David Lynch is one of my favourite film-makers. Hopefully he will find the money and motivation to transfer his thoughts to film a few more times. Until then, here is my ranked list of Lynch's feature films.
A unique experience, a total-body transfer to another plane of existence with gorgeous black-and-white photography and immersive sound.
2. Elephant Man
Beautiful black-and-white images paired with heart-breaking emotion.
3. Lost Highway
Perhaps Lynch's most under-rated film. A creepy, moody mind-screw.
4. Mulholland Drive
Mostly wonderful, slightly weakened structurally by the fact that it began life as a pilot for a TV series.
5. Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me
Less than the best moments of the series but still a powerful tale of evil lurking in the northwest.
6. Blue Velvet
I haven't watched this is a while and I'm almost afraid to. Dennis Hopper's performance is the stuff of dreams -- very bad dreams.
7. The Straight Story
A quiet but strong film with powerful Lynchian brushstrokes.
8. Inland Empire
A bit scattered and dense but it still has a lot to offer for those willing to make the effort.
An interesting failure with some strong production design.
10. Wild At Heart
I like my Lynch slow and sumptuous; this is Lynch at his most frenetic.
