“Out of the darkness, comes this, kind of like, strangest dream, because I had never seen an adult woman naked. And she had beautiful pale white skin and she was completely naked, and I think her mouth was bloodied. And she kind of came strangely, walking strangely across Shoshone, and came into Park Circle Drive, and it seemed like she was sort of like a giant, and she came closer and closer, and my brother started to cry, something was bad wrong with her, and I don’t know what happened. I think she sat down on a curb, crying, but it was very mysterious, like we were seeing something otherworldly, and I wanted to do something for her, but I was little. I didn’t know what to do.” Third Criterion Haul from the Barnes & Noble Criterion Sale. “Ugetsu Monogatari” and “David Lynch: The Art of Life” blu-rays. I’ve been waiting forever for the Criterion Collection to release “Ugetsu” on blu-ray. It’s an extraordinary Japanese ghost story. It’s both haunting and beautiful. The director Kenji Mizoguchi is not as well known as Akira Kurosawa, but he’s had a wide array of great films like “Sansho the Bailiff”, “The Life of Oharu”, and “Ugetsu”. I love David Lynch and he’s one of my all-time favorite directors. When I first heard that there was a new documentary on David Lynch I was ecstatic, but when I saw it in the cinema I thought the film was missing something… more on David Lynch. It was mainly on his art and not a whole lot on his life.
