    ★★★★★

    "If you figure a way to live without serving a master, any master, then let the rest of us know, will you? For you'd be the first person in the history of the world"

    Pretty sure PTA could direct a criterion cereal commercial.

    This Freddie Quell character wouldn't last a day in my frat house.

    First David Lynch feature I've seen (having only been exposed to Twin Peaks and some short films) and it's equal parts expected and unnervingly ridiculous.

    I think the overall mythos of the 'Lynchian' aesthetic, in all it's strange and matter-of-factly surrealism, supersedes some of the more impressive technical efforts. Like, it hadn't occurred to me that Lynch also being a music producer would translate…
