Re: Last Book You Read

I read Alain Robbe-Grillet's In the Labyrinth in finnish translation. Now that was something similar like Lynch films. He wrote it just before he did the script to The Last Year at Marienbad and it was very similar in style. I'm still not sure what really happened in the very end, was the painting e...

Re: Last Film You Watched

Little while ago I saw Cronenberg's History of Violence, and I have to say that I really loved it! Maybe his best film in my books, better than Dead Ringers even... I also like his older, more bizarre stuff but this film just had so much clear thought in it. And it was entertaining (and sex scene th...

Re: Last Book You Read

I just read Nabokov's "The Eye" and it was great little book. Nabokov's language is pure poetry to me. Even the finnish translation works like a charm. It is almost baroque stuff but I like it, somehow it fits me like a glove. Not the greatest mystery but really funny stuff. Reminds me als...

Re: Fire Walk With Me - First impressions

I watched FWWM again some time ago and boy, do I love this film! I could even say that it is my favourite Lynch once again. Maybe the fact that I also watched TP before it affected to this. This film is way darker than Twin Peaks, but it fits to that world very well IMO. It's melancholy gives new an...

Re: Fire Walk With Me - First impressions

Yeah, Human Germ! Harry Dean Stanton has some strange transylvanian thing going on... he was also in Ridley Scott's original Alien from 77-78 and looked just the same. And last time I saw him in Lynch's INLAND EMPIRE and still the same. Spooky! BTW, I really like him a lot. He has warmth. He had a l...

Re: Music

Well, the basis of this post is a lie as I am not hearing any music while typing. But still I would like to say that if there are gentle gods in music, one of them is truly Mark Hollis! His last two albums with Talk Talk (Spirit of Eden and Laughingstock) are just beyond words! And of course his sel...

Re: Last Film You Watched

Hey you student of Buck! ;)

If you are watching IE then drop everything else and really give it the space it needs! It is the most mindblowing film Lynch has ever done! It is just plain hard!

Re: Possible explanation (interpretation)

Yes, you are right. What is Lynch's idea about schizophrenia, that's all that matters :)

Re: Possible explanation (interpretation)

Yes, Annie, it is almost funny how often in fiction or in common conversations people combine schizophrenia with multiple personality disorder. I am no psychologist but my old friend "became" schizoprhenic when he was 18 and I get to see that thing forming (not understanding what the hell ...

Re: Last Film You Watched

I just watched Kieslowski's Three colors: Blue first time in many years and it was still as beautiful as ever. It is very straight forward moving film but still haunting. And now that it's Europe ideology isn't so acute, I can watch it in a different light. It was refreshing. And Human germ, have yo...

Re: Firewalking

Well, it would put the whole theme in quite different light ;) I mean if it would really mean:" firewalk with me". In other words, take a leap of faith to hot stones/coals and walk fast so you don't really feel anything, but it looks fancy...

Re: Last Film You Watched

Hey human germ ;) I gather you are talking about this recent remake of The Wicker Man ? I haven't seen it but I suggest to check out the original one from the seventies, it is bloody marvelous! (well, of course you now know the plot and all but still). It has gorgeous 70s british thing going on, pag...

Re: First time viewer

Just watched the film, I have mixed opinions though. While it was a decent film, it just didn't really feel much like the TV show (I know that it's a feature film, but it just didn't retain some of the things that made the show great), and it wasn't helped by the absence of characters and the fact ...

Re: First time viewer

GREAT! And I've noticed that even if the end is hyped around the net (I've done that to my friends too) it still surprises. It is just something completely unique. I have to say that to this day I haven't seen any single TV episode that could rival this one. There are some really great TV series aro...

Re: Last Film You Watched

Yeah, Zabriskie Point isn't nowhere near Blowup on intellectual level but man if it's not one of the greatest cinematographic trips ever. And Pink Floyd on top of that! I just love that film as a huge music video. Some scenes with aeroplane (even though there is some too obvious Hitchcock references...
