X that Bridge
John Carpenter [JC] gets a skyload of choppers to fly over a giant crater in AriZOna in the '77 film STARMAN. The nasty, bad choppers attempt to dissuade the Starman from going anywhere and follow the falling-over couple into the crater, shooting at them with their metal fingers and aiming death bomb poopookaka at the fleshy escapees
The ATM machines seem to carry symbo-value, at least to my vogelled vision. Here in Starman a polygon despoiled ATM Temple harbour a police car. Quicksilver graces the top, a nice link by Jon Carpenter as the cop-chariot snoops out to chase the unwitting duo AriZOna bound.
Bound for what? Well, Hitting earth's atmosphere, after listening to the dulcet tones of Kurt Waldheim and Jimmy Carter on the Voyager Golden Disc, a starbeing comes to earth
The starbeing is Jeff Bridges [JB] who takes on the look of recently deceased husband of Karen Allen, which at first freaks her out. They get on after a while, as she hasn't slept with anyone in a year though the movie doesn't make this explicit
JB has plenty of powers , he has little spheres that pulsate light, bringing beings back to life, but if he don't mek it t' Crater [ Grail] he won't get home and will die. Thus the need for the '77 Ford Mustang Cobra , an orange+black whizzer that gets them near. The last car they use is a Cadillac, probably because they're so common. The Cobra force feeds one 77, as we are reminded by cop radio that the suspects 77 O&B Cobra is speeding along Highway 13 and a half, please pursue, don't touch them. The North Carolina cops try to shoot him as they hate cars like that
Here is the sweetie, parked skewiff, thus showing off its trim lines alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5179765247304285906" />
Somewhere in the film Jeff had watched VANISHING POINT and in mimicry of his human hosts slams one of the cars into an oil tanker, sorting out the problem with the roadblock. Luckily he has the spheres of life and he carries his lover out through the flames. Bit of a Daniel rezzer, flouncing through the flames with God on your side, who'd choose to Serve and Protect
The film graces us with one observing us and being drawn to it and perhaps deals our best chance for personal starbursting, gating. Observe a little more, criticize a little less which I shall work at, I need to. The film uses the 77 OZ rezo, and we get driven to AriZOna for the bridgeing ceremony in a meteor or giant 'bomb' crater. The word 'grail' comes from the word 'crater' which ritually opens up to planetary entity types proffering pinky-red beams. I wonder if JC tried to work off Valisian influences when making this. JB brings in the 2 pillars while Kate Allen links to Flash's surname, Kate Austin as mysterious child-bearer [ in this film JB seeds her] and KA as the Egyptian soul [ Ithink its the soul'
