/elevator), are a major theme of the piece. On the shallowest, most basic level, feet used to really disgust me. For some reason I couldn’t stand being near them or having them touch me, which translated into the film.
On a more developed aesthetic, feet show action. Movement, development, racing, running, etc. Although this is a purposely paced ”slow-burner” the feet are used to remind us about the race against time. That the action must continue and be constant or the characters won’t achieve any of their personal goals.
Thank you for the question!
Spoiler: Eventually it shows the unnatural movement of the suited man. You think you’ve seen him walking and moving like a human, until he moves/teleports/jumps/disappears/whathaveyou
