Man!!!!... those commercials are fab. Many thanks. And....is that Benizio in the Fitgerald one??
And Indie Guy - like you I was blown away by Naomi Watts when I first saw her in Mulholland Drive. (Are you too young to remember Twin Peaks??) :bounce: And to think that Naomi went on to become Kong's girlfriend. "Sic transit...etc."

Besides being a fragrance junkie I'm a David Lynch junkie also...Love the commercials, haven't seen them for a while.
Maybe Mr. Calvin Klein himself is a David Lynch fan too..?
Thanks very much for the Lynch link. He has always been such an innovator and has certainly changed the face of modern film.
David Lynch — Eagle Scout — was one of the first celebs to have personal site and it was subscription. Which cooled me off a bit.
I was walking around stopping people and asking them what they thought of Mulholland Drive. I heard the DVD is a disappointment. Anyone else?
A look at someone who is so out of touch with their subconscious mind that they split in two. Very similiar to, but much sexier than, Lost Highway. It could take 2 veiwings to figure out what's "really" going on, but when you do, the film makes complete sense. IMHO it is Lynch's masterpiece.

Spooky! What did you guys think about it?
I...uh...just finished watching it a second time (funny how I muttered to myself "this film was crap" the first time I saw the credits begin to roll.) Why did I watch it again? Well, it seemed much more coherent this time (for a Lynch movie), and the first time I was enjoying several Citadelle and tonics while viewing.
But yeah, I liked Mulholland Drive much more the second time. Of course, there were a few erotic scenes in this film that really pushed my buttons. heh-heh.
MD is the most accessible of Lynch's "Lynchian" movies, because you can read a 'rational' narrative into it, while Lost Highway, also brilliant, defies conventional logic - which pissed off movie critics who never read Freud or Lacan . Inland Empire is even "worse," or so I hear.
Anyhow, I wish he had directed "Perfume." Better even Cronenberg. And both should make some shorties about smell. Wouldn't that be cool: A cycle of shorts on smelling, odors, perfume and stench by those two, von Trier, Jeunet, the guy who made Tetsuo...
