i haven't seen inland empire but when i was studying media and culture, one of my teachers described it as "mulholland drive on steroids" lol.

i love david lynch but that might be a bit TOO much, even for me.

I like Inland Empire more than Lost Highway, but it's a little long and the digital composition is a bit ugly. Some people really love it though.

I love every Lynch film I’ve seen: Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Fire Walk with Me and Mulholland Drive.

Eager to see the rest, and overdue.
I need to update my signature.

I assume you watched Twin Peaks and The Return?

I really can't get into Lynch much, or surrealist movies in general. I think his are often too heavy that it creates a big disconnect for me. Nothing wrong with people liking that, it just doesn't appeal to me. I certainly love semi-surrealist movies that have somewhat of an absurd premise where the characters still act believably. Woman in the Dunes in particular is one of my all time favorites surrealist movies, which by the way, your list is severely lacking in Hiroshi Teshigahara and Masaki Kobayashi, who are pretty much on the same level of Akira Kurosawa in terms of classic Japanese cinema.

I'd say the two most conventional Lynch films - Elephant Man and The Straight Story - are also very good and may be his most emotionally resonant because they're so much easier to follow.

I haven't seen Inland Empire for somewhat the same reason; I f***ing love Lynch but I'm not sure I can make it through three hours of his madness. Also, that shot of Laura Dern's face might legit be too terrifying.

My list is definitely short on silent films and foreign films. I plan on spending some time catching up on those in the near future!

I would absolutely love that

I started from a list of 1000, so certain omissions were intentional
