'Carne'/'I Stand Alone' Reference on 'The Wire'?
Is there a reference to the Gaspar Noe film "Carne" in episode 2.4 of the HBO series "The Wire"? Towards the end of the episode, right before the confrontation with Omar, Johnny is recounting this story to Bubbles that seems very similar to the story of "Carne". I haven't seen Carne, but it seems very similar to the plot synopsis given at the beginning of the sequel, "I Stand Alone". Admittedly, a random reference to a obscure french film seems odd for "The Wire"...so I was wondering if anyone else had noticed this or has any further information. Below is Johnny's dialogue:
"Him and this lady have this daughter. The daughter is born a mute. The wife doesn't like that at all, so she breaks out. So this guy's raising his daughter, she has her period...she freaks out, goes to him, he thinks she was raped..."
