Woa, I can't believe I'm the first person to respond to this after all these years.
I'm totally with you on the mind control thing. At the beginning of the film when that old lady ("new neighbor") visits Nicki (Laura Dern) she
tells "an old tale"...
"A little boy went out to play..."
Then she does the variation.
"A little girl
went out to play..."
I think she was hypnotizing Nicki (Dern).
"For instance, if today were tomorrow, you wouldn't even remember that you owed on an unpaid bill..."
That movie is amazing.
The end of the movie (the credits scene with Nina Simone's "Sinner Man") is a celebration of being free from the mind control.
David Lynch filmed a bunch of cool stuff, stuck to some common themes, spliced it together as one film, and there does seem to be a story in there.
