Interview with Snowpiercer costume designer Catherine George.

HelloTailor: When you were creating the look for each of the main characters, how much input did the actors have? I read an interview with Tilda Swinton where she mentioned you visiting her house to discuss what her character would look like, so I’d be really interested to hear more about that. 

Also, I was wondering if she was intentionally designed to look slightly like Ayn Rand, which is a comparison I’ve heard from a few people already.

Catherine George: In Tilda’s case, Mason’s look was so drastically different that we needed to have clothes and prosthetics made in advance in order to camera test. So we travelled to Scotland with a couple of suitcases of clothes, wigs, glasses and teeth and really had fun with the wardrobe, all while Tilda’s fish pie was baking, and we also got to enjoy the Scottish countryside.
I had collected pictures of dictators wearing elaborate uniforms and crazy hand-made medals. I hadn’t looked at Ayn Rand specifically but I had collected some images of old ladies from that period who would wear their fur and look down their noses at people who were less better off, a bit like Thatcher. But now people are mentioning it, there are similarities to Ayn Rand.

Snowpiercer is a post-apocalyptic movie about people who are obsessed with avoiding a repeat apocalypse in their ever-shrinking new world. They are hanging by their fingertips from the precipice of yet another disaster.

It’s also a story about breaking points, and when Curtis and Yona reach that final moment at the front of the train, we learn that everyone’s worst fear is little more than a fairytale. No one had even bothered to check whether the outside world was habitable again. 

The conclusive realisation isn’t that Curtis has been tricked by Gilliam all along, but that there’s no point in attempting to fight the system on its own terms (i.e. by Getting To The Front Of The Train). The only people who recognise the need for true revolution are Namgoong Minsu and Yona. And since this post has already careened into the territory of obnoxious undergrad political essays, I may as well describe Namgoong and Yona as what they are: Representatives of the counterculture and the marginalised. The prophets who have become reliant on mind-altering drugs because it’s better than facing up to the truth that only they can see.

 The fascinating dystopia of SNOWPIERCER.
