what, if anything, would you say "Eraserhead" is about?

Your order just about works for me except that I'm not super crazy about Blue Velvet. I mean, it's a good film, but it falls short as an expression of the Lynch that I love. Your top nine (inc. Inland) is otherwise pretty spot-on. The Grandmother is excellent.

This is how I would rank them:

Lost Highway
Straight Story
Elephant Man
Lynch's Twin Peaks episodes
Mulholland Dr.
Blue Velvet
On the Air
Fire Walk with Me
Wild at Heart
Inland Empire

Haven't seen Dune or any of the shorts. After a very good first 30 minutes, Inland Empire is a 2,5 hour snoozefest, and Eraserhead is a "film student film" with all the positive and negative things that implies. Everything else worth a watch, at the least.

Don't want to rank. I'll just continue telling everyone how gay I am for Inland Empire.

Don't want to rank. I'll just continue telling everyone ERASERHEAD

three years pass...

saw The Straight Story projected in 35mm today for the first time since '99 i believe. Built around a killer performance obviously, but one of the most moving American films of its era. That scene with Alvin and the other WW2 vet in the bar...

also forgot the US distributor

Straight Story is incredible. the ending is just perfect, just perfect. just the look on Harry Dean Stanton's face tells you everything.

i have a VHS copy that i showed to an old friend in from out of town last year at Christmas. we were both on the verge of tears by the ending but he still said thank you so much for showing this to me.

one of my favorite movie scores too (I tend not to notice unless they're obtrusive)

actually it's "What does a Miller Lite taste like?"

Rewatched Mulholland for first time in a decade or so and it's aged really well for me... wondering if I should rewatch Inland Empire again.

One bad call from barely losing to (Alex in SF), Saturday, 14 January 2017 14:45 (five months ago) Permalink

i screwed a couple guys for drinks; no big deal. this one guy was kinda cute. fucker had a dick like a rhinoceros. he'd fuck the shit out of you, i tell you what. he'd buy me a couple of drinks after. we'd talk. he'd tell me about the town he grew up in, all the little girls he fucked. there was a chemical factory in this town, and he'd tell me it was putting so much shit in the air you couldn't think straight. it got to a lot of the people. there was a lot of crazy shit going on there-- people having weird dreams. seeing things that wasn't there. this one time, this one little girl--she was staring off at something one time. starts screaming. the people hanging round come to her and ask what's wrong. and, uh, she says she sees the end of the world. all fire and smoke and blood running. you know. like they say. the wailing and the gnashing of teeth.
