    I agree. It's dub not sub for me.

    L'Amour l'apres midi - great movie from Eric Rohmer's Six Moral Tales. Best I've watched so far from the cycle.

    I'm going to keep going on my David Lynch streak today and watch The Elephant Man, then probably watch Mulholland Drive again....I tried watching it when I was really drunk a few days ago but that failed, so I need to make up for that. Fahrenheit 451 is next on my list.

    Check Wild at Heart and Lost Highway--Lynch's two best films (I think).


    DVD: Sam Mendes' Revolutionary Road with DiCaprio and Winslet. Good visually, but story sux.

    Eyes Wide Shut.
    Well I tried but couldn't watch all of it. I gave up when there was about half an hour left.
    It was too weird in the bad way. Not to mention that the plot wasn't going anywhere and it was getting on my nerves.
    And now for something completely different.

    Fabuleaux of Amélie Poulain. Which is the movie with my favourite songs like "Comptine d'un autre été" and some others. The movie Plot was really good. It Introduces a Young Lady that drinks to much Liquors and Champagne.

    OMG! It's one of the best films ever! There is a fantastic "explanation/false explanation" scene and the last line is priceless. There are so many themes to this film: the decadence of the aristocracy, the incompatibility of marriage and sexual desire. Plus, the main mystery plot is gripping! Watch it again and watch it properly!

    If you are expecting an orgy you will be disappointed. The film will show you your own decadent desires as it did mine!

    I prefer Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire, and Blue Velvert personally, but I did like Wild at Heart. Lost Highway really disappointed me, however. Eraserhead is better.

    Great film, one of my favourites .
    You describe it in a quite funny way.

    Well I guess I could try to watch it till the end but for me it just seemed like it went on forever.

    (Yes I did...)

    Is it? Really..?
    The plot didn't grip me at all for some reason.
    I think I'm curious now about the end and I might get back to it.

    Was Inland Empire any good?



    Big Kubrick fan going back to 2001: A Space Oddyssey which I saw in the theatre in 1969.

    I think Barry Lyndon and A Clockwork Orange are my favourites.

    Yes, it was excellent. By far Laura Dern's best performance. And it's typical Lynch, very strange and non-linear.

    This is a phenomenal movie. I liked the entire cycle anyway, but you're right, this is the best one.
