* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: TheMovie. Godfrey Reggio said that the entire experience was up to the viewer. For instance, after "The Grid", there's a lone patient (whose arm is the only visible part of her) whose blood IV has come out, and it waving desperately for someone to help. Is it a stark look at isolation, or a HeartwarmingMoment because a nurse comes to help her? Another shot is of a disheveled vagrant who seems to be a little mentally disturbed grinning at the few coins in his hand - is he happy at having some money to eat with, or is he pathetically deluded at the pittance in his hand?

** The haunting and ominous title track is sometimes used to convey TranquilFury.
*** Fits even more if you have a shot of someone [[DeathGlare glaring]], such as [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fluttershy]].

* OlderThanTheyThink: Many viewers think [[spoiler:the exploding rocket]] was the space shuttle ''Challenger'', which [[spoiler:was destroyed]] three years after this movie came out. [[spoiler:The explosion filmed was with an unmanned Navy Atlas rocket, about 20 years earlier.]]
