It's a mixed bag, but for the most part I like him.

My favorite is not listed, but it's Lost Highway.  I saw this in the theater and really enjoyed it.

Mulholland Drive is probably his most mainstream and "normal" movie, and I enjoyed that.

Blue Velvet and Dune are OK.

I hate Eraserhead and Elephant Man and I'm glad I didn't see them before his later works or I probably wouldn't have given him a chance.

I never got into Twin Peaks.

I've only seen Blue Velvet,  Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, and Wild At Heart.

I don't remember much about the latter two except Laura Dern raving about Nick Cage's cock in WAH. 

Blue Velvet I've seen many times and actually like. Dennis Hopper is great. 

Lost Highway I don't even attempt to make any sense out of. Patricia Arquette is smoking hot and Robert Blake is creepy as fuck. Aside from Patricia and the other hot chick getting fucked, best scene is Robert Loggia and what he does to the driver tailgating him.

I thought Wild At Heart was good, despite having two hacks, in Laura Dern and Nicholas Cage, in the lead roles.  The supporting cast was superb, however: Diane Ladd, Willem Dafoe, Harry Dean Stanton, and Isabella Rossellini.  There's a pivotal scene in the movie, where Dern and Cage come across a car accident in the middle of the night and a girl dies in front of them, that's one of the most gripping few minutes of film I've ever seen.

All five of the movies listed were long and boring. Blue Velvet would be best of the worst.

The Straight Story is one of my favourite movies of all time. Every time I watch I like it more. I think TV and movies are getting really grim these days, which makes this uplifting film more of a joy to watch as the years go by. Having said that, it's the least Lynchian of his movies by a long shot.

Mulholland Drive and Elephant Man are both excellent. I thought Lost Highway was unwatchable though.

Blue Velvet was a great movie with cult-like following. Great characters.

Mullholland Drive was too odd for me. Wasn’t getting it.

The rest I have not seen.

Same here with Mulholland Drive. I don't remember too much about it, but I do recall being intrigued at first and then at some point it totally lost me. All I remember was it had Naomi Watts and a cowboy character

I've only seen Blue Velvet, and I enjoyed it.


The scene when Frank takes the kid to "the party" is one of the most intense scenes ever in movie. It fucking freaked me out. I don't know what it was but the freaky people and Frank's insane violence all rolled into that few minutes...FUCK.

Only seen Blue Velvet and Dune.

Dune I saw not long after watching Flash Gordon. Dune came off VERY badly by comparison. Flash Gordon was campy fun, almost self-aware with its cartooniness; Dune was pompously portentious yet looked utter shit. Star Wars had changed the game with CGI and FX but nobody had told Lynch - the riding a sandworm bit particularly egregious - but it was so bloody po-faced. All quasi-religious mixed with Mediaeval Gladiator Chic because that's what we will all be doing in 10,000 years time.

It was also surprisingly childish. The plot is pared down to simplicity with bits added on, we have loads of whispered thought-exposition but for the most part it is not really needed (the messiah bit is so shoehorned in as to be an extraneous detail that you don't need). Whereas the space-travel thing does need explanation and doesn't really get it.

The sets remind me of Dolly Parton's self-deprecating quote about it needing a lot of money to look so trashy. They're obviously expensive, entire panoramic rooms created out of gilt and rouche, but why then skimp on the bits that you actually see? The blue eyes for instance look painted on, the bald wig/hair/thing that the nun equivalents have looks glued on.

And the acting? Kyle McLachlan did not make me want to follow him as a new messiah, he came across as an ineffective insurance salesman. Most of them were camping it up to the hilt, only Patrick Stewart and the weird girl at the end really seemed to work as characters.

I think its effect can be gauged by there being loads of possible sequels. And zero were made.

And I can't get by BV is meant to be a masterpiece. Indeed the absurdity of the plot is set out just by summarizing it. Boy finds ear in a field and cop's daughter tells him about a woman in a flat. So he decides to break into it and stalk her. She's beaten up by the chap who has kidnapped her child and bought the other cop off. lolwut? It's beautifully shot, especially the Peeping Tom bits, but the best thing about it was the sountrack, gave it a trippy feel part of the time. Masterpiece though? No.

I need to give Mulholland Drive a go though, it has such good reviews. Maybe the problem is I saw Dune and BV so long after they came out so I didn't get the full original effect of their impact.
