well since BLUE VELVET is my favorite movie i guess i'll go with it. Really though there's nothing Lynch has done that i haven't liked to some degree. He's one of my top 3 favorite directors.

The Elephant Man is one of the best films of all time, so this tops my list ahead of Blue Velvet

His best is probably BLUE VELVET, but my personal favorite (and the one I voted for) is THE STRAIGHT STORY.

Probably a tie between Lost Highway and Mulholland Dr. for me.
I'll vote for Lost Highway.

I voted Mulholland Dr. but I do love Blue Velvet and even though it makes no sense, Lost Highway.

Eraserhead is a very interesting oddity. Can't say I really liked it yet am captivated every time I see it.

Some of the Way over the top performances in Wild at Heart kind of ruin that film for me even though I still enjoy it on that crazy Lynchian level.


Actually, now that I think about it, the only Lynch film I truly don't like is Inland Empire.

My favorite was Blue Velvet for many years, but I'm beginning to think Mulholland Dr. is the superior film.

Ditto.

I've seen Dune much more than the others (and own about 7 different versions of it on DVD), but still count Lost Highway as my favorite.

A part of me wants to say Mulholland Dr., but another wants to say INLAND EMPIRE.

Mulholland Drive for me.

Seems to combine the themes of many of his earlier films into this one - and it's done perfectly.

Eraserhead completely due to psilocybin. What a combo.

Mulholland Dr. is the best film of the decade (thus far). An easy pick for me.

I have to say Dune. I've watched most of his movies, and own most of those on disc, but Dune is the only one I've watched over and over again.

Shit, I didn't realize it was asking for the Best DL movie. I would probably go with Mullholland Dr. in that case.
