  1. Wow, intelligent commentary on Star Wars, Blade Runner, and Lost Highway? What more could you ask for!

    Some notes:
    - As the youngling that I am, I actually watched the "Final Cut" of Blade Runner before I watched any of the versions with the narration, and I have to admit I did think some of it was confusing the first time I saw it, but only on a narrative level (i.e. who is that woman Han Solo is chasing?), whereas I think it's always been clear at a thematic level.
    - The idea that Lynch pulls things out of his films to make them more abstract reminds me of Terrence Malick, who shoots immense amounts of footage and then drastically cuts it down in the editing room. It's interesting that you then mention Tree of Life, which you didn't like. Maybe it's just a matter of personal taste/connection/whatever.
    - I wish Patrick (& JB) were at my house
