As long as you liked it a couple of other things to support my theory that I left out because of length

Spoiler
The movie opens with seedy Hollywood and/or gangster types talking on the phone saying "The girl is still missing" and then they call Dianes house (you can tell by the red lamp shown as it rings with no answer). This is to put in your mind about Rita missing but when they discover Diane she has been dead for days so I think Diane is the one missing (and by extension Betty/Rita) because she has already committed suicied. At one point in the movie Betty is in a robe and pours a cup of coffee and walks to the couch and looks over and sees Rita nude. But when she steps over the couch to set her drink (previously coffee) it is now a glass of bourbon and she is wearing a pair of Daisy Duke denim shorts and starts to make out with Rita. There is also a scene where she is masturbating wearing the same shorts. One other time I think Lynch is hinting they are the same girl is when the director sees "Betty" act brilliantly looks into the camera and says "This is the girl" and when Diane is with the "hitman" it is the same shot and the same line "This is the girl" when he is showing him Carmilla/Rita photo. He asks "Who is she?" and he says it's just a head shot, everybody has one and they are all the same or something to that effect. Finally just before Rita puts the key in the box and disappears (which I think is the actual self inflicted gunshot, she first notices Betty is just gone for some reason and calls to her with no answer and then opens the box and it falls to the floor empty and Rita is gone. I think since Diane really only wants to kill the "Rita" part of her life that is who actually puts the key in the box but of course you can't kill a part of yourself, its an all or nothing deal"

I've reviewed this movie before here, but I watched it again w/ my 2 teens today & was just gob smacked again. Not only is this my favorite zombie film, it's in my top 5 favorite films of all time. The human interaction in Train just blows my mind & I found myself sobbing like a baby again, during the movie's final 10 minutes. Just fantastic! & I'm dreading the American remake!
I watched this on your recommendation and normally won't even give a movie that I have to read subtitles a chance but this was really good. I give it my highest possible rating for a movie that I have to read subtitles 8/10

Thanks, T. I'm very glad you liked it! Didn't that little girl just melt your heart.

Searching (2018) - 6/10

It was decent. Just too busy and too much going on with all the social media stuff.

Bohemian Rhapsody - 7/10 - Was good but felt like a very sterilized version of events. Also was more the Freddie Mercury story than the Queen story.

Glass 7.5/10 went to the Alamo 3 movie marathon on Saturday. I liked it, was fun to see the two movies interact. Went in a direction in the last 3rd of the movie was not expecting it to.

Mandy - 8/10

I watched this one based on Hellboy’s and a couple other forum members’ recommendations. Very different and pretty original, I really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recommendation guys.
