Joelle and her obsession with film is also interesting as was Orin's obsession with viewing himself kicking the ball. Viewing the world through a lens serves as a filter and removes the videographer from being a participant of the experience and makes them an observer. It creates a safe distance or detachment from what is being experienced. Perhaps her veil serves a similar function? Or maybe it does just the opposite and allows her to experience things that her "transhuman beauty" would prevent her from doing. Not sure, could be either, could be both, just spit-balling here.

I do enjoy reading other peoples thoughts so thanks to everyone who has replied to this post.

Is there anything yet indicating the timing of Joelle donning the veil? If she is doing it because of her beauty and not some perhaps-acid-induced deformity, I wonder if it is connected to the film stuff she did with JOI, in that perhaps the infantile regression induced by the samizdat actually happened to someone while they were putting the film together, such that she feared the effects of her own beauty.

The filmography does not indicate she is veiled until The Night Wears a Sombrero, and before that point she was being cast, I'm guessing non-veiled, as a catatonia-inspiring vision.

I don't really want to clarify things because that would amount to a spoiler but I will say, since a thread has been made about her, that I adore Joelle.
