As an aspect of communication, the film seemed to me preoccupied with
getting people from here to there.  The roller skates in the opening
corridor.  The arrival on the beach in NZ and how to get off.  The
tortured journey from the beach to the Neill house.  Above all, the
many shuttlings back and forth between the Neill house and the Keitel
house.  The final boat trip taking Hunter and Keitel to town.
Another aspect would be the Neill character whom we mostly see
building fences or boxing Hunter in.
Yet another aspect: the several peepings.
