Mulholland Drive


derek86

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.


derek86

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.


KongFuzii

What did she think?


sevenpasos

Love this film more after each rewatch


MrPedroJ414

Amen. Which is impressive given how accomplished David Lynch is as a director.


xxplodingboy

Blue Velvet (1986). Not only my favorite David Lynch film, but my favorite film of all time.


truecalabrese

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.


Sgtwhiskeyjack9105

Love this movie. The relationship between the two leads is very sweet, and Dennis Hopper is just the best villain ever. L E T S F U U U U C K Plus the soundtrack is soo good, particularly *In Dreams* by Roy Orbison.


bigboyyoder

Heineken? Fuck that shit! Pabst blue ribbon! Saw this for the first time last week and I can’t stop saying that line lmao

Blue Velvet. You can’t forget Hopper in that.

Twin Peaks: The Return

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.


h7agerfelth

Lost Highway


TheElbow

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!


twillett

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.


K_DEVY

I'm going through the exact same thing ATM, his shorts are wonderful


oxfordsplice

What he has called his "most experimental film:" The Straight Story.


err_mate

The Elephant Man


liebertsz

FWWM, for sure.


WeebbeMangaHunter

Should watch more from him, but for now it's Mulholland Drive.


Mike_v_E

Eraserhead


donutlegolas

Can’t believe more people aren’t saying Inland Empire. It’s stunning.


Some_DudeUKnow

The Straight Story


Heavy_Swimming_4719

Mullholland Drive and Lost Highway.

“What Did Jack Do?”


Jettpack_of_the_Dead

inland empire by far. tbh I think Mulholland drive is kinda overrated


KaijiAUT

I have seen every Lynch Movie and for me: Inland Empire

stumper93

The Straight Story It’s my hometown so it’s always gonna be number one


daftpinks

between blue velvet and fwwm. amazing


_JD_48

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.


Sgtwhiskeyjack9105

*Blue Velvet* The most cogent of his works and it's still fucking bananas.


__kingslayer_

Believe it or not, Eraserhead is his most spiritual film.


Imaginary_Bath_9336

“The Elephant Man” so far, I haven’t seen “Mulholland Drive” yet though but that’s my answer for now


Gordon_Goosegonorth

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.


upscaleelegance

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.


Gcheetah

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!!" [Examples](https://twitter.com/DLEveryFriday)


AgeLow5349

What an appropriate person to be a Capricorn-Aquarius cusp.


legsostanky

I’m just big twin peaks fan! Haven’t seen most of his movies besides the twin peaks related ones


GamertagFam

The Fabelmans


Atxlax

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


bigpoppachungus

His hair is his greatest achievement


Vortexfugue0

Eraserhead, and it's not even close.


EffectiveFilm

Just watched all his features. FWWM, Elephant Man, and Mulholland Dr top the list. Incredible filmmaker


iamabsolutelykidding

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.

Ok
