Audience Reviews for Industrial Symphony No. 1: The Dream of the Broken Hearted
It's too stagebound to really work as a piece of film, and there's not enough sense of the theatrical space or continuity to work as well as it might have as a document of a live performance, but as a collection of songs by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch performed by Julee Cruise it's beautiful. It's probably a better album than a film, but there are some striking visual and dramatic moments as well.
Essentially a long-form music video for Julee Cruise, but I love Julee Cruise (at least, her work with Angelo Badalamenti) so that's fine with me. Lynch creates a dreamlike/nightmarish atmosphere in a single-stage setting. It's a little slow to get going, but comes to a fever pitch around the halfway point, goes into a wonderful sequence during "Rockin' Back Inside My Heart", a bunch of crazy shit happens and it then tapers off into a kind of slumber. Laura Dern and Nicolas Cage make a brief appearance at the beginning, perhaps playing their roles from Wild at Heart, but this is a lot more enjoyable than that irritating film.
Here is another strange, haunting, and beautiful work from the mind of David Lynch. This time, though, it's live and on stage. The only thing I don't like about this program is the introduction, which features Laura Dern and Nicolas Cage in a repetitive dialogue exchange, the whole purpose of which is him breaking up with her. Once it goes into the actual stage show, though, it's brilliance through and through as Julee Cruise floats and sings as the dream self of the brokenhearted woman. Strange occurrances abound. Great music by Angelo Badalamenti and the angelic voice of Julee Cruise help make this a fantastic experience.
