Spotted: Elias smoking pot in the field

25 03 2008

A detail spotted in the movie: Elias in the “beautiful night” scene is holding a cigarette in his closed hands hiding the glow… Or is it a joint? Looked up in the script — IT IS. This explains Elias’ meditative mood and the line: Oh shit! Sometimes there’s things in my head… man. Grass does that to me, f***s me all up like a crazy Indian…”

I suppose this was cut from the movie as a result of arguments OS had with Dye about smoking dope in the jungle. It somehow shows Elias in a negative light. On the other hand, maybe grass gave him some supernatural abilities, like becoming super-sensitive to the surroundings… he was a crazy Indian after all. 🙂
