Which is why it's so great. I always feel weird ranking it among his greatest films, but it's such a beautiful, humane and touching but not saccharine and melodramatic film. That bar conversation with the other veteran always makes me cry.

I'm reading Martin Aston's Facing the Other Way: The Story of 4AD right now and apparently Lynch wanted Cocteau Twins to appear in a prom scene in Blue Velvet as the prom band and perform Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren." They agreed to do it, but Buckley's estate wanted $20,000 to license the song and Lynch just couldn't afford it. The entire scene was scrapped. Of course, their version of the song [or, perhaps more accurately, This Mortal Coil's version of the song] later appeared over a scene in Lost Highway. I'm not sure if the price came down or Lynch's music budget went up.

I have. I think I still have VHS recordings of them all in my basement. I don't remember much about them but my neglect of them in the years since would seem to suggest that they weren't all that compelling.flyonthewall2983 wrote:Has anyone here watched American Chronicles?
