Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
Midsummer Night's Dream Midsummer Night's Dream Midsummer Night's Dream
In this adaptation of Shakespeare's play, Michelle Pfeiffer is Titania, queen of the fairies and Kevin Kline is Nick Bottom, the man she turns into an ass, then falls in love with. But before that happens, when Bottom is in the woods with Titania and her fairies, we see a few fairies in the forest fooling around, skinny-dipping, playing with gramophone records, and attending to their queen. We see a fairy with two faces and a pitcher on her head leave something at what looks like a shrine in front of a pile of snakes. As the snakes rise up we see that they're the snakes that grow out of the head of Medusa. There is no explanation of why Medusa is there, or why she rose up, or what the fairy left. It's just part of the fairiy weirdness that happens in the woods, and means nothing in the play, but it gives me another version of Medusa for my collection.
