Short FIlms

Short films I've seen by Lynch ranging from grotesque to creepy to pretentiously inaccessible.

I've yet to watch these, but hope to catch up with them soon.

Love him or hate him I think we can all concede that Lynch follows his own vision-- and I respect him for that. One of the things that has always struck me about David Lynch is the way he treats film as a true visual art form that can carry the vivid imagery and vast subconscious subtext the same way a painting, drawing or other more traditional piece of visual art can.

I'd recommend that you watch The Straight Story, though it might seem too normal compared to the other films. Lynch is very fascinating and surprisingly versatile director. Nice list!

I've only seen 3 of his films, and Blue Velvet is my favorite as well. I'll have to look into more of his work, and if I now find I appreciate it more than I used to perhaps I'll give Eraserhead another chance.

I guess I'm one of the very few who dislike Lost Highway. For some reason I never cared about "solving" it, and just found it to be weird for the sake of being weird. Yet, I love Mulholland Dr. and Blue Velvet.

A bit surprised that you haven't seen The Elephant Man. Well, you ought to know what to do. ;)

I love Wild at Heart & Blue Velvet! Haven't seen Mulholland Drive yet, even though I got it on DVD. I also haven't seen Lost Highway or Eraserhead, which I really want to see. :)

@ drugs- Thanks! Versatile is a word I've heard used a bit with Lynch, though I've mostly seen his more abstract/mind-fuck movies and not much of his more straight-forward narrative stuff. I hope to sit down with The Straight Story soon. (Heh, kind of an ironic title for Lynch, given much of his body of work!!!)

@ the giraffe- Much of Lynch is quite obviously the kind of thing you have to be in the right mood/mindset for, so I hope you do visit more of his stuff and find yourself enjoying it. Eraserhead is certainly one that can't be watched just any old time, but I really enjoyed the tone and strange, weird, deliberate, nightmarish seductiveness of it all.

@Bml93-- Mulholland Drive is the better film for sure, but it's interesting that you (and many critics, actually) enjoyed that one so well, but didn't have much good to say about Lost Highway. *shrugs* I'll get on it soon I hope!

@ Orlok-- a bit surprised actually that you haven't caught up with those titles yet. I hope you enjoy them soon. I will say that they're a bit darker all in all than either Blue Velvet or Wild at Heart. Take that for what it's worth...

It will drive you crazy!! haha :)

Inland Empire is somed up in one piece of dialog from it.

You forgot about Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me! It's criminally under-rated!

My top 4: 1. Blue Velvet
2. Mulholland Drive
3. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
4. Lost Highway
