The Handmaid's Tale Director Breaks Down the Funeral Scene | Vanity Fair


Barbara Lyon

Thank you for the interesting details that you explained. When I saw this episode the effects were spot on for me, however I personally would have liked some back story to explain how the handmaids knew the minute details of how to perform the funeral march. I finally worked out the problem (in my mind) by stopping to remind myself to remember that this story is a fantasy. Then I was able to enjoy the visual art,and sadness and mood of the shoot. A little like the players bursting into highly organized song and dance as in a musical. However I love being swept into the story and just let it take me on a creepy THIS COULD REALLY HAPPEN ride and for me thinking of these why's and how's breaks my concentration.

Interesting insight about the sprigs of pine on the coffins. I had thought that they used pine because Gilead would have seen flowers as too sensual/pretentious for a handmaid's funeral.

fascinating. The 'filmmaking' aspet of Handmaid's Tale (in addition to the story and the performances) is what makes this show so freakin great, better than just about anything on TV. I'd consider purchasing a blu-ray set just for more commenatary like this.

Until they about stood beside the coffins and they really spoke about the ones they had lost, I thought the Handmaids were going to be punished by dead for the crimes committed by other Handmaids. It made more sense to me at that time

Love this, much like the directors cut on DVD movies that you buy. Makes it all so interesting. I love this show and I think it's an important show, especially now. As difficult as it can be to watch at times, it needs to be watched. I wish it would just be available on many channels so that the people who really need to see it, do. Elizabeth Moss is a great actress and really brings June to life. Throughout everything June has been through, she never loses her humanity. She is a great heroine.

This show is so good. My mom is a Trump voter and I voted for Clinton, but we both love this show. Slowly, my mom is admitting that maybe it's not so great that minorities get shot by police for doing nothing wrong and that it would be wonderful if everyone had access to healthcare. Science fiction is such a powerful medium.

Amanda Smith that’s an EXTREMELY ignorant question and obvious answer: The people that align with Trump are the same people who believe in Blue Lives Matter and believe the media narrative and practices that those who are shot deserved it for one reason or another. Even more directly linked, Trump took away Obamacare, effecting any Americans and leaving them without coverage. Many many many Trump voters even will say they regret voting for him on that issue alone, because they can no longer get their pills for $10 or see the doctor for free.

I was traumatized by an evangelical upbringing and this show/book is terrifyingly cathartic and vindicating. It's too plausible and perfectly illustrates the inherently violent nature of Christian ideology, that is no better or worse than fundamentalist Islam, if that dreadful bronze age book is taken verbatim et literatim.

+Anna Robak aren't you just an example of OP's comment? For you to assume that a comment about how any Abrehamic religion can be toxic and dangerous if taken verbatim and make it about "Nuh uh, Muslims are wicked evil creatures" speak volumes.

Atomic Anchorite. Thank you. However, I should point out my philosophy of life is based on my Christian beliefs, and the concept of agape, which I see in the words of Mr Spock as the logical way for humanity to live. I think the problem has always been when religions become part of the state apparatus. State religious beliefs tend to become dogmatic, rather than leaving it up to the individual to decide his/her own beliefs.
