Sorry to be so honest, but your postings are far too vague and there are too many mistakes and worst of all you mix your own thoughts with someone else's throughout:
"I was bored (not born) before I even began."
Why introduce Scorsese as someone whose films all deal with history and then switch on to After Hours which clearly isn't?
I doubt Nochimson and Chion have really anything revealing to say about Lynch.

No, sorry, I didn't want to "complain". You do raise a lot of interesting issues, and that's nice. It's just difficult to argue with the wealth of ideas (own or others') you bring up.
Btw, I don't intend to have the final word on Chion / Nochimson, to my taste, both are 100% Lynch-admirers.
A German film critic uses the term "der nicht zuende geborene Mann"
(the man born "unfinished") as a recurring theme in Lynch's films and it struck me watching the Grace Zabriskie scene.
I believe Cronenberg and Lynch are lightyears apart (not counting the forgettable A History of Violence) and I beieve the same goes for Scorsese - who in my opinion is a storyteller in the conventional sense. Yes, of course many times period pieces / films dealing with history.
Whereas in Lynch's films the past is often dubious - subject to amnesia / personal interpretation. ("I like to remember things my own way.")
