    hehe, that is partially what im doing.

    I already watched mixed scenes with commentary on and read Roberta´s book so I have a partial understanding of the plot but I´m still not all the way there. I would say I know but if you asked me to explain I would have trouble :)

    Today I´m going to watch the full movie with commentary today.

    Or being told what to think about it.

    I do find that commentaries give away to much information. Part of the reason I love film is trying to understand them and make your own conclusions about what they mean.

    I have watched this film 3 times now and each time I pick up on something new.

    Yeah, I loved the film, but still haven't bought the DVD because I'm not sure if I even want to listen to the commentary.

    Unlike some people, I think the film stands on its own without any source material or additional investigation.

    Everytime i sit down to watch this film i think, "right, i know whats going on in this film now, i'm just gonna watch it" and then i think eh????

    I think i know what it's all about and then another thing happening i didn't pick up on before throws my thoughts into disarray.

    After watching it several times i feel i actually understand the film, although i'm not entirely sure why everyone is crying at the end or is happy. As by rights time has re-set itself and no-one should have a clue whats going on.

    I'm still a little clueless about that fat asian chick though.

    Gamesguru: All I can really make out about the asian girl is
    that she fancied donnie
    , apart from that just that she got picked on because she was fat ...

    A true example of a value-for-money DVD - you just keep going back to it. If you like this kind of puzzle try "Mulholland Drive" next.
