I'm watching Bloom for only the second time now... i must admit I was a bit overwhelmed when I saw it in the theater.

Looking at all the Icarus references on this site, I am surprised not to see a reference to this one. So in case it hasnt been noted...

The scene when the Curator reminds Penelope the top of the stairs that they are working with each other, has a a great big stained glass window showing icarus and the sun over her shoulder. He tells her her smile is the sun, and we "fallen men" need the sun. The next shot shows the broken statue of a winged figure at the bottom of the spiral stairs, with bloom looking up from nearly the bottom. What a wonderfully potent bit of foreshadowing, if one has already noticed the key of the Icarus lense.
