    Oh yeah, you'd think that David Lynch was a real left field choice to direct this, but Jodorowsky would have been like letting Buñuel do a James Bond. And it's not like this was some pipe dream that was quickly abandoned, they had already spent a ton on pre-production, and the involvement of Pink Floyd and H.R. Giger alone would have made this worthwhile. You've probably already seen it, but the Jodorowsky's Dune documentary offers a pretty good overview of this unfinished project and its influence on later films.

    Have you tried getting your hands on any of his comicbooks? Especially the ones he made with Moebius? Those are pieces of art. Funny thing is people who visit my flat first always randomly find the one erotic one they made and I bought it without knowing what it.

    On an unrelated topic. I have just tried watching "Ingrid goes west" and it's the only movie in my life I found revolting as it features the 2 kinds of people I hate more than anything. Vapid instagram stars with empty lives and horrible people who spend all their lives stalking others. I get what the movie is doing but after watching 50 minutes of it I felt so tired I felt like I just finished a marathon.

    I had to cure myself by watching corporate which is a great tv series mocking corporate culture. Anyone who works in an office will appreciate it.

    Not really. The one I mentioned is different kind of an erotic comic. Much less pulpy but I'm not a big comicbook guy anyway. I mostly have Jodorowsky, Sandmans, Charles Burns and a few random ones recommended by friends.

    This has great reviews. I'm hyped.

    Buying erotic shit on random is the only thing people believe in less than bigfoot.

    I am literally giving myself a self five for buying this movie for our country. When it comes out in a little over a month go see it. It's good.

    Watched Den of Thieves last night, really enjoyed it.

    Thought it was a good combo of Heat and Usual Suspects

    I've seen it. It's really enjoyable and Spike is pulling no punches. While there are more quotes from the Maga camp (well they say more stupid shit) he also references that recent Bill Clinton quote he did during the campaign. The audience in Cannes laughed really hard. It also brings the point really hard that we have made less progress than we think.
