three films that beg for interpretation, but probably don’t need interpretation

1. The Shining – Bob Ager makes a good case that it’s really a commentary on Native American genocide.

2. Mulholland Drive – Lynch is an impressionist, so you don’t really need to make it all work, but Alan Shaw’s essay seems to make good points.

3. Prometheus – I don’t have a favorite and I think that you shouldn’t read too much into anything co-written by the dude who wrote Lost, but here are a few. Personally, I always tilt towards a Lawrence of Arabia type of framing.
