Travelling Salesman (2012)|
In an unlit dream sequence, a figure wearing a white facemask questions Dr. Tim Horton in a distorted voice.
Mask: "Have you anything else?"
Horton: "I do. I'm sorry, I have.... I do. No!"
The menacing figure then strikes Dr Horton to the ground.
Mask: "Have you a sign? Have you a sign?
Horton: "Right angles, horizontals, and perpendiculars!"
Mask: "Illusions. Binding yourself under no less penalty than that of having your body severed in twain."
Horton: "No, no, not an obligation!"
Mask: "Thou was taken thence, and [unintelligble] knowledge." [00:55:50]
This dialogue is a burlesque of ritual found in many nineteenth century masonic exposures. Considering the otherwise intellectual and philosophical depth of the script, the introduction of pseudo-masonic ritual is incongruous. The introduction of the all-seeing eye in a triangle as a watermark on presidential stationery is also gratuitous. [00:74:40]
