does david lynch still keep his head?

In his 1996 essay, David Lynch Keeps His Head, David Foster Wallace describes his three day visit to the set of Lost Highways. In the course of the essay, he describes his opinions of the success or failure of previous David Lynch projects, but did he ever comment on, or publish a review of Lost Highways after the film was released?

Film recomendations are SERIOUS BUSINESS

I'd like some good recommendations for films that revolve around something being serious business. The more obscure that something is, and the more the move generates unexpected dramatic interest in it the better.

Film recommendations set in the early 1900's?

After a recent trip to Walt Disney World in Florida and inspired by the Main Street USA part of the park, I'm suddenly urged to immerse myself in films set in the early 20th century, preferably made in the 50s/60s/70s. The big one that comes to mind is The Music Man, but can anyone help me find any others? Disney flicks are a plus!

Films set at grand country estates, please, Jeeves?

I'm in the mood for films set in days-gone-by at grand country estates, particularly those that center around (or at least include scenes of) large groups of guests. Examples that immediately spring to mind (and which I loved) include Gosford Park, The Remains of the Day, La R├Ęgle du Jeu, etc. I ring the bell for the butler and ask for more!

Better the second time around?

Can you think of any re-makes that were superior to the original (or even just as good?) The originals of The Browning Version, The Winslow Boy, ...just as examples, were superior to their re-makes. The first Sabrina was wildly better than the later version. Any suggestions for films whose remakes are well worth watching--or actually better than the original?
