THE PIANO
Hunter is so expressive, like a firework (intended) exploding again and again.
❞ - Henry

THELMA & LOUISE
I took a "fluff" class senior year of high school called Mass Media, and we were allowed to do a project on anything we wanted. My friend Meaghan and I decided to do our project on Brad Pitt,..I had never seen "Thelma & Louise" and found myself obsessed with it. I think I watched it five times by the time my senior year was over. ❞ -Jakey

"Hit Me"? Eraserhead

Check out these fine Hit Me With Your Best Shot entries to read about the visual highlights of David Lynch's 1977 calling card.

  • Pussy Goes Grrr "in heaven everything is fine"
  • Awww, the Movies loses its head.
  • Antagony & Ecstacy Tim Brayton is one of the best film critics on the web so I hope you're all reading him religiously. He looks at Eraserhead's opening shot.
  • Okinawa Assault also focuses on the film's early moments. These shadows will darken.
  • Film Actually picks something truly grotesque but then... this is Eraserhead. ;)

Strike Two for Nathaniel. Way to kill one of TFE's most popular features, man. Never again do I wait until Wednesday to type up my entry. Strike One: The Beauty and the Beast was a fluke problem. My DVD up and vanished on me -- two weeks later it's still missing and I'm still confused about where it could have gone. Unless Monty ate it. Strike Two: Eraserhead. This one just goes to show you that addiction to Netflix's Instant Watch is unhealthy. I love that feature but it's just not reliable enough for appointment viewing.

The ironic part is that I chose the film almost solely BECAUSE it was on Instant Watch and I figured that would make it easier for anyone who wished to participate on short notice. Alas sometime within the last seven days, just when we needed it, they removed the movie. I didn't think to keep checking because I hadn't seen any notice of "only available until..."  

THE SCHEDULE
Next week we're looking at Matador (1986) and/or Law of Desire (1987) the Banderas/Almodovar double. I own both movies so it shouldn't be a problem. But if there's a consecutive Strike Three I'll know it's time to shutter the series until whatever bad mojo is haunting me has been exorcized (sigh).

At the very least, please don't cancel it before Moulin Rouge!

Eraserhead has been on Instant for years. What happened? I went to grab my image and it was gone. See, this is exactly why I used to buy every movie I intended to write about on DVD (or at least not return it to Blockbuster until they were threatening my credit card for bloated retail price).
