I love how in the movie Heathers when Heather Chandler falls and breaks the glass table and on one side is a fashion magazine and on the other an informative magazine about depression and the bell jar. I live how this movie as almost purely symbolic and how that scene splits the teenagers life from surface to the deeper feelings.
Also my sister just came up with a theory about the movie. She thinks that everything revolves around the beginning lunchtime poll question. Like how if your life suddenly became great but you only had two days to enjoy it. She thinks that JD is the aliens (like with his creepy greetings and salutations is like an alien greeting or whatever) and after freeing Veronica from Heather Chandler only gives her a few days before he’s going to blow up her world.
