    This did for me what Star Trek and Star Wars were unable to do... make me excited about the possibility of a sequel. I don't think I've felt this for any filmed saga other than Lord of the Rings. Simply put, the film successfully carried me away to a mythic world of intrigue and wonder.

    I should note, I suppose, that I have not read the novel, and have nearly no memory of Lynch's adaptation beyond its leaving me disappointed.

    And, oh, I loved the soundtrack! Gonna have to pay more attention to this Zimmer fella.

    Pretty damned near brilliant. Director Zweig interviews, nay - psycho-analyzes, and CROSS-EXAMINES - record collectors in an effort to understand the roots of his own obsessiveness, loneliness and feelings of self-loathing. Among the collectors he's interviews are Harvey Pekar, Guy Madden and Bruce La Bruce, though nobody is identified in the film. But make no mistake, some of these collectors are quite sick... more hoarders than collectors, allowing their obsessions to paint their lives into a frighteningly dark and cluttered…

    Incredibly slow, yet I couldn't take my eyes away. By the end, I wished I had. What bullshit.
