Does he though?

lol, the video im referencing is no longer on youtube, so maybe 'the execs' are not cool with it after all.  it was from the set of twin peaks, him working out a scene with the actors and then flipping out at a producer who tried to hint at him that he had to hurry up. 

he's also sick of your bullshit @Candiru but needs that advance for casting.  he's seen your og patti fucken platypus behind your knockoff knoll desk in your shitty office.

I watched this too. Not sure quite what to make of it, but my gut tells me it was an elaborate prank based around a true crime.

I remeber mulholland drive just being in a single appartment or something. 

You remember wrong and it's one of my favourite films by him, along with Inland Empire and Lost Highway. But they are all very good if you are in the mood and certainly unique. 🤷‍♂️ But to each their own 💯💯

well considering the films title is 'mulholland drive' and 'mulholland drive' is the basis of the plot twist im not completely wrong. Its very geographicly boring. 

The irony to this quote is almost too good to be true.

why. the film is off the rails when it goes too far out of hollywood. they should have just cut the scenes out. 

You claim the film takes place almost entirely in an apartment. This is false. One of Lynch's greatest talents is implying a sense of claustrophobia when it's not actually there.

As well, I have no idea what "too far out of Hollywood" means. To be pedantic, part of Mulholland Drive (including what's shown in the opening credits) is actually in Hollywood. As well the idea of Mulholland Drive being geographically boring is equally baffling to me. It's one of the coolest scenic routes in L.A. and a lot of people do idiotic racing on it so boring is a bad descriptor. As far as the movie, I quite like how it shifts. The tone is different but the film itself is still a linear trajectory.

what i mean by this is theres no sense of excape or adventure in which the audiance is participating in like LOTR (lord of the rings) theres always a breaching into another place and its vast enouth to inspire the viewer. Theres nothing like that in lynch's MD.

 thanks for the reply. I see it more like groundhog day as shifts. Doesn't really shift like the way you want it to. That said i'm not dissing Groundhog Day.

Look, its not the worst film out there. I might watch it again if they have it on a plane or something. But other than that. No. 

Groundhog Day > Mulholland Drive obv.

why not?

I'm not saying it's not, I'm saying it is, just to get a kick out of the reactions. So, trolling basically. I'm being a troll.

I soooo want to fly on whatever airline is playing Mulholland as an in-flight movie. Particularly if they still presented them as forced viewing for the entire plane....

is this sarcastic? 

Not at all. I just find the idea of having Mullholland as an in flight movie amusing (bordering on the hilarious). Like, imagining a cabin full of people held captive w/any Lynch film? Tickles me. Oh, gah, like, what if it was an intercontinental flight and they did a Lynch marathon? Peoples faces would melt off. 

Its a bit diff nowadays w the movies being self selected to a degree and on the seatbacks. Sort of loses the charm of the in-flight communal experience. Also, makes the idea of lynch on the flight slightly less amusing (but only slightly)

I watched Carrie the other day and thought the mom was completely hilarious. 
 

Every time she said “roadhouse whiskey on his breath” I fucking died I have no idea why.

      Title says it all: post a still, others guess.

      So by now some of you guys may know about my obsession with the David Fincher film "The Game" which I went as far as to create multiple tribute albums/alternative soundtracks to (as well as a comprehensive online and IRL scavenger hunt based on the film).
       
      Anyway, I thought instead of creating a thread on the film- which I may do as well- that I'd draw focus to the screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris--which not much is known or published about them outside of just their list of credits, at least that I could find. This screenwriting duo who penned the film's story, have a vast resume of films - and they all share a similar thread: very paranoid, conspiratorial thrillers that are usually psychological, often creepy, and typically very mind bending and puzzling. I also think they deserve an IDM award for the types of movies they write. Naturally, the 1997 pair up of Brancato and Ferris with Fincher for The Game was just a dead on perfect move. And adding Michael Douglas as character Van Orton just put the icing on the cake.
       
      Here is a list of their films:
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brancato_and_Michael_Ferris
       
      What I've been finding most fascinating lately is the detailed connection I discovered between several of their films- namely The Game and Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines...
       
      No true spoilers here or anything (soft spoilers at best)..
       
      In The Game, fraudulent corporation Consumer Recreation Services are a massive part of the film's focus and the company behind the "game" that Michael Douglas plays. They are referred to in various parts to the film (partial spoiler alert) as CRS - but using different words for the same acronym all under the guise of different offshoots of the same company (Cable Repair Specialists, California Regal Sedans, etc).
       
      In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, (and for the first time in the series), its revealed that Skynet project's parent company (who built the Terminators themselves) is called Cyber Research Systems which uses the same acronym CRS. There's even a wiki on it: http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_Research_Systems
       
      I can't help but think there may be a connection--at the very least a simple nod to the evil corporation theme of Brancato and Ferris' previous films... but possibly even more deep and complex of a link (which would be amazing). I've scourged Google for any published mention of this connection, and found 1 mere sighting where another person mentioned something, but was very surface and wasn't really intentional linking. Either way, it seems hard to imagine these were coincidental, and now I'm on a quest to watch every Brancato/Ferris film to see if there are other threads running through their various screenplays. So far, I've seen The Game, The Net, Catwoman, Terminator 3, Flight of Black Angel, and an episode of The Others.

      Anyone else familiar with their work, or keen on any of this?
       

       
      p.s. Fun side note- and [spoiler ALERT for both The Net and The Game] In their 95 screenplay for The Net, an evil corporation is also featured- called The Praetorians- computer hackers bent on stealing people's identity and using anti-virus software to actually infect computers with viruses to create mayhem and steal information-- almost identical to the goal of CRS in The Game. (Also, found it pretty cool that the software company Sandra Bullock works for is called Cathedral Software ... ahem... CathedRal Software. I know I know, that's a stretch).
       
      p.p.s. this thread is literally the first time I've seen any mention of these screenwriters on the web that i could find (outside of databases, wikipedia's, credits on product pages etc). I know screenwriters are often behind the scenes, but damn, it's crazy to me how obscure these guys seem to be as far as information, etc. I did find their production company website, but it's outdated and seems to be more of just a framework. I was excited to hear their narration on the directors commentary feature of The Game's Criterion Collection edition though. :)

      Josh Cooley has a book coming out featuring famous scenes from R-rated movies in the style of children's books. Really cool stuff!

      Can anyone recommend me movies in the vein of Drive (2011), Maniac (2012), that sort of stuff? I love this kind of dark, rainy, inner city setting. I even started playing Max Payne 2 again because of this.
       
      If I'm not mistaken, a lot of this stuff stems from the 50s, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy, so I'm guessing 70s and up would be best.
       
      Thanks a lot!
       
      PS. You can recommend games too if you like, Gemini Rue is a great noir adventure / puzzle game

      Didn't see a post about this when I searched, so I thought I'd mention it. Back in October, Biosphere posted the silent film 'Man With A Movie Camera' to Youtube complete with his score and I only just found it. I have the 2cd set of Substrata that includes this, but I hadn't seen the movie with the score synced up before. It's really awesome how parts of the music act as sound for what's going on in the film. For example, the sample 'sorry to wake you' coincides with a woman waking up. And the various spectral sounds that seem like part of the music when you listen to the score by itself turn out to be foley for machines and trains when you watch the movie.
       
      There is a brief childbirth scene, so you might get a bit grossed out, but this is balanced out by the cute topless Soviet woman giving herself a mud bath. Kind of racy for 1929.
