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

    Looks like exactly what it was: art school juvenilia by an artist overflowing with ideas and still accruing experience (and funding). But it was already remarkable how good Lynch was at creating a nightmare world with limited resources, and how fresh it felt to combine that nightmare world with traditional Americana. The story of a search for familial love—and the loss of it.

  2. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Grandmother

    The feeling of urine pooling between your legs, warming and shameful. Feels like Lynch straight-up ripped the film out from a little boy's psyche. I wish he'd done something else with these sickly, radiated colours. This is a gem though, so brutal and tender-hearted. The animations are about as direct a representation of psychosexual neuroses that I can imagine. And, expectedly, the sound design is remarkable.

    How does one review this film? I will just say this: If one doesn’t feed   ON THE NEEDS,   Then there is NOTHING   To pay forward.

  11. Log Lady's rating of the film The Grandmother

    The desire for human connection, when the reality of everyday life is reduced to a cacophony of physical and verbal abuse. The tragedy when your parents are absurd clowns, who rob their son his right to a decent life. The grandmother is a symbol for affection and warmth, and Lynch mixes that with ghostly faces and pitch black rooms. Ultimately, getting love and then losing that makes life a very surreal experience.
