3 Films by David Lynch
Blue Velvet, Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive
Speaking to a crowd of supporters, Margaret Thatcher, as played by Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady, explains what she would do as prime minister: “Crush the working class, crush the scum, the yobs.”
At least that is a scene from a pirated version of the film in Russia, which has been inadvertently reviewed by one of the country’s top film critics without realising that some rather pointed changes to the script had been made.
The pirated Russian translation of the film, voiced over in a monotone by one man, depicts Thatcher as a bloodthirsty, Hitler-admiring leader, whose fondest desire is to destroy the working class. While some of her critics might say this is an accurate representation of her plans, even her fiercest enemy would concede the Russian version takes it too far.
“The masturbating gunman. He’s here!”
A gunman gets on the trail of kidnapped women he gets hired to locate by sniffing the crotches of their soiled underwear. The plot involves the gunman’s search for a nun, his sister. In one bravura sequence, the trapped gunman, inspired by his sister’s panties, kills his enemies by firing large loads of his own acidic semen at them.
Samurai Cop looks like a really good movie.
EVERY ONE!!! EVERY ONE, LISTEN!!! I have finally watched I HEART HUCKABEES. I endorse this movie!!! LOOK AT THIS SCENE!!!!!!!!
NEVER FORGET (how adorable I Heart Huckabees is)!
Woof. The trailer for Atlas Shrugged, The Movie, Part 1 (of three, maybe?!) looks like a trainwreck. (Get it?) (Sorry.)
The film is very stylized. Is it really important to you to make a film that’s rich in content, but equally as aesthetically pleasing?
It’s not my taste and it’s not about my style—it’s about the style that I think is appropriate for the film. The film is about the way we magnify people when we’re in love—walking down the street feeling like we’re floating, hence the slow motion, the music, the costumes, the colors. A lot of people said it was a case of style over substance, but being in love is often a case of style over substance.
