    Future (present?) cult classic. Gotta do a double bill of this and In the Mouth of Madness.

    My fourth watch and this feels...remarkably cogent? I can't fault the movie for making sense, but it's funny to think how strange and mystifying I found this my first time through. This is one of Lynch's most approachable films, really. It's just such a pleasure to watch the echoes between the two distinct halves of the film, especially those tense, enigmatic moments where they threaten to converge. And no matter how much you understand the movie, you're free to tug at any of its myriad threads and follow it into some uncharted territory. Still an overwhelming, emotional experience.

  • Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

    Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

    Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem has taught me three things:

    1. You can pick out a random word to be the subtitle of your movie and get away with it.

    2. No harm ever came from giving out military-grade night-vision goggles to a small child.

    3. It is possible to make Predators and Aliens ridiculously boring.

    Also, sample dialogue:

    "That's crazy, the government doesn't lie to people!"

    A singularly forgettable movie.

    Nicolas Cage is a man of his word. He said he was going to steal the Declaration of Independence, and that's exactly what he did.
