They didn't do em like that beforehand either.

I was obsessed with Twin Peaks. I used to hold the antennae for the whole hour of the show sometimes because our reception was iffy. At one point I was so into it I started calling Lynch / Frost studios and talking to their receptionist regularly about what was going on in the show and she'd tell me about little behind the scenes stuff. Her name was Gaye Pope (no joke). I don't know where I got the idea to start doing that.

I had been telling her for a while about how Bob scared the shit out of me, but how much I loved it. One night, I got a random call and the guy told me his name was Frank Silva, the actor who played Bob. I was ecstatic, as he was the coolest thing on planet Earth to me at the time. He told me David Lynch chose him for the role because he was locked in a costume room one day (he was a costume designer) and Lynch saw the surveillance tape of him prowling around the room trying to escape. Wikipedia says otherwise, but that's what he told me. A few weeks later, he sent me an autographed 8X10 head shot which I still have framed in my bedroom. I was saddened to hear when he died of AIDS.

I loved Twin Peaks. It exposed me to how much deeper and better things can be if an artist is given a platform to fully express their vision.

unfortunately for me, when twin peaks was on tv, i was 10/11, and didn't appreciate the type of art david lynch loves to emphasize in his shows and movies.

but cool story. good to hear hollywood actually gave you a call back.

not a single 10-20 minutes of a film has blown my mind like space odyssey, srsly

the whole beginning of civilization thing they do is just so phenomenal, creative and open minded, it's ridiculous. i watched it stoned the first time and never once watched it sober again

ok am going to watch the other parts when i get the chance. see where are movies like this?

imagine watching this short movie on the big screen. most likely 50% of the audience would leave halfway through the movie, because they would think it's boring, 20% would fall asleep, 25% would run out during the credits not really grasping the concept of the film, and 5% of the audience would sit throughout the whole credits just to watch in awe what type of movie it is.

someone explained it best when they said it's meant to be experienced not just watched. To be honest I still have not watched all of them at one sitting. But that's because I'm at home with a lot of options but I been a deep Lynch fan for 9 to 10 years now, if I went to a theater to see this... I would be in the 5% that would stay to the end. Look into The Straight Story by David Lynch, it's different than any of his other works, it's more heart felt than weird and disturbing like most of his movies are, to put it simple it stands out from all of his other works

trying to watch more David Lynch movies has been something on my movie list for awhile. Unfortunately, the only wide release film i've seen of his is "Mulhullond Drive", and i thought that movie was fantastic. Some people have recommended to me 'Eraserhead', 'The Elephant Man', 'Blue Velvet', and 'Inland Empire'. well, basically all his films.


'Cargo'



good movie. catch this movie if you like science-fiction meets action drama. the graphics are just amazing, the cinematography was spot on, and the movie flow was pretty solid for a science fiction film. the twist at the end of the movie was pretty good. one thing i felt was questionable was the ending of the film. i thought they just ran out of funds to make the movie, so they just threw something up.

other than that, i like it.

The blaring predictability of it did not even bother me so much as the utter cash-in on mental health issues. It was not a horror, it was not a thriller, it was just an overstylized and misunderstood exposition on reactive psychosis/repression. I expected a great deal more empathy from Scorcese, but the film reeked of somebody who only read about the source material in a book, rather than actually knowing somebody who has legitimately suffered.

I watched only half of it and never got back to finish it:[ I was kind of disappointed, normally I love works of the Coens, but this one, I dunno, maybe I'll try watching it again
