Untitled[edit]

The name Lindelof is most likely Swedish (spelled Lindelöf and pronunced 'lind-eh-lirv' with silent 'r', in Sweden). Is it possible that he's got Swedish ancestry?

He is a Jew. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.222.3.5 (talk) 20:12, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

He's of both Swedish and Jewish descent. His father's name was David Lindelöf. /Slarre (talk) 11:36, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Technically you could be both Swedish and Jewish, of course. As an example, take Erland Josephson, one of Ingmar Bergman's favorite actors. // Jens Persson (194.17.3.64 (talk) 17:53, 27 October 2010 (UTC))

Is Damonn Lindelof gay, i noticed he has his left ear pierced? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.129.74.141 (talk) 16:34, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

It's the right ear that people used to say would signal that you're gay but these days it really has no bearng. groovygower (talk) 19:48, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

New Alien Prequels[edit]

I wonder why no one has entered the fact Lindelof is the script writer for the two new Ridley Scott Alien prequels? Answers on a postcard please.Twobells (talk) 21:12, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

Unnecessary entry[edit]

There's a line in this entry saying that Lindelof has a reputation as a writer who introduces meaningless, confusing plot elements. This is, of course, debatable, but the thing that made me take notice is that the citation has absolutely nothing to do with this claim at all. To me, due to this, either the citation is a mistake or the line was added in bad faith. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:CE07:7190:452C:6658:86B6:36A5 (talk) 02:44, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Controversy/Reputation[edit]

This article should have a section on Lindelof's reputation for making open-ended plots, as it's a pretty big part of his image. He is known for stringing together mysteries and puzzles in his plots, to the point where no logical explanation is possible. He will even admit this himself. It is a pretty distinct writing trait of his. Whereas other movies, like Blade Runner or Inception, have mysteries that spark debate because multiple explanations are possible, Lindelof's movies generally spark debate because no explanation is possible. In other words, there is nothing substantial in his writing - no truth to discover. This questionable style has provoked a huge backlash on the internet. While some people would call it lazy or intellectually vacant, a small minority of fans seem to like it. I can see both sides.

I completely agree with this. However, our opinions aren't sufficient to make this edit. I think this "reputation" is worth adding, if you can find reputable source(s) that say it. You and I saying it aren't enough. 67.91.184.189 (talk) 18:19, 1 July 2014 (UTC) Ferocious Badger
