The French really seem to love Lynch, including during his 90s "lost years" (true, FWWM was not terribly well-received but I think it's comeback happened faster there than elsewhere and some French leading lights - including Jacques Rivette - were intoxicated by it). Haneke isn't French, of course, but Cache is obviously made in a French context so there's that. Maybe I should say Europeans love Lynch, since Zizek is also an enthusiast (particularly of Lost Highway).
There's also an element of Lost Highway in Ringu, I think, and we all know how the Japanese feel about Lynch. Was there enough time between Lost Highway's Japanese release and Ringu's (which I think was a year later) for that link to be plausible?
