Before delving into his identity and how his development and interactions with family and friends growing up helped influence that, the movie reveals basic things about him that the viewer can piece together to come to conclusions as to why he is the way he is psychologically.

    It is very clear that this poem was carefully constructed, it was meant to be read meticulously.
