Re: Best David Lynch Movie

Mulholland Drive is still my favorite. I don't think I've seen another movie that "Got inside a characters head" or worked with dream theory anywhere near as well. Best version of Wizard of Oz

Re: Best David Lynch Movie

Mulholland Drive isnít all that open to interpretation. Lynch set up a solvable puzzle. And asked people to figure it out. He even put a list of clues with the dvd insert.

After you understand the basic concept, I suppose the details between dream and reality are fun to think about.

The new season of Twin Peaks wasnít all that painful to decipher either. Though I remember being lost on the tea kettle and Jeffries stuff.

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.
10 years later and I still have the same opinion. Mulholland Dr., Blue Velvet, and Lost Highway still rank 1. 2. and 3. for me. I havenít seen LH since the late 90s so I wonder if my opinion of it will have changed in the last 20 years or so.

I donít have Showtime so I still havenít seen the new Twin Peaks series but I loved the original.
