"What do I do for a living? I live for a living. When I moved out in the forest 35 years ago, people said "You can’t escape reality." I went TO reality. You’re living in a virtual reality. You don’t even know where your stuff comes from, don’t even know where your poop goes.
I live in nature where everything is connected, circular. The seasons are circular. The planet is circular…Do people live in circles today? No. They live in boxes. They wake up every morning in a box of their bedrooms because a box next to them started making beeping noises to tell them it was time to get up. They eat their breakfast out of a box and then they throw that box away into another box. Then they leave the box where they live and get into another box with wheels and drive to work, which is just another big box broken into little cubicle boxes where a bunch of people spend their days sitting and staring at the computer boxes in front of them. When the day is over, everyone gets into the box with wheels again and goes home to the house boxes and spends the evening staring at the television boxes for entertainment. They get their music from a box, they get their food from a box, they keep their clothing in a box, they live their lives in a box.”
Little boxes on the hillside..
From a Free Mason ring on his finger to the tattoos that reach from his neck to Hell, Detective Loki is my new favorite protagonist. I can sense what type of man he is. The tattoos were my last guess but I would suspect him to have served some amount of time, though most accurately in a juvenile home during a younger age. If seen closely his depiction of childhood was deemed in a parent-less environment, an orphanage. I accurately pulled this from the existence of his tattoos when he would approach people. In the scene when he goes to see Bob Taylor, his tattoos are exposed and his grimacing demeanor is out in the open purposely. Seen here as he turns to the side as he cackles to give the erratic, nervous Bob a sign to cooperate or be manhandled.
When he comes to meet the the parents his image is far different, having his neck and hands covered by his jacket and gloves. This shows his mind game, the amount of effort he puts into his job.
You can sense his frustration as he cracks the keyboard across the table as if the first outburst wasn’t enough. He’s in a constant battle with the institution, despite his flawless reputation in solving his cases, the Captain spits on his effort.
With a tic that constantly repeated itself, I could sense what was happening with Loki. From inside, there was so much information being processed, so many emotions being repressed, that it was the mind of a deft detective who would overload (much like a computers glitch) in the most minutest way possible. With his own demons hidden from us, I can sense he’s prepared to bring trouble to where he’s at as he aches for the closure of this case. By the time the movie is over, Loki is still a restless detective with the world racing through his mind. I hope this new bad-ass doesn’t bother to stop catching criminals. The state of Pennsylvania would be lucky to have this man in their legal system.
