In 1993, in Hollywood, California, the addicted in heroin mother of two children is a decadent ventriloquist that can not find work anymore. When she overdoses and dies, the siblings Norbert and Angelina are sent to a foster house with their dummy. Later they are sent to their uncle's house; the man sexually abuses Angelina and the dummy kills him. Years later, Norbert (who can't speak) and his seventeen year-old alcoholic sister Angelina [Angel, Jolie is another victim] are living on the streets; when the dummy slaughters a boy, Norbert is accused and arrested by the police and sent to an asylum with his dummy. Later Angelina decides to release her brother and finds a woman in order to give an offspring to her family. She breaks into the institution, kills the male nurse and Norbert escapes. When they meet Robin on the road, Angelina decides that the teenager will be the mother of her nephew and they abduct the girl.
... that description isn't the best, here is another (from wiki) illustrating the themes of incest/multi-generational MK...
Two teenage orphans and their living killer dummy make a path of death and blood on their way to Las Vegas to make it big. All the while, the sister Angelina proves to be much more harm than the dummy. The three of them kidnap a girl named Robin [bird] so that the brother Norbert can rape her and continue the family bloodline. Norbert fails to do this, but instead takes part in incest with Angelina. The movie ends with Robin escaping and Angelina killing Norbert. After this, Angelina goes into a depressed state until realizing that she is pregnant with Norbert's child. She has the baby in a motel room, where the final moments reveal that Angelina had given birth to Dummy's child.
Dead Silence and Saw (to a lesser extent); please see Elluminati for info on the below MK'd killer (images from there), he killed 5 people on Valentines day last year. I have posted on ventriloquists I suspect as being involved in MK like Paul Winchell.
"Magic tells the story of Charles "Corky" Withers (Hopkins), a man that has just failed his first attempt at professional magic. His mentor says that he needs to have a better show business personality. A year later Corky comes back as a ventriloquist with a foul-mouthed dummy named Fats. His agent Ben Greene (Burgess Meredith) is on the verge of signing Corky on for his own television show, but Corky bails out for the Catskills, claiming to be afraid of success. In truth he doesn't want to take the required psychological testing because doctors might find out that he suffers from multiple personality disorder, and that he hears Fats talking to him."Standard MK themes in the below trailers, also note Anthony Hopkins jumper has a line of black/white checker pattern as his alter tells him to do something he shouldn't (second trailer is longer showing more MK symbolism, mirror [I assume it is shattered/fractured at some point in the film] etc). I'm sure if you watched the whole film through there would be lots worth noting, link to part 1.
"The trailer for this film was pulled from TV due to calls from parents who claimed that it gave their children nightmares. The trailer in question is less than 30 seconds in length. It features Fats reciting the tagline, after which his eyeballs roll into the back of his head. This is followed by a cast reading, then Fats opens his eyes and gazes to his left." That trailer is below, we can surmise that taglines like these are often designed to be used as triggers.
"Aging screenwriter Felix Bonhoeffer has lived his life in two states of existence: in reality and his own interior world. While working on a murder mystery script, and unaware that his brain is on the verge of implosion, Felix is baffled when his characters start to appear in his life, and vice versa."
Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks) and Anthony Hopkins are both given the treatment [note Hopkins is green and Kyle is purple; the kind of thing I just posted on] in this one. He was also in Lynch's Elephant Man, with themes of dehumanization.
Playing presidential puppet/mythological hate-figure Nixon.
This is a nice little poster for 'Shortcut to Happiness', note the red shoes/devil's tail. Also below is his 'Mask of Zorro' poster.
Fracture features a lot of fractured mind symbolism, as you'd expect. The actual definition of 'fracture' is very much MK related (stating the obvious I know):"A fracture is the (local) separation of an object or material into two, or more, pieces under the action of stress." Which you can obviously relate to psychological fracturing (splitting/compartmentalization/shattering/fragmenting/etc [all are related to dissociation]) of the mind which occurs into parts under the action of stress/trauma. Remember he played a ventriloquist with MPD/DID, which is a disorder where the mind is split into dissociated parts (through the process of extreme dissociation as a result of trauma).
Instinct contains MK themes of abuse in mental asylums; hence the symbolic posters (also note in the below MPD poster, one eye/half face covered by hair + the eye colours [one is blue, the other you can see is red it looks like; symbolizing opposite/polarizing personalities, like a calm peaceful one and an angry violent one]).
Freejack looks very painful to watch; note the grid + split mind symbolism [Emilio Estevez is from the Sheen Jesuit family].
And of course (I'm not that familiar with his films so I've probably missed a lot of relevant roles) his role as Hannibal Lecter is a standard serial killer (so programmed, traumatized as a kid and such [see Hannibal Rising; in his traumatized/dissociative/suggestible state he witnesses murder and cannibalism: monkey see, monkey do]), Red Dragon's below tagline is very true.
I posted on the silence of the lambs MK posters in this Salvador Dali post. All of the various posters (above one, split mind, note the colours similar theme to Instinct poster) featured Salvador Dali's skull made out of nude women photographs as the head of a moth (closely related to the butterfly, kind of insect [along with spiders/snakes/etc] that could be used in trauma [see Christina Aguilera's video 'Stronger' in this post for more; which is amazingly blatant MK, even featuring the above Fracture poster style Christina's one eye through a hole in fractured glass at the end]).
I had originally planned on putting a couple more MK/incest/abuse movies (I've found it a little strange how really blatant they are all getting) I'd seen recently up in this post but no time (the ventriloquist/MPD 'Magic' film was an unexpected find leading me down this Hopkins alley; probably could have done without the whole God TV), have to do that in a separate post quickly tomorrow (need to start the second Disney part too).
