    Yeah Sha, I worded my post shit. My fave films don't give answers either. But they engross me in wtf is this all about, even tho I know there's no answers to be found. David lynch films like Mulholland drive, lost highway, and inland empire r my absolute faves, and I'm pretty sure they're not even supposed to make sense, especially inland empire. But they captivate the fuck out of me n make me think hard n WANT TO make sense of the madness.

    Yeah I think the great thing about more philosophical, open ended stuff is that you have to do some thinking to get a meaning or a feeling about them.

    I watched Eraserhead a few weeks ago - I think its some sort of metaphor about abortion, societal pressure and what have you but I'm sure I need another viewing. Entertaining though. Inland Empire is really opaque, even for David Lynch it gives you very little steady ground. The Twin Peaks comeback was dope - definitely in the realm of mindfuck and cosmic horror.

    I still haven't even watch the twin peaks comeback, which is appalling. I think I have it on a hard drive. I need to act on that.

    I'm pretty sure everything in Eraserhead was metaphorical. I remember reading some very plausible explanations for it online, back in the day.

    I'm pretty sure I once read or heard David lynch speaking about inland empire n saying it wasn't intended as any kind of cohesive narrative or anything, but rather just a visual experience.

    I'm a big fan of ambiguity and having the freedom to find my own meaning in things. I write a lot of lyrics in that fashion.

    ^^true, the movie was very controversial upon its release

    I saw it and thought it was decent. the violence in it is uncomfortably realistic, which is something you hardly ever see in movies. this realism contrasts well with the reverse chronology set up of the movie imo

    I think principal actors Vincent Cassel and Monica Belluci were dating (or were married) at the time

    if you enjoyed Cassel's acting I can recommend the 2008 two-part* biopic 'Mesrine', which he stars in. Mesrine was a high profile criminal. lots of suspense and action, and definitely some good acting

    can't lie, that scene was ridiculous, couldn't believe how long they went with it too, i saw this movie only once and i was good on it.

    have not seen that Across the River. but for some reason it reminded of this...

    Borgman



    i came across this on Hulu one day and i still stand behind it being the best movie i have watched on that streaming service since.

    very open ended and kinda strange. i highly enjoyed it. and have recommended it before irl but some people dont like subtitles smh

    I've been rewatching John Carpenter movies. I really like his films, he explored a lot of the same themes of this thread in his work. I'm sure most of you are familiar with him but yeah he's worth rewatching.

    I watched Prince Of Darkness which is kind of cheesy but its a smart take on a Satan type movie, has a lot of cool scenes in it. They Live! which is kind of the matrix before the matrix and is alternately funny and a perfect analogy for modern society. The Thing which might be the greatest Cosmic Horror of all time. I think that's his best film, the prequel is a solid precursor to it on a movie night.

    Saw The Thing for the very first time last month (yeah my bad). Great opening scene (the dog in the snow) and terrific use of music. They were showing it on tv past 1am so unfortunately I dozed off during the final. I'd gladly watch it again during office hours haha

    Carpenter often did his own scores but Ennio Morricone did The Thing, very creepy shit. Yeah its definitely worth seeing.

    The prequel is also solid, it has Mary Elizabeth who I always like, keeps the exact same vibe of the original and leads directly into it. The only problem when you watch both films is it shows you how practical effects are so much creepier and more realistic compared to the CG based stuff in the prequel.

    Ennio did the song from the Orca movie also, which was good.
