    I just started to watch this movie again for the third or fourth time (please no comments on how you hate the movie and it's a waste of time), and I noticed another occurance of the "82" symbolism.

    Just as the suicide jump is about to take place, there is what appears to be electrical wire rolled up against the ledge, in a 8 and 2 pattern.

    Did anyone else notice this occurance?

    cheers!

    Josh, I noticed it as well, and I am 100% certain it was intended by PT Anderson. To me, the '8''2' arrangement of the hose was a deliberate reference to 8:2 used throughout the film.
    Talk about subtle [​IMG]
    Great movie by the way [​IMG]

    This topic has been brought up before. There are alot of occurances of the 8 and 2 combination throughout the film.

    This is from IMDB.com:
