    David Lynch is a brilliant filmmaker to say the least, and he is definitely one of my favorite directors. I love every single film he has made, minus THE STRAIGHT STORY which just didn't work for me for some reason. So my question is: What is your favorite Lynch film? My favorite Lynch film is also the best film of 2001, MULHOLLAND DRIVE! This film is just a brilliantly made masterpiece in my book! One of the best films I have ever had the pleasure of viewing! So, which film is your favorite?

    I'm still a fan of Blue Velvet, despite what some critics say.

    I LOVE David Lynch!!
    I haven't yet seen Mulholland Drive, but I've seen everything else Lynch has done many, many times.
    His best is still Blue Velvet and Eraserhead (and his worst is Wild at Heart, a bit of a mess IMO)

    It may be to soon to say but I think Mulholland Drive is his best. I'm a big fan of just about all of his work though.

    Mulholland Drive.

    I am a Lynch fan, but I have not seen The Straight Story.

    I liked Dune to a certian degree but otherwise I don't care for Lynch's films. They have great moments but I tend to find the films as a whole are not nearly as good as the sum of their parts.

    Blue Velvet, followed by a three-way tie for Wild at Heart, The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.

    It'd have to be a two-way tie with Lost Highway and Eraserhead. But that could change when I see Mulholland Drive.
    (PS: My original choice was actually going to be Wild at Heart, but in hindsight it's WAAAAAYYYYYY too scattershot.)

    Definately Blue Velvet with The Straight Story a close second. Like many above, being an Englander (I saw Great Escape yesterday), I have yet to see Mulholland Drive, but the soundtrack is great! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I haven't seen them all, but of the one's I've seen so far, I'd have to say The Elephant Man, although I also remember liking Blue Velvet (it's been a while).

    I'm not a big Lynch fan. Having said that, I still think The Elephant Man is one fantastic movie.
