It would be great if the entire film came all at once. But it comes, for me, in fragments. That first fragment is like the Rosetta stone. It's a hopeful puzzle piece.
In Blue Velvet, it was red lips, green lawns, and the song - Bobby Vinton's version of "Blue Velvet". The next thing was an ear lying in a field. And that was it.
You fall in love with the first idea, that tiny little piece. And once you've got it, the rest will come in time.
(Rosetta Stone: a key to previously unattainable understanding. A stone found near Rosetta in Egypt, with a trilingual inscription from the second century BC in hieroglyphic and demotic Egyptian, and Greek, important in the deciphering of hieroglyphs.)
