There are aspects to Lynch's work that I can understand in the dreamscape. But a lot of it seems contrived and too graphically horrific. The subtle feeling of angst is more appropriate, like the ceiling fan in Twin Peaks. It's not the separate components of dreams that hold a horror, it's their composition. Repetition and time-jumps are key, as well as the playing-out and sudden corruption of a conscious wish. I'll give him one thing - he's made me seriously analyse his work.
Lost Highway, 1997 - I LIVE for this film!!! Have rewatched it many times & watching it again tonight!!! And what a sumptuous visual journey!!! It's always a brilliant MIND FUCK!!! I just wanna be like both of the delicious vamp/s played by Patricia Arquette!!! Has one of best quotes ever: "I like to remember things my own way...how I remember them. Not necessarily the way they happened." Also has best movie soundtrack made with awesome Trent Reznor. Beautifully hauntingly trippy!!!
