    Media will overtake us all. You become what you consume. It’s in your thought patterns. A simple mechanism of input and output. Open up and let it in. Long live the new flesh.

    The forces of good attempt to destroy the forces of evil. Agents of the white and black lodge are entangled in an infinite loop filled with grief, pain but also laughter and joy. Time and space seemingly have no meaning. Is there a beginning? An end? Is it future or is it past? It’s only after watching this entire series a 2nd time that I’m able to fully appreciate the brilliant convergent storytelling of Seasons 1, 2, 3 and Fire…

    I’m starting to think I wasn’t as much of a Bond fan as I thought. I’ve seen 14 of them and the vast majority have been aggressively mediocre. This is the first one I’ve seen with Roger Moore and he might be my least favorite Bond unfortunately.

    I’ll watch a couple more Connery movies, catch License to kill with Dalton, maybe revisit Golden Eye and then put this franchise to rest.

    Still an all time favorite.

    This time I watched it with my parents and honestly expected them to hate it, but once I gave them a general interpretation of what was happening, they understood it well enough and were engaged all the way through. In their words, “I’ve never seen anything like this.”

    And then I smiled.

    Even better than I remembered. 10 years ago this was the film that had me hooked on David Lynch. Dreamlike, mysterious, and oozing with style and atmosphere. The surreal bleeds into the real. A romance is doomed. A Hollywood dream is shattered. An overpowering jealousy is taking over. How does the unconscious mind deal with it? What will the conscious mind do?

    It’s always hard for me to choose my all time favorite film but this might be it.

    The Rains of sorrow come down hard. This is possibly the most depressing film Anderson has made. It touches on some very hard hitting themes, most notably regret, isolation, and how early family dynamics or lack thereof shape you as a person. The script skillfully juggles multiple storylines over 3 hours without feeling too slow or drawn out. Sure, some of the stories were better than others but it’s truly impressive what Anderson has done here. And those last 15 minutes are some of the most surreal moments I’ve seen in any movie. An amazing film that weirdly feels underrated and isn’t talked about very often.
