    Thanks for the compliments, guys! And Bill, I completely agree with you regarding Mulholland Drive. Some of his films do tend to 'spin off the tracks.' I hear that was also a problem with "Lost Highway." Though I do love the "dream-logic" of his films, it should still be bound in with a relatively cohesive story. That's why I prefer movies like Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, or his very sunshine-y, and in some ways UN-Lynchian "The Straight Story."
    Yes, I forgot all about The Straight Story. You never would guess that was a Lynch film. It does show the breadth of his talent.

    Hmm... I thought "Straight Story" qualified an update, but you're right: If we updated it every new addition, we'd have no thread left... Anyhow, I owe you one refresh.

    Why is it that we girls always end up doing the "houskeeping" while the guys play???

    That would be my #1 offbeat movie. I love affair between an 80 year old woman and a young man hung up on faking his own sucide. I bet it was fun trying to sell that movie concept to a producer.

    God, I had never thought of it in that way before.

    I really liked Harold and Maude too.
