Bottcher is the left-most figure:
Those two women had absolutely no reason to be in the scene, and there’s no other nudity in the film, so this tiny bit of nudity was totally gratuitous. That director is our kind of guy.
(It’s also a very confusing continuity error. The killer is in the victim’s imagination in this scene, not actually there, so he/she should only be visible from the victim’s POV, not in a narrative shot looking over his/her shoulder. The director was smart enough to show that the two naked women never noticed a creepy killer two feet away. Obviously, if he had really been there, they would have been panicking. So the director got that detail right. My only quibble is that the shot should be from the victim’s POV.)
Well, OK. Maybe one more quibble: if you’re going to add nudity for no reason, at least make it good nudity.
By the way, I used to belong to a Killer Book Club. I remember it well. It was me, the late Janet McVee, the late Trevor Jones, the late …
Weird. Now that I think about it, they all died but me, so I never found out which member was the killer.
Not only that, they all died before I could glean their insights on Wuthering Heights.
