    Wild at Heart

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    β€œIf you’re truly wild at heart, you’ll fight for your dreams. Don’t turn away from love, Sailor. Don’t turn away from love.”

    All killer, no filler. An over-the-top, dynamic, surreal, stylish, sordid, sexy, violent, hilarious, and profound film about love. Lula + Sailor forever.

    The pacing, editing, and cinematography are some of the best I’ve seen in Lynch’s films, the soundtrack is perfectly eccentric, and the performances are truly β€œwild at heart and weird on top”, as is most of…

    Twin Peaks: The Return

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Absolutely consuming. The end of the universe tangled up in a visual/auditory puzzle box of symbols, archetypes, and cliches we know to give us a false sense of security as we try and figure things out...but all of that is just an illusion to cover the pit of constantly encroaching darkness, unexpected moments, unknowable things, and seductive evil that lies behind every red curtain.

    There were so many times during this experience that I was unexpectedly forced into emotional overdrive…

    Dune

    What I Loved:
    - The score. I usually can’t get into Hans Zimmer’s overblown music as much as others can, but here it worked incredibly well, with lots of variety thrown in for good measure, while still being intense and droning and bassy. Love the vocal stuff and the ancient-sounding drums.
    - The sound. Paired well with Hans Zimmer’s score and feels strange and looming.
    - It was pretty to look at. A few of the…

    Ghostbusters: Afterlife

    Ghostbusters: AfterlifeΒ is a good time, until the last stretch, when it completely falls apart in a nostalgia-drowned self-referential cesspool of ectoplasm.

    Even still, I feel I only dig this so much because it’s the Ghostbusters. I’ll even admit I’m one of the people who at least enjoyed the controversial 2016 Paul Feig directed all-female Ghostbusters take, so this looked like a pleasant surprise when the trailer dropped β€” more Ghostbusters!!! Of course though, it’s not really that much better than…

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    An idiosyncratic, enigmatic, melodramatic, heartbreaking, insightful, droll dreamland, deeply influenced by noir, classic Hollywood tropes, and surrealism.

    On my third watch, Mulholland Drive hasn’tΒ lost any of it’s mysterious charisma β€” it remains a well-paced, consistently entertaining watch, and continues to reveal different layers upon every viewing. I’m not sure how Lynch would’ve played out the TV show, but what he did with the pilot episode he had and how he expanded it to fill just a feature film is certainly…

  • Inland Empire

    Inland Empire

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    What a vision β€” holy fucking shit David Lynch. A fog of deliriously genius subconscious.

    After two viewings only a day apart, I’m still completely intoxicated by the effects of this movie. Inland EmpireΒ leaves me unsettled somewhere in my mind I can’t readjust. It also feels genuinely emotional, horrifically humorous, and exceptionally unique.

    It’s 3 hour runtime is filled with multiple instances of the movie eating itself, telling it’s audience the eating was a magic trick, and throwing the skeletal…
