Crazier Than Rat Shit
Went to see Inland Empire tonight. One of the scariest movies so much so that I am afraid to go to sleep tonight. Scary psychologically. Crazy as hell. Stagg says I should post "crazy as rabbit pellets" but you'd have to see the movie to see why he says that rather than rat shit. We loved the movie even though it was really really disturbing, it was hard to walk home in the dark.
When presenting screenings of the film, Lynch sometimes offers a clue, in the form of a quote from the Aitareya Upanishad: "We are like the spider. We weave our life and then move along in it. We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives in the dream. This is true for the entire universe."
