YOUR FAVOURITE DAVID LYNCH DIRECTED MOVIES – TOP FIVE

YOUR FAVOURITE DAVID LYNCH DIRECTED MOVIES – TOP FIVE

1. Blue Velvet (1986)

“Packed with typically beautiful, lavish colour, and multi-referencing once again extending to old favourite The Wizard Of Oz, this is fairly unmissable” Empire Magazine

“Three decades after its initial release, David Lynch’s Blue Velvet has lost none of its power to derange, terrify, and exhilarate” Village Voice

2. Lost Highway (1997)

“It’s one of the downright spookiest films I’ve ever seen, and it gives me chills just to recall it” Combustible Celluloid

“It’s pensive male anxiety, and for some cultural reason it’s easier for audiences to accept female hysteria than the insecurities of men” Slant Magazine

3. Mulholland Drive (2001)

“One of the very few movies in which the pieces not only add up to much more than the whole, but also supersede it with a series of (for the most part) fascinating fragments” The Observer

“Mulholland Dr is reissued some 15 years after it was released. It was rapidly hailed as the first great US film of the century. None since has been any more powerful” Irish Times

4. Wild at Heart (1990)

“Lynch’s kinky fairy tale is a triumph of startling images and comic invention” Rolling Stone

“Though Miss Dern and Mr. Cage are constantly upstaged by the rest of the movie, they triumph” New York Times

5. Eraserhead (1977)

“It’s beautiful and strange, with its profoundly disturbing ambient sound design of industrial groaning, as if filmed inside some collapsing factory or gigantic dying organism” The Guardian

“David Lynch’s Eraserhead must stand as a pinnacle of screen surrealism to rival Bunuel’s Un Chien Andalou” The Observer
