probably. all the better to see an active thread, my dear.

I wholeheartedly agree. It just bugs me that when something aspires to certain qualities that it gets socked for the very qualities that make it stand tall. nobody complains that an action movie is too exciting yet many dismiss 'art movies' for being artsy fartsy.
me, I think it's a right brain movie. things like the ear and the ants and the ever ghastly Dean Stockwell are memorable in the same way that Bunuel's children playing with scorpions is memorable. I respect Davey's own breadbasket and wouldn't change it if I could. I just think there's a really good discussion to have about this movie and I'd hate to see things stall out at He Likes It & He Don't.
