The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things (2004) [dir. Asia Argento]

Biospoilers
In Fictionalized America. Might be okay, might not: This film caught my eye early on because of the story it was based on. I have not yet seen the film, but i have a copy of the trailer. The kid in the story is severely abused and has recurring nightmares which are intended to be symbolic, and feature lots of red birds and red feathers. Well a CG version of one dream shows a parade of Northern Cardinal still lifes. They are truly red, would occur in the places the movie takes place and look real. Some dreams however have red crows. Despite the famous Blackfeet chief named Red Crow, and the actor Floyd Red Crow Westerman, there are no red crows of any species in nature. But the birds in the dream are quite clearly red and quite clearly crows. Now, in a dream anything goes as far as i'm concerned, but i'm hoping it doesn't lead folks to believe there are actually red crows.
