There’s Something Different About You

Jack says, “This sort of romp might have worked in the nineties, may have held up in the fifties, but now unless it’s Shakespeare or a horror movie and the killer’s pretending to be somebody else, and everyone in the film believes the lie, easily, like babies not programmed to question, it’s a bunch of over-privileged Americans pretending to be poor.”

We stick with it, but even I lost Lost before the finale. Twenty minutes from the end of Monte Carlo I imagine that they aren’t actresses pretending to be characters pretending to be other characters, but instead it’s another dimension and they’re dead and it’s an over-simplified analogy, or maybe a quite complicated one, for how there’s nothing.
