Which character, or what, was Play With Fire meant to refer to? Although played with scene with the mother, I dont get it, although she was a strong character. Perhaps subtly refering to dabbling in religion....the inside of the cd shows a picture of the train conductor who took the snake, and whose girlfriend was being diddled.
He seemed to me the most potentially dangerous persona in the film.
Would appreciate your thoughts.
