Blue Tomorrows

Nearly a decade before INLAND EMPIRE, Satoshi Kon gives us in Perfect Blue images of a woman in trouble, a bloody screwdriver, personal surveillance, the complete collapse of reality and fiction, of performer and performance, and reunion and blinding light as a way out.

Perfect Blue is on my watch list, if it's anything like Inland Empire, I ought to bump it up the queue!

Sidney Lumet's The Fugitive Kind (1959) is also a possible influence on Lynch, the bird(seen in Blue Velvet & Twin Peaks intro), the snakeskin jacket(seen in Wild at Heart)

Definitely bump it up the list, Chris.

That's really interesting about The Fugitive Kind. I haven't seen it yet but I'll keep that in mind when I get around to it.
