5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect jeans, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've never tried skinny jeans before, so I thought I'd give these a go. They are very comfortable and easy to move in, due to the elasticity of the material. They seem very good quality and really are an excellent price. Anyway, I have now ordered several more pairs, as I am so happy the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Performance art, 3 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a huge fan of Ghostworld I sought this film out because it was written and directed by the same pairing. For me, it completely lives up to the standards set by the former movie, and shares that cynical, witty and thought-provoking tone. As a past art school student I can testify to the authentic nature of this film's depiction. There is a fine line between realism and parody, and they seem to get this exactly right, so it plays as both, simultaneaously. Some great performances from the leads. Malkovich is hilarious as the embittered, pretentious art teacher and reminded me of his comic role in the Coen brother's 'Burn after reading'. The film raises some important questions about art, and there is an interesting subtext surrounding the significant ending. I would highly recommend this film. Anybody who loved Ghostworld will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent little machine, 13 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a cheap replacement for my last recorder (which had it's programme guide discontinued). I much prefer this machine. It's just so simple to use and understand. It is reliable and efficient. You can resume playing a recording from where you stopped it. It's perfect for viewing and recording freeview programmes. I've had it a couple of weeks and cannot see any faults atall so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars visionary perceptions, 9 Jan. 2004
These three films are probably the best examples of lynch's intuitively formed cinema. Through his love of the medium and obvious concerns about humanity, lynch has gradually honed a vision that not only deals with age old spiritual matters, but reshapes them for the postmodern world. With obvious debts to Kafka, Bergman, Hitchcock and even Shakespeare apparent in this collection, lynch still comes across as unique. Even if you manage to decipher the meanings hidden under layers of symbolism, you'll find that you knew them already. This is due to the attention given to mood and feel of image and sound used in a way that simulates sensory perception. These three films are truely cinematic experiences that internally reasess the viewers connection to the world. Absurd, hillarious, disturbing, entertaining, insightful, erotic and utterly superb.
