Title: u couldnt see through the tears in youre eyes
Post by: HEX on September 27, 2005, 12:53:35 PM
i always noticed that the line in which MAX  explains that he switched the bodies he gives Noodles that "u couldnt see through the tears in youre eyes, that it wasnt me" line. so this brings up a question to my mind.

was MAX preasent when NOODLES sees THE BODY DOUBLE OF max  on the street?

or did he just say that assuming he was crying?



interesting thought...

Well, in the scene where Noodles is standing in the rain, he *wasn't* crying, was he? I think Max is just using poetic language to indicate that Noodles probably was in too much shock to be thinking clearly at that point......
