I finally get to say "they shot this in my neighbourhood!". Parts of it are shot on a boat right outside the northern Norwegian town where I grew up.
I bought the Last Year at Marienbad blu-ray a few years ago and I haven't even taken it out of the plastic yet because I'm afraid when I watch it I'm not going connect with it the way I did when I first saw it fifteen years ago and it's going to tarnish the memory of that initial experience somehow, and that pretty well describes my relationship with movies these days.

Let it blow up your memories. No better film for that.

Norm's one of the greatest there is. He could be in my top 5 standups, I've never made a list. Make sure to check out his new Netflix special if you have access, and his video podcast is back to putting out regular episodes too, this week is Sarah Silverman: Norm Macdonald Live

His delivery is so good. He makes everything funny. I watched a compilation of the video podcast. The joke in the beginning of this killed me:

That trailer is the best movie I've seen so far this year.

I keep hearing that the Paul Thomas Anderson/Daniel Day-Lewis movie is sort of an art-house FIFTY SHADES OF GREY...

This is a film I really, really want to see. More so than Inherent Vice.
Not exactly a great bump to the thread but through a bit of IMDb trawling it appears there's more film shot on PTA's Pathé camera on this one.

Oh, I didn't notice the Beatles quote and I love this song, I was too concentrated on not trying to miss words since I am not used to that accent. I loved that scene. I was surprised to see that Lynch found him on YouTube. He nailed that scene. And I really like James this season. Remember that Shelly says that he is silent since the "accident"...

I loved this episode. The Sarah Palmer scene was a highlight, obviously, but I might have liked Freddie's story even more. "I fear I’ve snapped his Gregory." He clearly broke the guy's neck with his super-powered glove. What I love about Season 3 is you could not have predicted any of this stuff.

Freddie's story also has this fun bit (from EW):

“So I woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head, ran downstairs and had a cup…” Freddie says. He and James laugh – it’s the beginning of the middle section of “A Day in the Life” by the Beatles. I believe it’s the section most often attributed to Paul McCartney — a peppy description of a regular person’s day in the life, coming out of the mist of lysergic Lennon singing “I’d love to turn you on.”

The end of this section of the song, of course, is: “Somebody spoke, and I went into a dream.”

Sarah Palmer "biting back" distinctly reminded me of (Game of Thrones spoiler!) the dog lunging at Ramsay's face and chomping right into his jaw. Only difference is Sarah went a little lower. It was the same kind of sped-up lunge from a side view. Good stuff.

To Sleepless's question... Yes, I think people are a bit hypnotized and sedated by the vortex. And then there is some loss of memory. The same thing happened in South Dakota. In that episode, Gordon comments directly on the memory loss... although interestingly, you can will yourself to recover and hang onto the memory, as he did.

My favorite theory coming out of this episode is that the season will end with an epic fistfight between Dark Cooper and Freddie Sykes.

I don't know who they let upload the episodes on streaming websites but they often make mistakes. It happened twice with Twin Peaks.

But won't most people download the leaked version and watch it anyway?

I watched it and now I don't have to worry about spoilers. I'd recommend people to watch it because it won't be fun to be spoiled. I can't believe how these episodes is getting leaked. I don't remember other big shows getting leaked it the same extent that GoT has.
