        The most brilliant part of this is when Ebert says something like "I just want to understand it," Lynch replies "You already do." He preempted what Ebert was about to say when he responded that he understood it emotionally. This is one of those moments Lynch outright explains it all to us. It's just a film with stuff happening that prompts a series of emotions. I don't think Ebert understood that or appreciated it, and that's why he trashed Lynch.

          and this is why Lynch is a moron. It's filler noise.

          Lynch openly said, in multiple interviews, that all of the plot points and mysteries in his movies and series have a definitive answer. He simply refuses to give them, because he views your own interpretation of his works as equally valid, and doesn't want to rob you of it.

          In gaming terms, he's someone who would always refuse to have one canon version of events in a non-linear game.

                I think Lynch jus has a different style of filmmaking that some people mistake for genius. His movies have a different pace and sensibility than most other high profile slop, and some people find that refreshing, but it does not mean it is great or genius, it's just different. Different can also be bad.

                Tarkovsky too. Now, I'll be honest and say I'm open minded to the idea that these people are legitimately great and I'm just not getting them but their fans are not really not doing them any favors. They almost always throw around phrases like "It's a pure audio-visual experience bro""it's not supposed to make sense dude". They almost always throw around the phrase "Spiritual experience" too. These people are rarely religious, don't do anything that require intellectual rigour but they'll tell you that the activity of watching these flicks gives them enlightenment. Sounds lazy and self-aggrandizing to me.

              I think Ebert is right about Lynch trying to shock the audience with the kind of shit some college level filmmakers would do. It worked well for Lynch in his earlier smaller movies, but he kept doing it and it's just no longer shocking, because everyone has seen those kinds of juvenile attempts at being shocking so many times already. I did rewatch Wild at Heart last year for the first time since it came out, and it wasn't as good as I remembered.

      >Roger didn’t like Full Metal Jacket, gave a shitty Benji the dog movie a positive review in the same episode, Siskel threw a fit at him
      Full Metal Jacket is an experimental movie. It's wildly different. The purposeful de-humanization in the first half makes it harder to connect to the characters once they're allowed identifies and personalities again. It really, is not, a good movie.

    Ebert's original Night Of The Living Dead review is a great piece of writing.

    >At this point, the mood of the audience seemed to change. Horror movies were fun, sure, but this was pretty strong stuff. There wasn't a lot of screaming anymore; the place was pretty quiet. When the fire died down, the ghouls approached the truck and ripped apart the bodies and ate them. One ghoul ate a shoulder joint with great delight, occasionally stopping to wipe his face. Another ghoul dug into a nice mess of intestines.

    >The kids in the audience were stunned. There was almost complete silence. The movie had stopped being delightfully scary about halfway through, and had become unexpectedly terrifying. There was a little girl across the aisle from me, maybe nine years old, who was sitting very still in her seat and crying.
