Re: Bluray Question

I think the general attitude here is far too negative. No, it isn't the definitive Lynch box set, and the first edition was flawed (as far as I know the distributor was very generous to send complete boxes as a replacement even if only a single disc was affected). BUT, it is definitely value for mon...

Re: David Lynch - "The Big Dream" Available July 16th 2013

David Lynch and Dean Hurley recently were guests at "Morning becomes Eclectic" (whose host helped the musical ambitions of Lynch and who once also did a Jocelyn Montgomery show):

I believe there was no real intention to promote the German events as broadly as possible. The Cologne event seems to have been very nice, with Lynch taking questions about his films and signing autographs for a completely sold out audience (some 1.000 people), mostly consisting of students. You'll ...

No, at least the (German) R2 discs are announced to include postcards as well.

The same question has been raised at Angelo Badalamenti's myspace site

As to non-musical influences, Lynch is possibly the influence #1 for independent bands.

Well, that's what Zizek would say about Nochimson's reading of Lynch. This concession must be made to the 'New Age' commentators (for instance, Martha P. Nochimson) Yes, that is exactly it. As for Michel Chion: He is first and foremost an admirer of David Lynch, I'm not claiming that is awful, but ...

No, sorry, I didn't want to "complain". You do raise a lot of interesting issues, and that's nice. It's just difficult to argue with the wealth of ideas (own or others') you bring up. Btw, I don't intend to have the final word on Chion / Nochimson, to my taste, both are 100% Lynch-admirers...

Sorry to be so honest, but your postings are far too vague and there are too many mistakes and worst of all you mix your own thoughts with someone else's throughout: "I was bored (not born) before I even began." (The Smiths) Why introduce Scorsese as someone whose films all deal with histo...

If I remember correctly, its origin is in the Rabbits series. I'll watch INLAND EMPIRE again to see if it appears in other contexts. My guess would be that it is mainly an aspect of creating a mood (I personally love that sound, it sounds typically (film-)American to my ears. I've recently heard tha...

Carnivale and Riget would possibly my number one picks, they simply succeed in every way possible: acting, storytelling, characters and the way humour is part of it all, not simply an addition. In my opinion, The X Files have moments of greatness, but sometimes I wonder if the people involved really...

I've been wondering what made my previous comment sound like an insult. And after re-reading it, I definitely did not want to say that you have to be stupid to not like the approach. I am truly sorry if that impression was caused. I mean: Nance's Pete Martell is definitely a likable character who gr...

I don't know if I've really gotten your point. In my opinon, you don't have to be a television-addicted to come to the conclusion that Jack Nance's life wasn't all "funny and sweet and rich in Lynchian goodness." If you know any better source to reveal more about Jack Nance either the acto...

To be honest, I expected INLAND EMPIRE to be David Lynch's fall from grace. Looking at the synopsis, I was led to believe it simply explored what Mulholland Dr. had before (as well as many other films.) But - surprise, surprise, I was wrong. In my opinion, figuring out the movie within the movie, se...

I couldn't disagree more. In my opinion, the documentary was very well done and insightful. But to come to this judgment, you have to realize it is about Jack Nance the living being not Nance the Lynch creature who funnily pronounces "percolator". And there really seems to be a lot to disc...
