I found it disappointing that the casting of two actresses for one role was done to get around a problem in filming and not as an intentional statement. It starts with the "2-girls-1-character" hitch, but it continues on and on with the sack, with Piccoli's voice impossibly tacked on to Rey's body, with terrorists (whose entire modus operandi is to disrupt the normal and strike fear into a populace's soul in places where fear shouldn't be felt), with more and more bizarre camera movements.
