    • Cassandra has set up in her lair an old-fashioned movie projector, and is watching a movie of herself when she was younger and more beautiful (and had an actual body). This may be an allusion to the movie "Sunset Boulevard" (1950, dir. Billy Wilder), in which one-time silent film star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) uses a movie projector to show the films in which she appeared and exults over her own beauty and talent.
