in case you were wondering...

So far, today has featured doing laundry, reading, and watching Mulholland Drive. I don't really think that I got a whole lot more out of it on this second-viewing, but it is still a good movie.

Last night I went to see About Schmidt and had Mexican food with Kate and Carole. The theater was packed and we had to sit in the second row, but our seats didn't diminish my enjoyment of the movie. While the film may have changed my perspective about motor homes, the wedding-related scenes only reinforced my deep discomfort with marriage. It was painfully realistic. I've been thinking about the ending, which I thought was found ambiguous [but good]. Carole thought it was a happy ending; maybe I'm just too cynical.

I have no specific plans for tonight. But I've run out of cash and have already visited the ATM too many times this week; so I will probably stay in.

I'm surprised you didn't get anything out of a second viewing. I've only seen it once, and always thought a second viewing would be very enlightening.
Well, I may have gotten something--just not a lot--from the second viewing. Maybe it's a special case since I read this analysis after seeing the movie the first time.

The DVD is from NetFlix if you want to borrow it for enlightenment before I send it back.
That is an excellent analysis from Salon. I also read it after seeing the movie for the first time. I always imagined that having read that, and then watching the film again, everything would be clear. But maybe everything that is going to be clear already is (the analysis being very in depth and descriptive). I would very much like to borrow the dvd from you before you send it back. Thank you.
... the disappointing part of the DVD is that it has only one long "chapter" to make it difficult to skip around to different parts of the movie. I guess David Lynch is a bit of a control freak.
