comment Why name Bob after Robert Mapplethorpe in Bottle Rocket?
Sorry coleopterist - I think I blew this one. I did some more digging and think I must have misread the whole 'photographer' angle - there have been shows dedicated to his films, but not by Anderson himself. I'll put a link in the next comment that has a bit of info. - but at the end of the day I think my efforts were a bust :) Ah well.

Is it worth upgrading to an answer then? I thought my response might help shed some light on it, but seems a bit tenuous. And yes, having been to a couple of Mapplethorpe exhibitions myself, I can see how the choice of name could be a tad unusual :)

Didn't think my comment was answer-worthy. Perhaps someone else will dig up more concrete info.

I don't think we can read much more into it other than Anderson (being an exhibited photographer himself) is a fan of Mapplethorpe's work. He has been know to name his characters after artists and friends (Tennenbaum springs to mind).

comment Why is Carrie distraught while watching Saul's hearing before the Intelligence Committee
Perhaps it is a combination of her condition plus the memories of her affair with Brody and their ramifications that reduce her to this state.

I'll +1 you anyway as the revenge theme is a solid addendum to my answer. :)

Dredd makes a great point here. Elle had already proven she had little respect for tradition.
