I'm looking for an old comment that explained David Lynch's movie The Straight Story was secretly about an abusive alcoholic.

I looked in all the Lynch threads with a "straight story" search, but nothing came up. I remember reading it about this time last year, though I forget if I was reading the archives or the daily posts.
The comment explained that "The Straight Story" is in and of itself an ironic title, and that while Lynch avoids all his Lynchian quirks he still hints at a darker and more ominous story. I thought it was a great comment and it irks me that I haven't been able to find it.
