He needs to do a version of The Metamorphasis. I feel like that would take the cake.

The best scene in any of his films is the part with David Bowie in Fire Walk with Me.

"Well now we're not going to talk about JUdy, no we're not going to talk about Judy at all."

I've watched Inland Empire 4 1/2 times. I think it's okay.

What's your interpretation of it? I think Laura Dern is a ghost, and she was so addled over the violent events of her past that -- in a fugue state -- she picked up the phone to contact her ex-lover, who was a married man. Instead, she ended up calling a set of bunnies in a depression-era apartment, which uncoiled buried memories of previous reincarnations. Thanks to some weird and shocking revelations, she was able to play a record that threaded a needle into the grooves of her psychic field and, with the help of some old polish grandpas and a medium, reminded her of some more suppressed memories. A lot of the film is just her revisiting different points of her life and who she was and how she acted then. At the end, she realizes she'd been happier at home the whole time and should never have wandered away. The moment she promised herself never to fuck married men again, her imprisoned soul was freed, and endless repetitions of this same redemptive act unfolded across the astral plane, liberating thousands in the same transformative transcendental way that Buddha's fire sermon or Christ's death on the cross did for us all. If we would only read the writing on the wall and follow the path into the depths of the studio set, we too have salvation waiting for us.

Something like that.

Adam, you interpreted it pretty much they way I did. Violent death. And her Ghost keeps reliving the same thing over and over again throughout the ages.

I actually loved Inland. It's hard to make a Top 5 of his films.

Mulholland Drive
Eraserhead: saw a print of this in Jacksonville in 2010. Amazing.
Fire Walk with Me: saw a print of this at a midnight screening in Chicago this past January. Sheryl Lee is incredible.
Blue Velvet
Inland Empire: I dislike the digital aesthetic, but I love how intuitive/inscrutable it is.
Wild at Heart: the scene with Sherilyn Fenn is very moving, but overall I think it's campy in a bad way.
Lost Highway: rewatched this last night & strongly disliked it.

Still haven't seen The Straight Story or The Elephant Man, & probably won't ever bother to watch Dune.
