One I didn’t write about this month was the documentary Walking the Camino, following several people taking the month-long “Camino de Santiago” journey in Spain, on foot.  It’s often interesting but unremarkable as a piece of filmmaking.  It doesn’t dig very deep.  I also watched 14 shorts by the provocative Richard Kern.  They ranged from adolescent bores (You Killed Me First, The Bitches) to gripping expressions of rage and dark desires (Woman at the Wheel, Right Side of My Brain).  Excellent music on most of them, often by one of my favorite musicians, Jim Thirwell (a.k.a. Clint Ruin, a.k.a. Foetus).  However, most of the month my lady and I have been revisiting “Twin Peaks”.  A remarkable show that turned into utter garbage after Lynch was forced to resolve the central mystery.  We’re slogging through the dreary doldrums of season 2, reaching for the light at the end of the tunnel when the series gets good again for the last couple of episodes.  And then a much-anticipated rewatch of Fire Walk With Me.
