I hated it for many years - everytime i watched it from VHS in cropped to 4:3 on small screen i hated it more.
Until I had a chance to see it on a BIG cinema screen. And I'd love it. It's one of my Lynch's top 3 films!

So, IMO if you didn't see it in a cinema on big screen, you didn't see it at all! ;-)

Holy Cow! Talk about the hardest list I've ever had to rank!

-Lost Highway
-Dune
-Straight Story
-Mulholland Drive
-Twin Peaks: FWWM
-Wild at Heart
-Elephant Man
-Eraserhead
-Blue Velvet
-Inland Empire

Of course, there are slight changes in rank depending on my current state of mind. :P

1. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
2. Inland Empire
3. Blue Velvet
The rest follow in a somewhat precarious order. I never liked Mulholland Drive much and Eraserhead needs a re-watch.

Still haven't seen The Straight Story, Dune and Elephant Man.

I honestly wouldn't be able to make that list. There's so many ways in which one can assign a certain amount of value to a film and it's too hard to pick one of them. So far, I'm a bit surprised by how low the Straight Story has been ranked, as it always struck me very deeply.

Inland Empire, Fire Walk With Me and The Straight Story are my favorite films by Lynch.
I believe all these phenomena that our putted-up egos and busy ant minds persist in trying to label, categorize, penetrate, and comphrehend, all spring from this same uncanny source. This is the mother of all "others".

1) Mulholland Drive
2) Blue Velvet
3) Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
4) Inland Empire
5) Lost Highway
6) The Straight Story
7) Eraserhead

7. Wild At Heart
8. The Straight Story

10. Dune

Extraordinary filmmaker. Wild At Heart would be comfortably higher than 7 in any other directors greatest films list. I consider seven of his films to be masterpieces. Mulholland Drive was Lynch's greatest film because it was the result of all that came before it. His artistic intent was never clearer or more accurately transferred to the screen as it was for Mulholland Drive, and the film incorporated elements of Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks and Eraserhead.
