  • Wild at Heart

    Wild at Heart

    ★★★★★

    “If 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 “wild at heart and weird on top”, as is most of…

    Twin Peaks: The Return

    ★★★★★

    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…

    Scream

    Good but not great: the new Scream is intense and entertaining throughout, and it certainly has enough of its signature meta dark comedy charm…but there’s just a something missing here and the whole proceeding just feels a bit unnecessary, no matter how heavily the movie implies to the audience that it’s production is warranted. Possibly the absence of longtime director of the series Wes Craven is truly felt. Regardless, for fans of the Scream saga, there will certainly be things here to…

    ★★★★★

    One of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. What a unique journey. Wow.

    I’d recommend this to any fans of animation, existential/philosophical themes, and/or surrealism. Just brilliant.

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

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

    On my third watch, Mulholland Drive hasn’t lost any of it’s mysterious charisma — 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

    ★★★★★

    What a vision — 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 Empire 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…
