Question: Several times in the movie, you see a solider bang a magazine against his helment as he reloads. Why do they do this?
Question: After the black and white ball, TC takes Katherine to his home for sex. While they are frolicking in his home the camera pans to a painting on the wall above them depicting a woman sitting at the bow of a sailboat with her dark hair blown back. Could anyone kindly tell me what the name of the painting is and also that of the artist?
Question: After Donnie has gone back to the start of the loop, he lets himself be hit by the jet engine, presumably to save Gretchen, Frank and everyone else whose life he screwed up in the alternate future. What I don't understand is, since he knows what's going to happen and can see the path (literally) in front of him, why doesn't he try to change it? If he knew what was coming he could save Gretchen without dying himself.
Question: What are the differences (specific scenes/shots) in the Japanese version of the movie that were left out or changed in the American release?
Question: Why is Valantine (grandpa) talking to that butterfly after Arnold "kills" Dimetra? Does he know the butterfly is a direct connection to Sebastian's (toymaker's) surveillance? If this is the explanation, it makes no sense, as he can watch everything. It's so confusing. Could someone please explain it to me?
Question: Quite simple really, is Pantoufle a real Kangaroo?
Question: There is a humorous scene in which we cut to a classroom and Beatrix's name is called, to which she responds she is present. I thought it was funny, but what was it's significance? Where was it from? Was it an homage shot, or just a joke?
Question: Do Rose and Cal ever sleep together? I've heard that they don't, but in one scene Cal says something like, "There's nothing I won't deny you if you don't deny me tonight," and we don't see how she responds. And in the scene where Cal blows up at her at breakfast, he says "You're my wife in practice if not yet in name, so you will honor me." That's pretty suggestive.
