Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

What a difference a day makes! The Straight Story print was FLAWLESS! I mean, really stunning. Probably from lack of use. This was by far the smallest crowd at any of the screenings. Just before the lights dimmed, I counted about 25 people in attendance. A few more came in after the film started, bu...

Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

I was going to hold off until after I'd seen Straight Story and do a final double recap, but last night's screening needs its own entry. When I first arrived, the lobby was packed. The Philadelphia Film Festival brings in its own fans, so I was expecting a capacity crowd. However, it really wasn't m...

Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

Just wanted to chime in that I've really been enjoying the recaps! Thanks! This final marathon run of four films started on Saturday with Mulholland Drive . Because these last four are part of the Philadelphia Film Festival, they're on a tight schedule with other screenings, so there's no additiona...

Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

Sorry, folks, no recap this week. I decided to skip the outdoor screening of The Elephant Man . My regular film going companion couldn't make it and I was less interested in seeing a DVD of the film being projected on the side of a building than I was in seeing it on film in the cinema. We'll resume...

Re: Interview with John Thorne, editor of Wrapped in Plastic

Just as Twin Peaks completely influenced me as a writer and creative artist, so did Wrapped in Plastic (along with the book "Full of Secrets") teach me that television and film were worthy of serious study like books. It had a profound impact on me when I first discovered WiP circa 1993 an...

Well, it's a big day for announcements. Death Waltz confirmed on Twitter the vinyls are coming in January.

Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

Another great night at the movies with Dune. First off, let me say again how great the staff of the Philadelphia Film Society has been. They are just a great group of people, legitimately excited to be showing all these great Lynch films. I'm excited for the Philadelphia Film Festival, which starts ...

Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

Another great showing this week. I had only seen Inland Empire once (maybe twice) before. Despite owning it, I've never been compelled to revisit it. It's a strange looking piece. Shot on standard definition digital video and then transferred to film, the projected image exists in this strange world...

Re: Lynch Film Retrospective in Philadelphia Sept/Oct

I'm glad folks are enjoying these write ups. I'll be back after tonight's screening of Inland Empire.

In the meantime, the Film Society has put up a video of David's talk at the Lost Highway screening:

Re: Complete Autographed Star Pics set hits ebay - ~$5,000

All blue markers? Weird, very weird. Very unlikely they were ever able to get everyone in a single place, but maybe these cards were sitting out on a table on set somewhere with a little sign that said "sign me". Someone should show a signed card (or pic of a signed card) to a few cast me...

Re: FWWM altered minorly after initial US theatrical release

Having just seen a film print, I can say it faded to black when Chet touched the ring.

It's possible but very unlikely.
