  • Eraserhead 1977

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Oct, 2014 13

    What it all comes down to and the magic touch that Lynch brings for me: I see things I've never seen before and the things that I've seen before, he shows me in a different way. I don't need to understand everything that goes on because, in its own way, there is a certain logic to every single thing happening onscreen. Eraserhead is stacked full of fantastic awe-inspiring images and sounds that, to me, embody cinema. This is what it's all about.


    Also, I had definitely not expected the title to play into things the way that it did.

  • Submarine 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Oct, 2014 4

    I had this one down as a quirky quirky film that would not be for me. But after watching and really liking The Double, I figured I'd give it a shot. Couldn't be happier that I did. It's fun, slightly off-kilter in the right ways and has a lot of heart. The soundtrack by Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner is really great and fits the film perfectly.

    Ayoade is beginning to look like the man.

    Pure fucking brilliance. Everything fucking works. Fucking humour, fucking emotions, fucking Ralph fucking Fiennes is the fucking best fucking ever.

    "You're an inanimate fuckin' object!"

    I cannot get over that line. It's so fucking good.
