    They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    β€œMaybe the whole damn world is like central casting... they got it all rigged before you ever show up”

    We dance, we run, we fall in love (in my case, with Jane Fonda...), we fall out of love. We stare at tragedy from afar until it reaches us. We have no choice. We’re born into it. And if we make it out alive we’re charged for every service we’re so graciously offered because we can’t stop running for long enough…

    β€œI pray but I am lost. Am I just praying to silence?”

    One of hollywood’s few confrontations with faith that don’t feel forced or facile.

    Picture the most killer candyflip you’ve ever had. Now imagine having a three-way with Heather Graham and James Duval at an intimate Slowdive concert hosted on an MTV set during that candyflip. Now imagine doing a whip-it while you’re climaxing.

    That’s Nowhere.

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    β€œEverything but everything”

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me is a prime example of Lynch firing on all cylinders: Horrifying, off-kilter, deranged, unbalanced, inexplicable, devastating and hilarious at times. If it’s a horror film, then the monster is depression, stemming from fractured relationships, impossibly high expectations, and the banality of American life that Twin Peaks so relentlessly satires throughout the show’s runtime. Its also a tragic character study that shatters our assumptions– as well as the town’s rosy memories– of…
