okay, i just re-watched this movie FINALLY last nite for the first time since the theatres and enjoyed it a lot more now that i had an idea of what was going on, and it did really seem to make sense. i cant believe i didnt figure it all out before. but, what i'm wondering, is if anybody has any idea about a few things.
-What had been filmed for the tv pilot, and what was re-shot or added after it was not picked up and decided to be made into a film? What sorts of changes were made (other than obviously the nudity), to the story?
-Also i noticed that the production really did seem more tv show, than a theatrical film, i'm a little surprised as to how much praise this movie gets due to its pretty simplistic style. What was the budget on this bastard anyway?
-And my girlfriend had to discuss this movie in school and her teacher had said something about the creepy guy in the alley being one of the central figures of the show if it had been picked up. some sort of devil type figure playing with the fates of the people in the town. anybody heard anything like that?
i read through the mullholland threads and didnt see any explanation for any of this, so does anybody want to help shed some light on this, (macguffin)?
