* Max is a Troper. A former director, [[GenreSavvy he knows all the classic storytelling devices and clichés]]. He sees Norma and Joe as classic StarcrossedLovers having some BelligerentSexualTension, and works behind the scenes to stir it up and turn it into a real romance. Note the scene where he calls Joe to tell him that Norma has attempted suicide: he doesn't give him any details - doesn't even tell him ''if she's alive'' - guaranteeing that he'll come running to her side. He's constantly manipulating circumstances to get them together...because the narrative demands that they do.
