Art Metropole Window
Imagine a film. What you see is a sailboat on a river. Looking at the sailboat you know that implicit to the situation is a downstream waterfall. The approaching chaos has not yet registered to those upon the vessel.
In the opening sequence we watch an air freshener twirl like a disco ball from a rear view mirror. The nature of the vehicle remains unclarified while attention is split between an out of focus marina and drama in the parking lot.
The air freshener depicts a waterfall but smells like burnt hair. It is a hilarious novelty. Over the course of the film it will come up more than once in conversation.
