Jack questions God by saying :
Where were you? You let a boy die, You let anything happen. Why should I be good,when you aren't?
The themes explored,the question posed, the innocence shown, the beauty of nature.
A spiritual experience for me, still my fav of all time.
No one can imagine what it means to me.
our educational system tells us
that we can all be
it hasn't told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.
or the terror of one person
aching in one place
This quote by Bukowski perfectly sums up the film.
Lynch creates compassion for a man, a slave. The dialogues make emotional and Sir Anthony Hopkins nails the role.
This isn't just a weird film.
It is a Lynch film that introduced a well written surreal cinema.
