Re: "It Was Red"

David Lynch did not say that anyone was Smithy.

Re: L.B.

So, if we ask the question, "Who is Smithy?" and we see Smithy's son, we know whose son he seems to be (not the Lucas character who can't procreate children), because there is only one logical answer: his other parent, his mother, Smithy, played by Karolina Gruszka, who returns to her own ...

Re: Where did the gun come from?

I'm still thinking about whether it's Nikki' s husband or Sue 's who is the figure that is given the gun. It seemed to me at first that surely it was Nikki 's, essentially one of the producers of OHIBT . That has, at least, the virtue of making sense. The point I've been trying to make in probably ...

Re: "It Was Red"

There is no Smithy and since Lucas' first name is Piotrek and he's credited with playing a character with that name, he can be called that. If you don't like the rooster, you need to take that up with David Lynch. It's already in the movie and I can't do anything about it.

Where did the gun come from?

At the séance, the man on the right who was questioning Piotrek gave him the gun, but where did he get it? Maybe there is no answer but it seems that there should have been one. If this man had been the one who turned into Suzie rather than to Jane, then Suzie, because of her name, her robe, and ir...

Re: "It Was Red"

At the shed: Piotrek walks toward the shed hesitatingly. Rooster walks by the shed. Piotrek knocks and Gordy opens the door. Piotrek says, "Gordy!" Gordy throws down his red cup. ....... When at the man at the séance says the sentence with Czerwone in it, right in front of him, shining in...

Re: MTTH: Buying a watch

The term "free will" doesn't mean anything to me.

Re: "It Was Red"

Another thought is that perhaps the first thing that "was red" was the red light bulb in Majchrzak's mouth "” because that was chosen without David Lynch's direct decision. He was told to pick one of three objects then improvise with it. So once it was there in the movie, DL may have begun...

No, that's the primary answer.

I think the various red lamps are mainly markers like the LB, to distinguish one part of the movie from another.

Re: L.B.

OK it could be a stamp too I guess. But I guess you are saying that we wouldn't get anywhere imagining how it was drawn on there but stamped we have that answered and can move on. Anyway, I agree with you that the actual meaning of the letters is irrelevant. So the only place to go in seeing why the...

Revised Scene List

A more purely descriptive list. I'm including MichaelPW's suggestions not to include the spotlight and to include the moon as a scene, but I think these are doubtful. Lynch said in one of the bonus features that the movie begins with a quiet sound followed by a loud sound, so for him, the movie begi...

Re: L.B.

It does not look like a stamp to me. It looks drawn on there, maybe with make up pencils.

Re: "It Was Red"

There seems to be a lot of red here: http://www.rooster.pl/en/lodz/ "It was red" was first said in the séance and connects to the question, "You work for someone?" From the looks of the decor of Rooster in Lodz, I guess that Gordy's plastic cup thrown on the ground came from the...

Re: L.B.

On the other hand, I do not believe that the street scene where the letters appear upturned from their usual position is of any significance; I believe that this is a rare Lynch blooper. :lol: I say this because those letters only appear for a few lightning-quick frames, and no viewer could ever be...

Re: L.B.

A while back we discussed LG and LB backwards. GL = Good Luck BL = Bad Luck But I think those ideas are just for amusement. In Lynch movies when attention is drawn to objects, it seems more to show when and where something is rather than something about the objects. E.g. the piano ashtray in Mulholl...
