Aquiles' Recent Reviews
As usual, Lynch knows how to create an involving and mysterious atmoshphere, while leaving the audience confused. The story is complex, and this is the kind of film that doesn't give the answers at the end, leaving most to interpretation. There is also a lot of explicit sex, which I felt was too much, but I guess it made sense for the plot. It plays with reality, dreams, identities, and while I like Mulholland Drive better, I thought this one was pretty intriguing as well.
I get that this film wants to critic the society of itīs time, and I did find some good scenes, in particular the final scene with the mimes on the tennis court, as well as some well done technical aspects. But I just found it boring at times because of itīs slow pace, shallow characters and a story that doesnīt seem to go anywhere. Itīs a different kind of movie, and I appreciate that, but it was a bit pretentious for my taste.

Excellent film. It's almost impossible for me to say bad things about it. I just love when you are at the edge of your seat during the whole movie. I also see that it's hard to fully understand the movie the first time you watch it, because Hollywood is used to make brainless explosion silly movies. But is that difference that makes it better. Anyways the acting, the script, the visuals, the twists, and the score played together perfectly to give us this masterpiece.
