I'm not a fan of aging flesh, my own included. So the sight of Harry Dean Stanton repeatedly washing his armpits each morning? Not pretty. Actually I'm not much of a Stanton fan either, so since he's the lead character here--not my idea of entertainment. Yes the film mostly looks gorgeous, when we aren't focused on Stanton's pathetically thin, age-spotted limbs. But the editing is fun and the music is great. But sorry I'm not a fan of David Lynch either, so didn't much enjoy his supporting role. He should stick to directing, not a great actor. And really--the chain smoking? Made me sick. I didn't accept Stanton's character as either a wise, interesting or heroic man, so the whole enterprise left me cold.
