15 minutes of Youtube, David Lynch

I've just returned from David Lynch's new movie, INLAND EMPIRE. Like the vast majority of his work it was brain scrambling stuff.

To mark the occassion, some David Lynch related clips from Youtube

To begin a parody scene from the Simpsons. This is from the "Who shot Mr Burns?" episode

Kudos to the person who can spot what parts of this next clip, from Twin Peaks, is parodied above. Answers on a postcard please

A scene from Eraserhead. "Just cut them up like regular chickens."

A cigarette commercial by Mr Lynch

Next, a scene from the Elephant Man.

I'll finish where I began, with the Simpsons. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Homer watching Twin Peaks (and a little bit extra).

This 15 minutes of dossing was brought to you by the Dossing Times.

The dam PC I am at won't let me watch the clip but I assume its Lisa giving Wiggum clues as to who shot Burns in the Red Room, a parody of a dream Agent Cooper had early in the Twin Peaks series.

Is there a prize?

Competition not open to writers here at Dossing Times.

Anybody else?

Kevin Breathnach said...

What ck said. Forget understanding it, did you enjoy Inland Empire?

Tuathal said...

Kevin wins...Here are your Kudos!!

Inland Empire is astounding, more a work of art than a movie. I think 'enjoyed' is the wrong word here. I've been haunted by it since seeing it and my thoughts on it are as confused as the film itself. It just grabs you by the throat and never lets go...even after you've left the theatre.

That said i would not recommend it to anybody

Kevin Breathnach said...

No recommendation. That's quite interesting. Might take issue with that on DL later on.

Nothing from the film has yet resonated in my subconscious, and I don't believe anything will. It was not, for me, a particularly frightening film, nor freaky in any Twin Peaks way. It was just, well, interesting, as is Lynch's nature. And terribly funny, a lot of the time. That scene with the homeless people...

I've written moreover on DL.

Sorry for not being clearer regarding recommending the movie.

If someone asks for my thoughts on the movie they will, of course, get them.

Should people see it? Yes, anybody who's interest in film extends beyond Wayan bros. movies should see it.

When i say I wouldn't recommend it to somebody i mean I wouldn't be able to tell somebody that they will enjoy or get the film on any level. I wouldn't be able to tell them that they won't despise it and walk out after an hour as many did last night. The film is just too....well interesting, if you know what i mean. My message would be, 'make up your own mind if you want to go see it or not'.

I think i'm tying myself in knots.
