Just watched the awesome indie sci-fi/thriller "Sound of My Voice," and have questions about the ending, and the film itself. Massive spoilers inside.

So, I have this notion that Maggie is Peter's mother, but I can't really point to why, other than the vague bicycle scene at the end, and the fact that we hear her speak his name in a voice-over during that scene. That, and the fact that she was able to break through to him during that scene with the apple. But what did that final scene mean, where we see her once again standing by the side of the road wrapped in sheets? What was her timeline, with the little girl and all that?
Also: I am wondering if the name of the film is itself a clue, because early in the film we hear two voiceovers from a nameless narrator, giving us Peter and Lorna's backstories. Sounded a lot like Maggie's voice to me.
Finally, why face-down in a bathtub? What other clues and puzzles have I missed in this film?
