How would you rank David Lynch's films?

Postby MysteryMan » Sun Sep 14, 2008 5:34 pm

I am not sure if there exists a discussion about this already but thought it would be a good idea to compare our tastes...

How would you rate David Lynch's films, omitting documentaries, short films and his work for TV?

This is my rank:

1. Twin Peaks - Fire Walk With Me
2. Mulholland Drive
3. Blue Velvet
4. Wild At Heart
5. Lost Highway
6. Straight Story
7. Inland Empire
8. The Elephant Man
9. Eraserhead
10. Dune
The next time you see me it won't be me...

1. Blue Velvet
2. Lost Highway
3. Twin Peaks - Fire Walk With Me
4. Inland Empire
5. Mulholland Drive
6. Wild At Heart
7. Eraserhead
8. The Elephant Man
9. The Straight Story
10. Dune

In general I've to say that I love all of his films nearly equally the only movie that I didn't like that much is Dune but that might have something to do with the fact that I'm not really a fan of Science fiction movies.

Straight Story
Eraserhead
Lost Highway
INLAND EMPIRE

sort of pointless for me--most of DL films rank about the same. only lost highway and INLAND EMPIRE seem to be of inferior quality. as for dune...well, i just happen to like it. i don't think eraserhead has aged as well as the others.

These three are at the bottom:

Wild At Heart
Lost Highway
Dune

The rest I couldn't possibly rank into order.

1. Mulholland Dr.
1. Lost Highway
(I can never decide between these two)
3. Eraserhead
4. The Elephant Man
5. Blue Velvet
6. Inland Empire
7. Wild at Heart

(The rest I haven't seen. If Ronnie Rocket was ever filmed, I would put it right under Eraserhead.)
