Lynch’s best indeed! It’s his most distilled film
- cutting straight to the heart of his beautiful filmmaking technique. This is not a feel good movie, but the ultimate filmic experience. I never knew a film could make me FEEL so strongly - be it anxiety, or anything else.
It plays out alien and sinister throughout, removed from reality by its odd pacing and social anxieties made manifest. It contains some simply GORGEOUS chiaroscuro hard lighting! I won’t go into what the film means to me, but its certainly spiritual and transcends just “being entertainment”. 10/10.
This film singlehandedly made me a cinephile. After seeing it, I couldn’t and cannot get enough of film
- a beautiful medium (or merging of media, another discussion) of expression.
