Maybe it’s all this spring weather we’re having here in Texas, but lately I’ve had plants on the brain. Which is why I keep noticing them in the movies I’m watching… What strikes me as particularly interesting is the way that films about outsiders integrate unusual plant life into the homes of the main characters. These are characters who defy the rules of their oppressive societies, go against the wishes of their employers, and spend their off hours engaged in illegal activities for the greater good. They barely have time to shower. But boy, do they have amazing plants in their apartments!
