When Kenneth is first holding the Modern Leisure Appliances postcard picture side up, we see on the underside some smaller pictures of different variations of the doll. When he turns it over, it bears only blank space and the MLA contact info. See more »
This film is very well written, directed, acted and executed. It contains some great humor. It works on multiple levels and has a lot of symbols (if Parigi was Lynch's pupil the master would be proud of him). However the film is very depressing, probably the most depressing I have seen in a while. And I being a big fan of dark comedies, do not get depressed easily.
I left the film in a very bad mood, a dire need of a strong drink and desire to see a silly comedy, action, romance - anything to get rid of the aftertaste...
I would recommend it to an emotionally stable connoisseur, though...
