Ok After the Carrie reference last year...i find another one it was The phantom of the paradise (another Brian's movie) and i thought i could look for other brian De palma movies....and here's what i find...Obsession...you should watch the trailer if you don't know the movie it could be pretty similar to ben's storyline with Annie/Juliet...or maybe Annie/Kate...

Can you clue us in on the specific connection you are making to PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE?
There was already a thread with connections to Phantom of the Opera in general.
And SPOILER on OBSESSION... It turns out the man falls in love with a "reincarnation" of his late wife, that turns out to be...
So we don't know yet if that's what's going to turn out or not...

I think the best thing to do will be for you to see the phantom of the paradise..;because my english is very bad so it's hard for me to explain but i'm gonna try...it's a sort of 70's version of the phantom of the opera...it's a brian de palma movie.
The movie is all about music from the 70's (we always hear that kind of music in lost, and charlie was composer) there's of course the guy whose supposed to be the phantom Winslow, he's a composer and plays piano (like jack and charlie), the girl he loves who is a singer Phoenix and the guy named Swan (swan station) who doesn't age (like richard in lost) because he sold his heart to the devil (the devil is appearing to him when he was about to commit suicide (like locke, desmond,radzinsky)...the devil's form was himself in a mirror) , Swan marry Phoenix. Swan is very well known in the world of the music his society is named Death record....the sigle is a dead bird (like the ones we saw in mobisode Room 23).
At one point in the movie we hear Good vibrations, and in the beginning they are talking about xanadu and disneyland(we had a reference to xanadu in eggtown and to good vibration in the season 3 finale). Swan is taking drugs (like charlie...)
Swan stole Winslow's music ...Winslow goes to jail (looks like azkaban...seems to be on an island) they cut his teeth in jail (bernard is a dentist), he has an accident and his face is...you know like the phantom of the opera...so he starts wearing a mask (there's planty of masks in Ben's house/ben's multiple identity and lies suggests that he's wearing a mask...psychologically) ...and starts working for Swan after the incident his voice left (like Locke and juliet when they arrived on the island) with computers Swan gives him a new voice.
And i read somewhere that the phantom was inspired by Dark vador and i think it's true because there's really something there... and we all know that our beloved scenarists love Star wars.
And there's also registers who look like dharma they are black and white.
There's a group whose name is "juicy fruits" (orange juice! lol)
You should see the movie he's entirely on youtube in pieces...(and lost or not it's a great movie!)
here's the first piece:
Talking about Obession...i have an idea what if Juliet was ben's daughter...it would explain the "you're mine" like i said in another thread...and it would also explain why she looks like her...if her is ben's mother it's her grand mom..;and if her is Annie it's possibly her mother...
