IIRC, this one. It's been a while though I read those interviews but this is how I understood his comments when Heritage was released. He seemed to be more into old-fashioned Progressive Rock than Metal.

Darn. Well thanks for the info anyway  :)

^That man sure has an awful jacket. Mixing leather with other fabrics like that is heresy. :police:

Inland Empire is that film dude. 3 hours of pure Lynch, just incredible. It's going to take along while for this one to sink in and there is one scene in particular which I think is the most disturbing haunting image I have ever seen.

A hell of an emotional rollercoaster.

You've bought me, I'm into watching it.
Got it? Watching it right now again.

The Road. It was pretty much the book, nothing more nothing less.

Lol, I didn't know there is a book of same idea. Maybe I should read it since I didn't quite understand the movie. It didn't seem exactly bad one but the wasn't happening except walking and flashbacks.

Cormac McCarthy's style of writing isn't really the best for clarifications.

Watched two movies on netflix recently...

The Hollywood Complex - About parents who try get their kids into the movie industry during pilot season. Pretty fairly balanced I thought, when it would have been easy to sensationalise things given the material. Nonetheless, you feel relieved at the end when at least one of the children goes back to having a normal life, though you feel bad for some others. Overall the parents came across very well, unlike movies/shows I've seen based on similar subject material, in which the parents usually seemed to either be exploiting their kids or trying to relive their childhood through them or something.

I Think We're Alone Now - About two people--one with Asperger's and one who is intersexual--who are obsessed with former teen pop personality Tiffany. I have a thing for Tiffany, that's why it caught my attention  :angel:  These two individuals are quite obsessed with Tiffany though, and it's one of those trainwreck reality show type situations that you don't look away from. Frankly I felt bad for both individuals, on multiple levels, though they both seem to at least have some support.

I am looking forward to The Master. Critics rave, but fan reviews are so-so. Lots of fan reviews were actually pretty bad. I hope it's as good as the critics say. I usually trust the critics over the fans, but when a lot of fans say they hate a movie then that's not a good sign. Anyone seen it yet?

ASAP.

PTA is arguably the greatest American filmaker of our generation.

Frankly, I don't put much stock in reviews and try to avoid them before seeing a film.

I have only one objection - the forest scene with light bulb was a little over-the-top, in a bizarre way, that is ;)
