I considered it the 'Travails of a Blond in Hollywood'. Not your standard narrative scheme. Last Ann Miller screen performance. She is outstanding and worth the running time.
David Lynch. "Huh" is a good response. From what I have read, it was supposed to be a TV show. My fave part is the "Illandro" song, by Rebekah del Rio.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrC3Bf-CvHU
i've watched it 3 times, kenneth...same reaction.

You have to watch it this way - think of the entire first part as the blonde's fantasy - literally a dream. After she "wakes up," that's when you learn the real story. I think it's actually just a very sad story of heartbreak.
Same reaction. The day after I saw it, I asked my most movie-knowledgeable friend what the hell I'd just seen. He wasn't v helpful.Lynch Monster's comment above is the generally accepted explanation.I've never been a fan of David Lynch. This movie didn't change that opinion.
