It was character names like 'Bill Smoke' and 'Boardman Mephi' (as in Mephistopheles) that sold it for me. Also, isn't "Ol' Georgie" a popular nickname for Satan?
While I agree that those are deliberate references to the Devil, it doesn't mean he was
the Devil. Given the thematic fabric of the film, all you can say for certain is that his characters were
to the Devil. I just don't think this is the kind of film where you should take everything so literally--because even the film itself doesn't do that.
Not affiliated with those
white knights. I'm the good kind.
I has a blag.
