Thought we could all pitch in & help each other in this one. What are some scenes in films you just can’t get your head around? Seem to come out of nowhere, & disappear never to be seen or tied together with anything again. Maybe our different interpretations can enlighten one another. I was talking recently with a colleague who recommended to me Ex Machina. That sequence where the creator abruptly breaks into this tonally bizarre dance routine with one of his slaves!? At the time I was watching I thought it was wildly out of place, but trusted it would make sense at the film’s conclusion. Sure didn’t seem to. What do people make of this scene? It’s so bizarre & senseless to me!? One other. In Flatliners (the under-rated original by Joel Schumacher, not the flop re-make of 2017), early in the film, Kevin Bacon’s character decides to leave his Medical College & abandon his degree - so how does he leave his dormitory & the University!? The most sane way possible, of course - by stringing together bedsheets & rapelling out his dorm window to the ground below with a knapsack on his back - as though he’s an absconding 14-year-old in a Wes Anderson movie. Weirder still is Kiefer Sutherland’s character is waiting at ground level for him, & just treats the entire thing like it’s the most normal thing in the world. LOLwut!?
