Aside: Living It Up

Why didn't I die?

The movie-turned-morality-play may be incredibly disjointed at the end--and far too on the nose for my taste--but this sequence is jarringly sober. The lighting (stark and unhappy), set design (nasty motel), costume (it's still unzipped), hair (violently tussled), and the scene in the hospital that follows are spot on from a story-telling standpoint. This line of dialog is killer: "I lived it up. Why didn't I die?"
