A man who needs no introduction. The king of the surreal, the weird and the unusual. His films are starting to show some technical decay, but his mastery of atmosphere is so powerful that his oeuvre remains largely unaffected by it.

Beyond exceptional

Rabbits

Specifics: USA [2002] - 50 mins

5.0

It's a simple, one-trick project that offers very little in the form of tangible content. On the other hand it's superbly captivating and extremely mysterious, unlike any other film I know.

My only problem with Mullholland Dr. is that it just isn't as special anymore as it used to be.

It's hard to ignore the toll that time has taken on this film.

Inland Empire is still a pretty interesting film and if you've enjoyed Lynch's older films it won't be too much of a disappointment. But expect crappy video quality and less than preferable visuals.

Like most of Lynch's films, Lost Highway aged considerably. But while the visuals, the soundtrack and the score failed to impress this time around, the atmosphere has remained pretty much intact.

The Grandmother

by David Lynch
Specifics: USA [1970] - 34 mins
Genre: Horror, Experimental
More info on :IMDb
3.0

A dark and experimental film that shows the budding talent of David Lynch. While definitely a little rough around the edges, the gritty cinematography, challenging sound design and disturbing animations are sure to appeal to fans of Lynch's later work. The Grandmother didn't get better over time, but it's still an interesting watch.
