    Only from the mind of David Lynch. And with that, only he could pull off a twisted tale like this.  Dennis Hopper, sadistic, menacing, sick, and in his best role ever. Oddly, he was nominated for the Oscar not for this, but for Hoosiers.  
    Laura Dern at 18 was even good back then. 
    Another thought, I had no idea what the Anthrax song "Now It's Dark" was about. Now I do. 

    Don't you fucking look at me.

    It’s sweet, and obviously I didn’t like where it went at the end, but it’s a beautiful dog is man’s beat friend tale

    Confession: all I know about MacBeth is that it’s a Shakespeare play that I never read, so this is the first adaptation I am viewing. That said, I couldn’t really follow the plot by dialogue as I’m not well-versed in that vernacular. I will say I love the camera work and the acting, especially Marion Cotillard, who I just always find so breathtaking. I’m sure I will eventually see the Welles and maybe the Polanski versions, and definitely read the play so I can better understand this in depth.

    Nearly perfect, groundbreaking, classic.

    It’s charming, if not a bit silly. I loved Langella in this, though. Funny thing is, my therapist recommended this to me years ago and I never got around to it until now. I find nothing related to me or my issues (or the ones I had then) in this film, so I guess he just liked the movie enough to recommend
