More eye connections made. Waiting outside of the PA/Doctor 2:2 room, my eyes wandered to the floor. I had seen the head shots pasted all over the ground many times, but only now did I see that they all had their eyes cut out. Very eerie. Also, in the PA (Lucia Chocarro) 1:1, before handing me the clipboard to get my name and signature, she inspected my eyes closely…
There was a wonderful moment with Andrea (Miranda Mac Letten) during the final orgy/ballroom scene. During the line dance, not only did she come directly at me and brush my face with her hand, but later on in the dance, she made eye contact with me, puffed out her cheeks, and exhaled as if to say “this again”. I laughed, visibly, I think, because she smiled back.
Badlands Jack (Sean Edwards) first loop was marvelous. The scene in the motel room was extra acrobatic and thrilling, as he came crashing down on the side table. I got chosen for the second 1:1, after he stared me down for a few seconds in front of his trailer and then stumbled towards me, causing me to awkwardly step back as I thought I was in his way. Having grabbed my arm, he brought me into his trailer and there he told me a story, his pocket knife running up and down my arm, around my throat—exhilarating. This one ended differently from a previous encounter I had had. Rather than ending with my confession, he told me that he needed a friend, but that I wasn’t allowed to stay with him in the dark. It was heartbreaking.
