Do you think?

I can't help but pondering whether the "enemy with a thousand hands" we're fighting seems inspired by the villainous Keyser Soze; mysterious, ominous, enigmatic, cunning & hiding in the shadows.

The original Manchurian Candidate would probably be a larger inspiration, though you could also say that The Usual Suspects would also share some thematic connections.

No, that woman is a man!

And the whole thing is done by the one-armed driving by the Grassy Knoll in a white van!

Seriously, how is the "invisible enemy" of Alliance influenced by the original Manchurian Candidate?


PS: John Frankenheimer is my master. And Ronin is the altar upon which I devote myself upon to :wink:

In many ways. :) The largest of which would be the behind the scenes puppeteering of world governments.

What about that loan shark, Miss Piggy, who latches on to his coattails like a leech to a dis-fingered 40 year old balding man who cuts his T-bone with much prejudice and too much sauce. And I ain't talkin' steak sauce neither.
