    No problem. I'm usually pretty apt at watching a film for the first time and getting almost all there is to from it but I found that about halfway through IE my mind went into panic mode as if it couldn't process anymore information. One thing I will say is that the camera work during the first act seemed to be purposely tame so that when we begin to venture outside of convention the seemingly superfluous camera work comes off as all the more creative and technically sufficient. Lynch says he'll never make a movie using actual film again but I'm curious as to how this will translate to less experimental story lines.

    Also, another Lynch film entitled Lost Highway was just released on DVD Tuesday after not having a proper release for more than 10 years. I'd highly recommend checking it out.

    It was alright. There was nothing out of the ordinary or special about it but it held it's own and certainly isn't a bad film.

    Killing Fields 1984

    That was one hard movie to watch. Malkovich is such a great actor.

The movie itself is presented as a crime/thriller but most of the dialogue, especially the more speech-driven moments are not about moving the story along but instead about expanding on the themes existing in the film. Basically the film is saying that certain events are going to appear before us all and outside of a few initial decisions much of our involvement in the outcome is over as if the past directly projects a mesh of a scenario and a minute decision made by an individual. It's a bit more complicated than that but it's not an overly or unnecessary complex film. The problem most have with it is that they fail to realize that it and its characters are more representative of ideas and theories instead of actual people within a story.

    I just finished the movie and came and read your explanation straight after.
    Does the average movie watcher really see the movie like this?

    I see the cleverness now, but had I not read your post the movie came across weird with no ending.

    Probably not, but maybe it would benefit the average movie watcher move to see films that are thematically closer to this than whatever else is being released.

    Understandable but the average person needs to realize that cinema does and will exist with or without them and that their bearing on the subject is worthless. Even though such films (Funny Games being a current example) do not necessarily cater to their cinematic needs it's important that they realize their existence and purpose. The release of such films may translate as being more of a provactive statement than anything else but that's not to say the underlying message is lost as well.
