Asphixiation Debutante Ball

Images from The Virgin Suicides

Sorry for the quality of the photos, they were taken with a camera from the TV screen, which made them a bit jumpy, and the pale green filter in these scenes didn't come out well on the camera. I'm a bit old school. Still, you should definitely see the movie yourself, anyhow.

Pale green ices.

A spill at the plant
increased the phosphates in the lake...

..and produced a scum ofalgae so thick
that the swamp smell filled the air,...

..infiltrating the genteel mansions.

Debutantes cried over the misfortune
of coming out in a season...

..everyone would remember
for its bad smell.

The O'Conners, however,
came up with the ingenious solution...

..of making the theme oftheir daughter
Alice's debutante party "Asphyxiation".


  1. Man, I can't believe I still haven't seen this movie. Think I might need to set aside some time over Christmas...
