Tonight my satellite system had a festival of David Lynch movies. I watched Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart. ANyone here find David Lynch a favorite. Do you always understand what they are about.
Soon coming to our area is his new Movie "Inland Empire." Do you recommend it. Laura Dern is a favorite of mine.

Don't know why I continue to watch a movie for it's duration, when I keep asking myself, what the hell is going on. Sort of bizarre and surreal, maybe. Yet, strangely interesting.

Blue Velvet was loosely inspired by Kenneth Anger's Scorpio Rising.
Some of the best modern directors of today owe so much to that experimental film. I think only Martin Scorsese actually acknowledges the significance of Scorpio Rising due to its juxoposition of pop songs and movie themes.

Watch Eraserhead if you haven't yet. His first feature length movie. The "baby" in that movie looked so real.

Lynch's films are fantastic.
He sends viewers through a maze, with character role reversals and nonlinear plot lines, especially in "Lost Highway" and "Mulholland Drive".
Know what they're about? Ha! Not always. That's the beauty.
If you find it "strangely interesting" then watch it.

David Lynch's films are weird and at times highly disturbing but never a waste of time. I like his work.

I see one scene where Oliver Stone mimicked Lynch. Admidst the violence, Julette Lewis ( in" Natural Born Killers," ) and Laura Dern (in WIld at Heart,") both driving and listening to the radio and on comes on news loaded with violence. Both freak out. Loved the parody.
