Trivia

The song Windom Earle plays on his bamboo flute is "Questions in a World of Blue" by Julee Cruise. The music in the scene where Harry tells Cooper the name of the dead vagrant alludes to the same melody, as does the saxophone music playing while Evelyn Marsh is blowing smoke rings. See more »

A TV show I used to like a lot
26 June 2006 | by Cristi_CiopronSee all my reviews

The story goes on easily with a gracefulness and ability like that of the "Arabian Nights".This is so much better than the other five Lynch movies I know ("Dune","Blue Velvet","Fire Walk ...","Mulholland" and "Straight")!This work is the most important,keen,accomplished,clever and successful of all the Lynch's movies I've seen.

There is also a wide amount of bad taste,and the invoked secrets make me laugh (but I admit they didn't when I was 12!).(The "Arabian Nights" do not lack bad taste and aren't faultless either.)

The humor is sometimes clumsy and alien,but the overall note is droll and thrilling.

Lynch's epics is unstrung and seemingly sewed together,but broad,interesting,homogeneous and hypnotizing.

The photography is fine.

The acting is average and in itself obviously very reduced and poor ( MacLachlan is an fourth-rate actor,and commonplace,vapid,and so is the rest of the crew, excepting Ian Buchanan (as "Dick") and,maybe,Beymer). For a check,see the opposite case of Von Trier's "Riget"/"The Kingdom", were the acting is elegant,consummate and sundry,diversified (Jaregard, HJ Hansen,Okking,etc.,etc.,the whole cast).

(I know Lynch is a ,in this matter,a minimalist,but sometimes he just keeps too ..."minimal".)
