Re: This Is The Street

**The resoning behind the gnostic viewpoints about original sin, as well as the standard xian, briefly, is that self-awareness leads to a distinction between the Creator and the Created and the Creator doesn't like this,( being a jealous Creator). As far as I know gnostic sources aren`t accepted as...

Yes, that is also what I like in Inland Empire.

Re: This Is The Street

It doesn't sound like that to me because I clearly hear him saying, "I'm going out now." The more often I watch it the less I hear "I'm going out now." And what does she say before? Does she say "Is something here?"? And would be that fitting to the situation? Yesterda...

That is one possible conclusion. Another one would be that she anticipates things in the future. Or maybe there is a kind of source in the club sending something to Camilla.

Re: North Carolina accent?

Yes, she could easily be seen as from the rabbit warren, but I think "the brick house tucked back in the small woods" makes her sound like a strange being from a fairy tale invading Nikki's safe world. Yes, it could also be that she invents that she comes from there; and it does not exclu...

Re: Queen Kelly

The directors perhaps had to put more attention to what should be "said". So maybe there is a bigger weight on what is "said". not to mention that all who're starring are dead now :lol: Yes, I often think about that when I see animals in silent movies. For example, horses in Nosf...

Ah, yes, the scene with the whip. I guess that I was too fascinated by that looooooong hair of Gloria Swanson to draw parallels to IE.

I was a little bit surprised about the pentagram. It was interesting to see what effects were possible in that time.

Re: This Is The Street

Of course, in many varieties of gnosticism ( and it's not really so different in standard judaeo/xian dogma) self-awareness is the Original Sin. And do you know reasons for that? Why is self-awareness the Original Sin there? The Dern character probably sees the marketplace-version of herself. This ...

Yes, those are great art. But I only know not so many: Metropolis, Nosferatu and Queen Kelly, for example.

Re: Queen Kelly

i don't know if it's sue or nikki. which one do you think it is? I don`t know it neither. Tend to Nikki. But it could also be Sue, the monolog woman or Lost Girl. this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drEz3NArqdI made me thought about this scene. Will be able to watch it in a few days. it seems...

Re: This Is The Street

She is making fun of the woman at the beginning of the movie who was hypnotized and forced into prostitution. Or she is making fun of herself in an ill manner. Also that she laughs to the street girls in that way is quite sick. Probably "Dern2" sees herself in more trouble than she had ex...

What exactly reminds you on QK there and why? And are you sure that it is Sue whom we see there and not Nikki?
