Last Thing the Rabbit Saw September 24, 2010

A before and after still from “Red Rider’s Lament.”  A scene in which we see through the eyes of a rabbit taking its last breath.  Moments later the sky comes crashing down around the rider.  The rabbit is the proverbial albatross that sent the poor mariner on his damned journey to the ends of the earth.  In this case the action of murdering an innocent omen of good luck (rabbit or rabbit’s foot) sets the Rider’s world into motion through chaos, specifically the fury of Mother Nature.
