Hi! Recently has looked this film. Game Ellen deserves the most flatter words. The film has very much liked, at it there is an atmosphere of despondency, madness, grief. That that all so is hopeless and bad. I like the girl which has played Ellen, I would like to have such girl-friend. To me it is very nice. I would like to embrace and kiss her.

But I wish to ask here that:
1. Why Billy Zero has thrown out Tracey from the car?
2. Also that was with brother Tracey Sonni?

Sorry for my bad english...

My take on why Billy threw her out of the car was that he was a 'player'. He just uses girls for sex and that's the brunt of it. From Ellen's character's pov, she was probably in love with him, or obsessed because he was either her first or she was attracted to Billy's ability to not care for anyone or anything.

Sonni? I gather he was just a fixation. Maybe representing a dog fits into the relevance of Ellen's character being used and vacant or disowned.

Are you saying you thought Billie looked gay? He looked like a bit more of a punk who doesn't give a crap about anything, the kinda sleaze who has sex with a girl, shoves her out of the car and moves on to the next. He was a bit skinny and feminine looking but it's just because he isn't a big, strong jock, he's the kind of rebel punk that gets all the girls.

If I understand you correctly you're asking if guys in my school actually act like that. Well personally at my school no one looks like he does, and anyone who looks anything like him would be considered REALLY weird, but there are definitely people like that in the world, and yes there are people with the same personality as him, just not as strange an appearance. The appearance was used to exaggerate and distinguish his character from the rest.

She wasn't actually on a magazine cover with him, she's just infatuated with him because even tho he had sex with her and kicked her out of the car, it's the closest she's ever gotten to love, so she's in love and likes to call him her boyfriend. She's just fantasizing about making a band with him and becoming famous.

A lot of the scenes depict fantasy - what is going on in Tracey's fractured mind - not reality. The man with the horns is her fantasy - not real - just how she sees him.

I believe she was a girl at her school.
In the country dead bodies live in swamps and ditches and shallow graves. A man dumps the body of a girl in a ditch. The body rotts melts into slime. Flowers pop up where the body lies, seeds fly out of the flowers and a bee sucks the flowers and makes honey. Then the family of the girl buys the honey from the store. And the family eats the girl.
