P.C.A.T. - fantastic!! I love the Schroedinger connection. Great stuff. I was originally in the camp of disfigured, then I was leaning toward not, now I'm perfectly happy to leave it ambiguous/both.

Also, Notkin says that her face was blocked out, but again that's not something that anyone else has said, and not something (I think) that anyone could even know, certainly Joelle wouldn't know if that was true or not.


And in fact, Joelle thinks to herself early on (during the scene where she attempts suicide) that she was, in fact, unveiled during the film.


In the Brief-Interviews-esque scene where Joelle is describing The Entertainment, I can't remember if she explicitly states that she was or wasn't veiled, but she impresses the point that this is inconsequential because you most likely can't see her face anyway, given that JOI was using some strange snail-eyestalk of a camera* that was producing some weird optics. So what Molly says about her face being blocked out (or otherwise unseen) could be true.

* I'm not recalling every detail but I think this is what she was describing.
