One Chants Out Between Two Works, Fat Ewok With Me


Little known fact: David Lynch was asked to direct Return of the Jedi. This is a fact, because it’s on his IMDB trivia page. I’ve spent a lot of time imagining a Lynchian Star Wars film, so it’s great to hear him actually talk about this. It could have been so good! I’m a firm believer in the awesomeness of Dune.

Richard Marquand does deserve credit for his directorial work on Return of the Jedi, if only because he gave us the second most important line of dialogue in cinematic history.

The first most important line of dialogue in cinematic history also happens to be from a Star Wars film, for what it’s worth.

 

A 15 year old girl reviews David Lynch films

Oh, to be young again! To spoil the whole thing: she thought Blue Velvet was hilarious, Dune was unwatchable, and Fire Walk With Me was apparently even worse than Dune.

To be fair, this girl is fifteen. I probably had trouble dressing myself at that age. But I do want to question one common injustice: why does Dune get such a bad rap? I think it’s a very fun and engaging science fiction film. If anything, just for the novelty of being the only noir-baroque sci-fi film ever made. And the soundtrack was a Brian Eno/Toto collaboration! How can that not make you smile?

 

Would you still love me anyways?

If you’ve had even a passing interest in this blog, you can probably tell that I worship David Lynch. Blue Velvet spoke to me, Twin peaks defined me, blah blah blah, don’t take the ring Laura, so on and so forth. Jennifer Lynch has, at times, come close to following in her father’s footsteps. Her work on Laura Palmer’s Diary was inspired and took the Twin Peaks mythology in an incredible and unexpected direction. Her first full length Boxing Helena was a masterful take on the destruction of beauty, the predation of play, the paralyzation of fear… lots and lots of stuff. Second wave feminists wrote papers praising it, third wave feminists wrote papers condemning it. It’s hideously misogynistic in the same way The Story of O is, and it’s very much worth seeing.

Now Jeniffer Lynch has a new film based on the legend of Naga, the creepy snake woman that Indian boys have nightmares about. After watching the above trailer, I can’t help but think… what the fuck? I hope this is just a poorly put together trailer, because it looks like a Sci-Fi Channel movie of the week. “Oh my God, that woman is a snake and BLOOD and VIOLENCE and MAYBE SPLOSIONS!” I’m going to give it a chance once it hits wide release, but I expected a lot more from the woman who wrote and directed Boxing Helena.

 

Do you know somebody called “The Cowboy?”

I got the pool… she got the pool-man.
