I loved the subtitles.  I think they made the whole scene.  I don't
know, but for me, it made the thing *stranger*, as if I were watching
a French movie where midgets were actually speaking distorted English
and saying this like, "Let's Rock!"  God, I don't think it would have
been nearly as good without the subtitles.

Ye gods.  Mr. Boyajian is here.  And here I was thinking that this
reminded me of the discussions of the Watchmen.  And yes, I'd like to
see a Watchmen miniseries directed by Lynch...  Perhaps a regular
show, but only for a season.
