messy, trashy, melodramatic and incredibly good. this movie feels pretty different from anything else david lunch has put out but it still carries all of his trademark surrealism. i have to imagine if there was a Lynch-directed action film it wouldn’t look too much unlike Wild At Heart. looking forward to rewatching it in the future, what a fun film.
“The minute we left, we started going home. And we’re still going home. I’m still on my journey home. We loved you, World, but you did lousy things to us.”
“Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania” is a beautiful film documenting jonas mekas’ visit back to his home village of semeniškiai after almost 30 years of absence.
mekas’ video work is incredibly kinetic and experimental but possesses a serene fragility when combined with the film’s haunting soundtrack and mekas’ own spoken-word…
beautiful film, i feel like it's something i'm gonna have to rewatch pretty frequently to better flesh out how i feel about it. it's only fitting that a film about the life of a poet is as poetic as Color of Pomegranates. truth be told i wrestled a bit with the idea of just not providing a rating because this doesn't really feel like a movie that you can assign that sorta quantifiable measurement to. hm.
