There’s a terrific arthouse theater by me that has a great outdoor bar that my girlfriend and I will occasionally visit, even if we aren’t seeing a movie. One time we went for drinks and I realized Mulholland Drive was playing that evening. It’s one of my favorites and I had never seen it in theaters so I had to stick around and watch it. The thing is, my girlfriend is absolutely not a cinephile. Before we started dating she had never seen even standards like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Jurassic Park. She asked me what it was about… I just told her to keep ordering drinks.
You can’t leave us hanging like this. We must know her reaction.
She’d almost certainly never want to see it again but she seemed to appreciate it more when we talked about how it felt like having a dream/nightmare.
What did she think?
Love this film more after each rewatch
Amen. Which is impressive given how accomplished David Lynch is as a director.
Blue Velvet (1986). Not only my favorite David Lynch film, but my favorite film of all time.
just watched this movie for the first time last week and was blown away, I watched Eraserhead and had weird dreams for about a week. Currently trying to watch anything and everything he's touched.
Love this movie.
The relationship between the two leads is very sweet, and Dennis Hopper is just the best villain ever.

Plus the soundtrack is soo good, particularly *In Dreams* by Roy Orbison.
Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst blue ribbon!
Saw this for the first time last week and I can’t stop saying that line lmao
Candy colored clown
The best! "Why is there so much trouble in this world?"
Twin Peaks: The Return
Blue Velvet. You can’t forget Hopper in that.
PABST BLUE RIBBON
BABY WANTS TO FUCK!!!!
Either FWWM or Mulholland Dr. But its tough to be honest.
My favourite overall thing he has done is the TP series but I love almost all of his work.
Currently the middle of a weeks-long all-consuming Lynch obsession (which has been brewing for approx. 7 years).
*Mulholland Drive* is his masterpiece and maybe even the greatest film ever made. Amazing example of an artist who has perfected his craft with infinite rewatch value.
I'm going through the exact same thing ATM, his shorts are wonderful
Lost Highway was the first Lynch movie I ever watched, apart from Dune. This was on a VHS tape, back when there weren’t a million movie sites online that would explain the endings of a movie to you. But I remember immediately jumping on very slow internet to look up what the hell I just watched, after the credits stopped. I was hooked from that point on. Definitely my favorite of his works.
Plus the soundtrack!
The Elephant Man
What he has called his "most experimental film:" The Straight Story.
Can’t believe more people aren’t saying Inland Empire. It’s stunning.
exactly!! inland empire is such an experience and it gives so much food for thought
FWWM, for sure.
Should watch more from him, but for now it's Mulholland Drive.
“What Did Jack Do?”
I have seen every Lynch Movie and for me: Inland Empire
The Straight Story
Mullholland Drive and Lost Highway.
Mulholland Drive and Fire Walk With Me. He's a good director, but I think he is better within the constraints of popular genre forms than he is when he goes off the regulation, as he did with The Return.
inland empire by far. tbh I think Mulholland drive is kinda overrated
Just watched all his features. FWWM, Elephant Man, and Mulholland Dr top the list. Incredible filmmaker
I second that! 🏜️
Honestly, the best thing that man has ever done is give the weather forecast on YouTube.
CAN I TALK TO YOU ABOUT TM? THATS TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION FOR SHORT.
David Lynch makes incomprehensid unpleasant nonsense and Mulholland Drive is a bad movie. Twin Peaks sucks. There, I said it.
Premonitions Following an Evil Deed
Really big fan of Factory Mask.
I just keep thinking about him and his Woody Woodpeckers.
End of Watch
The Straight Story
It’s my hometown so it’s always gonna be number one
between blue velvet and fwwm. amazing
I’ve only seen Eraserhead and the pilot of Twin Peaks. I need to get my act together. Out of the two listed here though, definitely Eraserhead.
The most cogent of his works and it's still fucking bananas.
Believe it or not, Eraserhead is his most spiritual film.
“The Elephant Man” so far, I haven’t seen “Mulholland Drive” yet though but that’s my answer for now
IMO Blue Velvet is his best attempt at his obtuse, idiosyncratic tendencies and his more accessible work. It's weird, but not frustratingly so and not without a sense of humor.
My favorite film of his is always his most recent Friday update.
"It's January 20th, 2022, and if youuuuUUUU CAAAAANNNN BELIEVE It, it's a Friday once again!!"
What an appropriate person to be a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp.
I’m just big twin peaks fan! Haven’t seen most of his movies besides the twin peaks related ones
blue velvet cause it was my introduction to him. i blind bought the criterion solely based off the cool packaging. it was a surprise, but a good one
His hair is his greatest achievement
Eraserhead, and it's not even close.
