For instance, the number "Triplets"– which recasts full-grown adults as monstrous baby-children–
captures an uncanny sense of proportion and movement that probably belongs in a CHILD'S PLAY movie.
Later, the show-stopping "Girl Hunt Ballet" depicts a crime-laden labyrinth of candy-colored terror
with ominous shadows at every turn,
creepy silk quasi-surgical masks,
I need a closer look at that...
My God, WHY?!
Real heads, too? And what's with the terrifying papier-maché Freddy Krueger head beside him?! I'll be seeing that rictus grin in my nightmares!
and violence meted out at every turn by hordes of identical noir villains, whose choreographed uniformity and overwhelming force of numbers feel like a more existential threat, like something out of a Kafka story. Hell, they probably work for the same government that's depicted in THE TRIAL.
I mean, look at the effect all this has on Astaire.
