I haven't read the other reviews...i'm sure lots of them try and explain what 'this movie is about'. they should become psychoanalysts...i'm pretty sure if we asked LYNCH 'what it was about', he'd say, 'beats me'. it's as if had storyboarded a dream...and it's something to experience...robert blake playing 'the midget'. a character lynch seems to employ in lots of his work, was fantastic...plus i hadn't seen him in anything in quite a while...
i saw this film for the second time last night, thinking it might make more sense... and what i realized is that some stories impact me viscerally and are every bit as valid as the ones that 'make sense'.
