"Now... you will see me one more time, if you do good. You will see me... two more times, if you do bad."

This is the third Lynch film I've seen, and I'm always impressed with the way he tells stories. However, this is the first film of his that I've truly loved. I'm not a big fan of Lynch in general because his work hasn't really ever spoken to me, but this film is different. This film spoke volumes.

A very sad, very beautiful film of love, loss, and the truth. It made me hold my partner close and remember how fragile and mortal life is, and why that is both beautiful and stressful.

I spent 2/3 of the movie convinced it was made in the 1980s and was shocked to see it was made in 2001 when I was AMAZED at the kiss between two women in the 80s. Still VERY perverse to have that happening in 2001, and only Lynch could get away with it.

Sad that it follows the movie trope of gay people not being able to get a happily ever after. RIP. That's what kept it from being a 5 star movie.
