Incredibly weird film.

I have seen it several times and still find it confusing.

But the atmosphere of it is amazing.

And it has one of my top scariest moments of all time in a film.

No gore or anything like that.

Just a haunting build up and resolution to an unnerving moment

I think it holds up well and is worth the watch!

Enough to make me stay up and watch tonight. It better be worth it... the scarey bit that is

I love both Donnie Darko and Mulholland Drive. All I can say is: pay attention to the last third or so of MD, because that's when the story, um... gets real. Good luck with your good taste in films.

one of the reasons i did not watch it is i did not like twin peaks at all.
lost highway and eraserhead were the # though

I remember seeing this in the theater and I wasn't impressed. Loved Blue Velvet. Loved Eraserhead. Just didn't like Mulholland Drive. For me, I felt it was trying too hard to be edgy. Granted, this was during it's theater release and I haven't seen it again since.

I love this film.

Love David Lynch, and a lot of his films, and this one in particular influenced the short I wrote and directed in college.

I thought I understood it the first few times I watched it, but later on reading more about it I got some of it wrong.

Watch it, dude, it's definitely not dated at all. If you like other lynch stuff you'd dig this.

I know exactly the moment you're talking about (the cafe scene). That's the influence of my student film in college.

a reply to: TinySickTears If you like "get" David Lynch watch it.
Then watch it every 10 years or so to understand it even better.

Also watch his short film "Rabbits" made a while back It's out on the webz.
(Tell me what you think.)

For me it was one of those pictures that keep you wondering'' what the hell is going on but then when it ends you still don't know but it no longer matters because all the stuff was so entertaining along the way to a resolution that may or may not have resolved anything.

I went to school in West LA and interfaced just enough with the LA 'thing' and Hollywood types to understand where the film comes from i.e. a different spin on the industry aspirations and the counterpoint of phonines, viciousness and bleakness.

Lynch barely hides his contempt of the industry and it's casualties with thin allegory.

I thought the Al Pachino movie about Phil Spector was an odd parallel spirit film. There is a point where Pacino's Spector gives quite a speech about the myriad show business wannabes so achingly close to what seems to be infinite wealth, power, and fame. They are willing to sell their souls. It is all visible through the thin glass ceiling, holding them in thrall, but all of it as untouchable and unreachable as a distant galaxy for virtually all of them but the few lottery winners.

I bought the DVD and watched it.............OMG. The next day at work my brain was still trying to understand what I had seen. I spoke to the person I work with about it and told them I didn't get what the film was about...he said bring it in I will work it out. He took it home and when he returned it to me he was shaking his head...I thought he had not managed to get through it...I said Oh did you not watch it....he said yes but I don't get it..lol. When I was leaving work my boss said what is that film you have with you...I told him and he asked what is it about....I said I have no idea! He said he would take a look..when he returned it to me, he was shaking his head, again I thought Oh he didn't manage to get through it, I said did you not watch it.............he said yes but I don't get it...Lol. I asked if he felt that he had wasted 2 hours of his life and he said no it was amazing and he really enjoyed it.
Trust me when I say....it is one of the best films I have ever seen.....even before I found out what was really going on. I eventually went on Amazon to see the reviews to find out more about it.
I recommend that you watch the film ...do not go and find out anything about it first...watch it.
I want to watch it now....but I lent it to someone and no longer have it.

Next time I see it in a charity shop I will be buying it again.

Yup, absolutely you should watch it. It is one of my highly recommended films. Let us know what you think after you watch it.

If you ever see where Gravity's Rainbow is being made into a film by David Lynch, get your affairs in order because that will signal the end of Life as we know it.

I liked it the first time I watched it, but I was left a little confused as to what the hell I just watched.
It took a third viewing before I connected all the dots.
Lynch has the artistic cajones to challenge the viewer. Good stuff.

'The Straight Story.'
A much skimmed over Lynch film.
It made my eyes get wet.
Here's the trailer.

The full version is not hard to find online.
It is somewhat out of character for Lynch, but very well crafted and emotionally touching.

Lynch fan, but couldn't get into this 1.
I see he brought back the scary homeless looking guys from twin peaks

Yes, that's a beautiful Lynch film.

When I'm in particular spot or mood, I put this on.
