Admittedly I viewed it in the way you posted in the beginning of spoiler. But I do enjoy your interpretation. Around how many times have you watched the film?
And I'll need to check out Room 237 sometime as well. The Shining is my favorite Nicholson film, although I haven't read the book and I can only recall seeing Cuckoo's Nest and Chinatown, so I don't have much to compare it to. I enjoyed both of those films as well.
Went to see Iron Man 3 yesterday. I really liked it, imo it was about as good as the previous two IM films. Lots of badass scenes, not just with Tony but Pepper too. I definitely recommend it for you, if you liked the previous two films (and have seen The Avengers). Remember to stay after the credits, so many people left the theater right when the credits started rolling. They missed something awesome. :P
my bbys <3
Not really sure why but I completely Iron Man 3 was even in development! I'll probably watch it eventually.
It's not my kind of movie. After a certain point of realism I lose interest when it comes to films. I know what you mean about staying to the end in cinemas though. I always want too since most credits these days have extra footage during them, but the law of the cinema makes you have to get up and leave with everyone else. I could just sit there but no one would be able to get past xD
By far the best, most satisfying explanation of Mulholland Dr I've ever read was in an essay called "This is the Girl" by Martha P. Nochimson. She actually did the impossible and provided an interpretation in which both portions of the film manage to be equally valid and fit together as a cohesive, linear story. The gist of it was that the film is about Hollywood's tendency to stifle creative talent - the Hollywood in Mulholland Dr is controlled by sinister forces whose ultimate goal is to ensure that Betty is never cast in Adam's film (as would be the natural order of things - when Adam and Betty have their brief almost-meeting in the first part of the film, Adam is clearly in awe of her). Although it is Rita, in the first part, who appears to be the hunted one, Betty is actually the intended victim all along, and it is her willingness to help reunite Rita (the pawn of the powers that be) with her true identity that seals her fate.
I've actually lost track of how many times I've seen Mulholland Dr. XD I'd say eight at the very least.
On second viewing I think I know exactly what Mullholand Drv is all about. Remember the cowboy guy? Course you do, he was an interesting character, anyway, all of the characters are figments of his imagination, they personify his dreams, his hopes, his passions. We don't see the cowboy very often because he doesn't think or dream about himself as he actually is. The only time we see him is when his other personalities make him reflect on his true self, like a mirror in which he sees the true cowboy.
I am not necessarily serious, but it's a completely valid assessment of the film.
Dead thread :0
Ok, favourite actress?
I really don't care for Johannson but OMG yes! Susan Sarandon is brilliant. I loved her in Rocky Horror, such a great voice!
Myself, of course. *arrogant drama student*
No, really, the first one to come to mind is Catherine Tate. She is up there because she just has such bolshy conviction. When I saw her in a theatrical performance I completely adored her! Another favourite of mine is Lauren Socha; she completely won me over in Misfits with her delivery and I couldn't help but love her character as a result.
I saw Iron Man 3 today. Wasn't as good as 2 but much better than 1.
*revives chat with my mere presence* :b
So I have a question for you all! Do you listen to music in just one language? Or more than one? This was just a random thought that came to me when I was at work. |3
