aviblack
12:50
Seen it
Devin Chalmers
13:39
oh man, i was thinking when i was rewatching this last night how great it would be as a stage production!
Ryan Goldman
13:43
Isabella actually got better looking in this version.
aviblack
13:44
Which version is this?
Devin Chalmers
14:18
not sure about the casting of jeffrey
Patrick

20:15
PBR
Patrick
22:30
I can hear you fairly well
Laura Wells
24:55
I first saw it this month.
Eddy
25:32
Maybe a year after it came out, on TV? I was 17 so it was pretty unsettling. Also I lived in rural Ireland so it was 2x foreign
Ashley
27:57
I've never seen it, so I will only have a post "#MeToo" perspective
Christophe Silvey
32:03
Yes The Favorite was in that space. I wonder if Greed is.
Devin Chalmers
35:22
it’s my go-to karaoke number
Will the Thrill
35:56
Devin, but do you sing it like Isabella?
Eddy
36:04
Toss-up betwen BV and Mulholland Drive
Devin Chalmers
36:35
will, i definitely approach it from bobby’s direction but maybe i’ll have to rethink that
Devin Chalmers
41:33
the river’s edge is so good
Patrick
43:22
he is that great American train wreck that you can't turn your attention away from
Christophe Silvey
46:12
i’ve read parts of that
New Parkway
50:21
How could anyone think that BV is a good date movie??
New Parkway
53:32
Dennis is not a nice man.
Devin Chalmers
54:10
dean stockwell is so good in this
Avi Black
54:50
This is THE scene — like this Night Gallery episode of the waiting room to hell, only on ether.
Christophe Silvey
54:56
Who is the guy in the tan leather coat? The only one I don’t know
Devin Chalmers
58:13
the moment he stops lip synching and the song keeps going is top five david lynch film moments for me. so simple and so viscerally disconcerting. a missing stair
Christophe Silvey
59:05
Lost Highway right there at the end
Will the Thrill
59:27
Agreed. I also love the music in MD!
Forbidden Island
59:31
Loved the songs so much that I bought the soundtrack soon after!
Christophe Silvey
59:52
He had just been in Dune
Christophe Silvey
01:00:32
Stockwell and Nance too
Christophe Silvey
01:01:11
Fantastic ensemble scene
Devin Chalmers
01:01:38
ben is extremely dgaf
Eddy
01:02:19
This is the scariest scene in the movie for me. I could understand what was going on with Frank being violent but everything about Ben creeped me out, and still does tbh
Eddy
01:02:44
oh yeah
Avi Black
01:02:47
Ben
Christophe Silvey
01:02:52
Ben
Eddy
01:09:06
I gotta different take. Frank is very violent but also very needy. Ben is self sufficient and is ale to use Frank and I totally believe he tortures people for fun.He enjoys punching Jeffrey and whatever has happened to Dorothy's son is too awful to show. Franks seems much more manageable (possibly because I've been around people like that) whereas Ben is completely unrpedictable.
Eddy
01:10:39
oh my microphone does work on this computer
Lee
01:13:27
"don't look at me"... we all try to deny the dirty/hateful/dangerous thoughts and impulses we have.
Lee
01:14:31
This scene is so similar to the audition scene in mulloland drive
Devin Chalmers
01:17:07
lee, this is also really making me want to watch mulholland drive
Rachel Grottke
01:17:36
It's a beautiful song & what's so absurd is that the woman dances terribly. Makes it comical to be distracted by something that can strike people as funny while something horrible is going on.
Forbidden Island
01:18:56
Such great song. I especially love the Tom Jones version!
Sara Ochoa
01:19:03
+1
Lee
01:19:29
taking tite dialog/lyrics, and only by delivery, transforming them into something much more dark
Lee
01:19:42
trite
Christophe Silvey
01:21:23
ohh who is that…
Avi Black
01:22:11
(Sorry, no mic on my end)
Lee
01:22:44
chad Everett, my bad
Devin Chalmers
01:23:56
i love this camera angle
Avi Black
01:26:36
I didn’t really think much while watching the film (for the first time) about the time periods being shown here; but growing up in the 60’s/70’s, I’m definitely cluing in on how the film is “taking place” in the late 60’s, a time of tremendous turbulence and casting off of old norms/values, while the music is from the 50’s, a time that MAGA types want to return to for its “family values” in popular iconography (think Leave it to Beaver) but was also the McCarthy Era, major Cold War BS, etc. Makes me think of “Happy Days” glorifying a bygone era during the 70’s, when it was long gone — though the conservative movement of today was just starting to take off, in post-Goldwater era.
Christophe Silvey
01:27:09
I think Chad Everett was the guy in Mulholland Drive
Devin Chalmers
01:27:18
that’s a great note avi, thank you for writing that
Christophe Silvey
01:27:23
you guys handled Zoom very well
Lee
01:27:24
I wish you had done the introduction of Sandy & Dorothy side by side. Each of their introductions inform the film so much
Laura Wells
01:27:28
interesting that it had a 1950s style “happy ending”
New Parkway
01:27:55
How about a plug for next week and Pulp Fiction! Link will be up on the dedicated webpage, soon to show up on website…
Eddy
01:28:11
Really loved this, thank you guys!

Next week discuss PULP FICTION!!!
Rachel Grottke
01:29:13
Sorry I was late but looks like I came in at a pivotal part.
Christophe Silvey
01:30:50
Pulp Fiction sounds good
Eddy
01:32:35
It was dope!
Avi Black
01:33:32
Happy birthday!
Rachel Grottke
01:34:14
My brother & I could probably quote the entire Pulp Fiction movie.
Christophe Silvey
01:36:36
can we like other comments?
Eddy
01:36:45
Thank you! See you next week!
