About Rocky Giovinazzo's talk of the evil of fire recurring in TP, I
think it is interesting to note that Lynch uses this motif in "Wild At
Heart" and "Blue Velvet" as well. He seems to be bent on getting some
message across to us. Maybe something like "Fire is the passion within
us all. And fire is the destructive evil in the world. Thus, the hearts
of mankind are innately evil." Maybe not, that just occured to me. It
doesn't jive with Lynch's perpetual attitude of optimism in real life.
Perhaps this is just his release of his "dark side".
