I watched, sometimes reluctantly, this movie last night. To me it was a twisted trip racing headlong into madness. Did anyone notice the numerous subliminal still shots during the blur of the woods while they were traveling on the train? I captured at least 6 images. They all were goulish images of our disturbed anti-heroin well before she hit her full on breakdown soon to come. As far as the childs backwards shoes; it explains the autopsy report describing "insignificant" feet deformaties. When defoe finds several pictures of Nick with his shoes on backwards, it becomes evident that "mom" had been losing her tenous grip on reality for quite sometime. When asked why she did that, she flippantly dismissed it as a one off "brain fart" or something. Furthermore, did the deformaty contribute to the toddlers loss of balance? Defoes look of horror as he view several snapshots suggest it very well may have been connected. It also became clear mom was neglegting her motherhood far longer than even he realized. One other comment regarding the "feel" of the movie, both audio and visual, reminded me very much of David Lynch's style. Had I not known better you could have fooled me. In conclusion, I think the take away here is that everything that she saw evil and horrible in "nature" was really what she saw in herself.

Difficult to watch, but rewarding. Don't fully understand the shoes on wrong feet.

OMG. What? Gratuitous and a terrible story line. So disappointing for so many reasons.
