  1. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Amputee

    As I understand it, this Lynch short was a way to test film stock while Eraserhead was on hold. It's an interesting little exercise: a woman narrating a letter about obtuse interpersonal relationships while a nurse tends to her leg stumps—in short, a mixture of deadpan human drama and grisly human frailty, which is a fine and dandy art school metaphor for life. Plus, you get to see the Log Lady as a young woman.

    A brilliant little short by the legendary David Lynch

  3. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film The Amputee

    The effect it achieves isn't really worth the effort of sitting through it.

  8. Nina's rating of the film The Amputee

    May 2014/September 2014. I like it how the nurse is loosing control of her patient's injuries, one by one. The letter didn't matter to me as much as it did when I watched this short a few months ago, the disruption of the nurse's routine and her reaction to that however is demonstrated greatly. I LOVE you, David!

  13. Chase's rating of the film The Amputee

    The first viewing, I was mesmerized by the doctor figures brutish work. Upon the second I closed my eyes to listen to the inner-monologue of the amputee. In the end, I prefer the doctor to the whiny woman.
