all by itself John Candy's name being Wink wouldn't have compelled me to post this, but of course he's also the Son of Wilkins...
did i post this already???
did i mention it's a movie about a guy who kills people (feeding the plant) to attain popularity, fame and success.
in MD, the line is "maybe we can see" "buy you a cup of coffee and we can see," and of course in Little Shop Of Horrors the main character's name is Seymour (see more) Krelborn. And the chick he loves wants to live somewhere that's green, and green is color of the last scenes of Inland Empire.
HOW VERY VERY WEIRD!!!!!!!
Oh right forgot to mention... The Plant's name.
Audrey ii of course because the plant is named after the aforementioned chick he loves named Audrey.. and as previously discussed Mulholland Drive was, in its inception, supposed to be a spin off from Twin Peaks about.....
yep... Audrey Horn!!!!!
and then there's that whole pleasant diversion where Wink say's don't take off your clothes and the husband shows up and blows everyone away.
