Never mind mosquitoes!  I watched the movie for a second time last night and yet again a towel appeared from nowhere.  That's the second time in two days.  I watched the movie two days ago and the towel came from nowhere - then I watched it last night and the same thing happened again!  It's a safe bet, if I watch it again tonight, that damn towel will put itself under that silly girl's bottom!  What was the script supervisor thinking?

How often do I have to watch that movie before the mystery of the towel can be solved?

But talk about a movie made in casting!  Goodman is just undiluted talent - and under-recognised as such.  His performance just fills the screen and makes the movie!

Yes! Again i watched "Barton fink" movie. I feel mosquito pov given above shot. But some shot i don't think mosquito pov. Fpr instance Barton call Audrey then he fell sleep, there is a high angle slow pushing going on, suddenly door knocking sound hear then he wake up. I can't figure out this shot purpose. I feel mosquito also one of the character for this movie! Did you really think mosquito pov should be shoot.

For the mosquito I think it was obvious why... a mosquito POV, maybe! The leger? Just to create some tension I suspect. What did you feel?
