The songs from this one really kept me going through my MA year. The movie itself is so pretty and fun. The dancing skinned deer thing scares the shit out of me though. Still, I love you, Julee Cruise! "I fell for you baby, like a bomb / Now my love's gone up in flames / The history, baby, read it in a book / It ended in the fire that started the war." <3
I mean you can never say Lynch isn't imaginative and beautiful in some way shape or form. Interesting watch. The music was lovely and the stage design was really cool. The babies defending from above was pretty terrifying and surreal. However, my only gripe is that I wish I could have seen it live instead of a recording. I'm sure my appreciation would have benefited greatly. Oh well.
Can't really understand the dislike of this I see from others, this has to be one of the most beautiful spectacles Lynch and Badalamenti have ever devised, and though I've known her music from his other films, I've gained a newfound appreciation for Julee Cruise. Definitely a must-see if you're a fan of Lynch, Badalamenti or Cruise, and indeed very hard to track down.
