I read (and of course I don't remember where; it couldhave been on here
somewhere, but I'll look around to verify) that they actually filmed
the sequence *in reverse* and then played it back forward.  That would
explain the jerky movements and the speech.

I almost wish they hadn't had the subtitles...although for clarity
sake.  Do you think Cooper saw them in his dream?

Yeah; he looked like he was supposed to look really old (as another poster
mentioned).  It was all kind of creepy.  I really hope it doesn't turn into
some satanic cult thing, cuz then I'll be too scared to watch and have
nightmares.  I'm such a wimp.
