The most quietly chilling part of “Pearl” is when Mitzy tells Pearl to go ahead of her for the audition. In the second, it seems to be like Mitzy is genuinely too nervous, or she’s attempting to be good. But if Mitzy had auditioned first, if she hadn’t requested Pearl to alter spots collectively along with her, Pearl would’ve seen her strolling out rejected. When Mitzy later says she didn’t get the half, Pearl would know she isn’t lying. But because of Pearl goes first and the casting directors level out wanting a blonde woman, Pearl convinces herself Mitzy purchased the half, even after Mitzy denies it. As she tries to depart Pearl’s residence, you presumably can see the gears working in Pearl’s head: if she’s lying about getting the half, she’s almost certainly lying when she says she’ll protect quiet about all of Pearl’s murders.
When rewatching “Carrie,” we won’t help nonetheless on a regular basis hope points will find yourself in one other means, that presumably this time Chris Hargensen (Nancy Allen) will once more out of the prank on the ultimate second. Watching “Pearl” — notably with the foreknowledge “X” presents us — creates the similar futile feeling: though everyone knows they won’t, we hope the casting directors will accept Pearl. On rewatch we hope that presumably this time the projectionist will merely let Pearl stroll home by herself, or presumably Mitzy won’t ask Pearl to take her place in line.
It’s painful to have a look at these characters unknowingly put their lives in danger in a misguided try to be good, though it’s wise. After all, Pearl and Carrie are characters who seems helpless and harmless from the pores and skin attempting in; Sue and Mitzy try and be good to her because of they want to be good people, not because of they’re afraid for his or her very personal safety.
