The first thing that pops to mind after the recent shooting was to question whether or not the small Texas town where it happened could be anything like the other town was in THE WHITE RIBBON.

Because each time they interviewed a resident of the town, for example, they also seemed to keep saying the same thing about how they were all ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY, and how EVERYONE in it knew EVERYONE ELSE, which was also kind of CREEPY (since it was also making them sound a bit like the MOONIE type of CULT Members who all got married on the same day at the same time).

But as members of this so called BIG FAMILY, they also didn't seem to know very much about each individual member of that FAMILY.

If they did, then one would also think they'd know which family it was that had the 18 month old child.

And they'd probably also know the MOTHER in LAW of the KILLER was also a member who attended the church, and had received threatening TEXT messages from her PSYCOPATHIC son in law.

But no one seemed to recognize the name of the KILLER or his connection to the town???

Today on the news they also said the PASTOR of the church told the KILLER he didn't want him inside of his church anymore, which also makes it that much more strange that no one else in this supposedly close knit town didn't seem to know anything about who it was who did the shooting on the day that it happened.

So certain things that are said by the members of the town also don't seem to add up or make any more sense than some of the other things that were said and happened in THE WHITE RIBBON.

Anyhow CACHE is also my FAVORITE HANKE film.
