    My first encounter with Fellini. His eighth & a half contribution to filmdom and a breathtaking, one-of-a-kind experience. This tour de force of the professional & personal crisis as well as fantasies & formative memories of an Italian movie director who's trying to get his next project off the ground is a delirious, life-infused metamovie that's dramatically & artistically firing on all cylinders. And it's a magical marvel to behold how all the fragments & figments form an unforgettable film. Bravo!

    A classic, juvenile case of money well wasted at the theater.

    Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces


    Part of it interesting, part of it not so much. But obviously this is mandatory if you have seen everything Twin Peaks related up to that point.

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me


    Wow. This is fierce stuff and a both repulsive & fascinating descent into the final days of the infernal life of the central character of Twin Peaks: Laura Palmer embodied by the great, great Sheryl Lee.
    This is a must-see.

    I leave you with the extended version of Lynch's sleazy "The Pink Room".
