I'm surprised no one's posted a topic for this movie, specifically. This is my favorite Lynch movie. I was just too blown away by how sensitive Lynch's directing was, how he was able to get to the depths of this poor guy who couldn't be treated like everyone else. I would go as far as to call this a beautiful film, and I don't normally refer to them as such, it gets too carried away with some people. Also, the use of Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings years before it became "that song in Platoon" was unbelievable. I know some people don't like it as a Lynch movie, I guess because it's grounded in reality and not entirely fucked up, but hey, he made it, it's outstanding, it's a great Lynch film.
