The big three.

  1. The “substance” of the film, i.e. the stuff of which it’s made: at moments it feels almost contemporary, at other moments it’s archaic. But the film itself never “talks” about this.
  2. Central relationship: R and D live together, “work” together, and yet don’t really communicate, never truly connect. What they do have to “say” to each other is mostly between the lines.
  3. The film within the film: R thinks he’s making a profound, articulate statement; in reality he doesn’t really know what he’s doing, and isn’t being skillful about it. It isn’t as profound as he thinks it is.
