One of my top five movies, I’ve probably watched it 20 times now, and every time is a new experience.
This is the second or third time I’ve watched it on Blu-Ray now, and for the first time ever I figured out that Brian Eno does a lot of the music.
Before discovering that in the credits, I had tweeted earlier about how the music is an under-appreciated tension builder, especially during scenes that are otherwise quiet. There is almost always an underlying sense of foreboding, due in large part to the musical choices.
It always amazes me how many actors are in this film, including a teenage Natalie Portman, Hank Azaria, Tom Noonan, Henry Rollins, Tone Loc!
