Monster Night Panic Trail

It's best not to get too caught up in the meaning of the event, or to figure out how to explain it, or you'll be too scared to let it happen. Psychology destroys the mystical and some magical qualities. It can be relegated to a neurosis and other things, but its current name and definition deprive it of the mystique and the vast and limitless possibilities of experience.
——David Lynch's

previous work was "The Wilderness of My Heart". Yesterday, I finally finished watching another of his works, "The Night of the Demon". It is natural to be difficult and obscure, but the strange thing is that every time When I see drowsiness, the plot of the film can always suddenly become ups and downs, making you feel refreshed all at once. Pornography and violence are definitely exciting elements that cannot be tolerated.
Obviously I couldn't fully understand it, but I still watched the 2+ hour movie with great interest. The unreal and the real are intertwined in the film, there are not many characters, it seems ordinary, but it is complicated. It seems that the story is closely linked, but it doesn't make sense if you think about it carefully. During the period, suspense constantly appeared and needed to be solved, but David Lynch's consistent gorgeous pictures, shocking images, fashionable music, and fancy movie skills all made people addicted. You are eager to know the answer and keep following the plot, but after reading it, you find that there are some questions that even the director himself may not be able to answer, leaving only a bunch of specious clues.
What impressed me most was the use of the element "fire". In the later work "The Wilderness of My Heart", it became more and more exquisite and vivid, and the ending also changed from absurd to hopeful rebirth. The change in the desire and pursuit of freedom and light is unknown. Not the reason it won the award.

    "The Wild Trail" is another starting point for David Lynch, who tells a story, but it can also be said to be two stories, or even no story, their boundaries are so clear and so blurred; similarly, reality The same is true for the boundary between the world and the imaginary world. The ghost of the imaginary world is realised and disturbs the real world, making the real world illusory, inheriting David Lynch's past preferences, which is also a deceived and seduced.

    Ten normal people can't answer a question asked by a fool. If this "fool" could make a movie, it's probably his name - David Lynch
