>>64638455 About to watch this for the SECOND time. Wasn't very impressed the first time around but I really like some other Lynch films so I'll give it another chance. Anything to look out for? Spoilers don't matter, as you probably understand.
>>64641488 I didn't like it at first either. I've come around to the fact that it's a lot more textured and nuanced than I thought, specifically in how the two different parts interplay. I've found that it has a high rewatchability factor this way, and I think is how it was intended to be parsed. As you watch, try to think about why exactly Diane would be dreaming the first part o the movie. Why is Adam Kesher, for instance, made to be a literal cuckold? Why do their eyes interlock when she meets him, what emotional response does this give her, why does she suddenly flee? Even the odd executive coffee scene links back to the latter portion of the film - do you remember a shot of her making terrible Folgers? There's a lot to connect and it's fun to do so if you think of the film as a puzzle, particular a puzzle where two halves share many threads.
>>64644515 its not his best but its probably his msot meta-film which is cool because all of his stuff is pretty meta but IE basically maintains its integrity (in my opinion Mulholland Drive is a little too soapy at parts)
>>64641488 >Contained within the original DVD release is a card titled "David Lynch's 10 Clues to Unlocking This Thriller". The clues are:
>1. Pay particular attention in the beginning of the film: At least two clues are revealed before the credits. >2. Notice appearances of the red lampshade. >3. Can you hear the title of the film that Adam Kesher is auditioning actresses for? Is it mentioned again? >4. An accident is a terrible event—notice the location of the accident. >5. Who gives a key, and why? >6. Notice the robe, the ashtray, the coffee cup. >7. What is felt, realized and gathered at the Club Silencio? >8. Did talent alone help Camilla? >9. Note the occurrences surrounding the man behind Winkie's. >10. Where is Aunt Ruth?
>>64644515 Lynch is an artist whose MO lies in the interpretive. And IE I've found myself spending the most time trying to interpret. That enough seems like reason for me to consider it his best effort, but:.
I love the DV. I think the grainy quality fits in line with Lynch's general aesthetic sense, especially those of his paintings. It's clear he was using the camera well; for instance, the fact you can't see with clarity the faces of the Rabbits only makes them more sinister. It's his most experimental film, visually, almost every shot is doing something new.
The acting is brilliant. Laura Dern really sells the reality of persona shift. But everyone in it is really great, and there's a nice variety of acting going on. For instance, the opening scene with the new neighbor; Lynch went back to the calculated movements he had Jack Nance do in Eraserhead, but applied it to Zabriskie's face. I've never seen such precise, timed choreography and intention in facial movements.
And then there's the music. It's my favorite score of any of his films, as much as I like Badalementi. It also seems to be the most personal to him, since he scored (and sang) and selected all the songs for it.
And lastly there's the meta quality. I wouldn't say it particularly 'shares a universe,' but it has so many connection to his other films (Lara Elena Harring and Naomi Watts playing against eachother, but hidden, the Log sawing at the end, the Rabbits, Dern in her Blue Velvet dress, etc.) and they're all odd, abstract connections. The film feels like a real, present nexus point, which fits so in line with the progression of a woman walking through an absurd shifting place, as if she's walking through Lynch's films.
As for the themes and 'plot,' I could write several essays-worth, and have, but the most important thing is how much of a shift in mood-state the film puts me in. Very transportational. I always feel like I've woken up from something after it's over and the lights click on.
>>64644627 I own 1-4 and even Origins and have played 1-3 over countless times. I love them because they're tedious (in a good way) and feel like you're playing through a Lynch movie. Which makes sense, since they've confirmed that they're inspired by him (and Jodorowsky, Team Silent was based).
>>64639555 Pretty much how I feel about it. I enjoy parts of the film, but much prefer Lost Highway for what it was. Lynch is pretty hit-or-miss for me, and Mulholland Dr. is somewhere in-between what I love and hate about him.
