Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
Question: Why was Evan interviewed separately from the other "survivors"? Why is he so special; I thought all he did was win the lottery?
Question: Here's something I don't fully understand. At the end of the movie just before Carter dies, him, Clear and Alex are all drinking alcohol. They were just graduating from high school, or at least they were going to as Clear said that she and Alex went through four years of it, and only a few months had passed since then, so how are they drinking it at all? Did they have passports and if so, why? Are the rules different in France? Was it a special occasion? I just don't see it happening when you have to be twenty-one.
Question: After Miguel comes back to the land of the living, does the family believe that he went to the Land of the Dead? And if not, then do they believe that Hector got murdered, since the letters to Coco prove that he was the writer of De la Cruz's songs? And if they believe, do they manage to prove this to the general public and that is why they hate him? Or do they just hate him because they discovered that he lied about writing his own songs?
Question: Is removing hands, feet and teeth really sufficient to prevent the corpses being identified? What about DNA?
Question: At the end, when Jefferey shoots Frank in the forehead, the film editing becomes confusing, with two different closeup shots of Frank immediately after the gunfire. One shot is obviously Dennis Hopper with a wide-eyed and shocked expression (as well a hole in his head) as he falls backwards. But the following split-second closeup shot is apparently not Dennis Hopper: He now has what looks like facial hair, a sullen expression, larger brow and eyes that seem almost swollen shut (and he's still falling backwards). This second cut looks like a rubber mask or very, very different makeup from that which Dennis Hopper was wearing just a fraction of a second before. The appearance is so different that I wonder if David Lynch was ever asked to explain the continuity error?Charles Austin Miller
Question: What's the music playing at the end of the basketball game when the Medfield Squirrels win?
