It's such a fine piece of work that I couldn't give it less than 4 stars, but it's not a film that is especially close to my heart. It doesn't wear its neuroticism on its sleeve like 'Eraserhead'; hasn't got the sexiness nor romance of 'Wild At Heart'; the humour of 'Twin Peaks'; nor the searing humanity of 'The Elephant Man'. It's a stunningly shot world to get lost in, I just don't much like the world! Stellar cast
The sort of film that can and deserves to be watched over and over again. The opening sequence is magic. Those two and a half minutes set up everything that follows in the most perfect way. If one of the Hardy Boys had to solve a surreal film noir murder-mystery it would look something like this. Plus, Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth.
Disturbing and surrealist dive into the darkness that lies beneath the slightly campy surface of the film's world.Like the disgusting bugs that crawl under the perfectly pruned grass,the white picket fences and seemingly conventional relationships hide an absurd world of sexual perverts and body mutilation.With that said-this lacks the cohesiveness and impact of Mulholland in story,image and psychological depth.
Linear as it is the story is still as dreamy as any other Lynch's production. The music is just great though I really hated Isabella's haircut/wig in the film (yeah it hides her beauty very well). The film is just beautiful on big screen. And the young cooper was just too handsome! <3
Decisamente il più facilmente digeribile tra i film lynchiani, ma non per questo meno ricco. La componente surrealista è di ridotta entità e sempre distribuita in modo molto piacevole, dando risalto maggiormente al soggetto, diversamente rispetto lo standard del regista americano. Unica delusione è il finale, dove mi sarei aspettato l'estrazione di un asso dalla manica del regista, invece no, regolare e da copione.
