"David Lynch's films might be filled with all sorts of dreamlike imagery and strange characters, but it's the sound that can really make you feel uncomfortable." That is a great introductory line!! Interesting video!
I am currently obsessed with David Lynch. Ever since they announced the Twin Peaks reboot I've been thinking about it non-stop. Although my brother would say ever since I watched Twin Peaks I've been thinking and talking about it non-stop. Right now I'm going through all of David Lynch's films by renting them from Netflix, recording them on TV, and then I have some. I'm not going in any order. The one I have at the moment is Dune (1984).
1. Plein Soleil (Purple Noon) (1960)- unexpected- I can't decide between Alain Delon and Rene Clement
2. Psycho (1960)- significant progressive masterpiece- Alfred Hitchcock
3. Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)- colorful, NYC, friendship- Audrey Hepburn
4. Pierrot Le Fou (1965)- new wave crime- Jean-Luc Godard
5. Rebel Without A Cause (1955)- relate-able character stories- James Dean
My favorite movies made by women are The Virgin Suicides and Lost In Translation (Sofia Coppola), Daisies, Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World (Lorene Scafaria), Ruby Sparks and Little Miss Sunshine (Valerie Faris), The Riot Club (Lone Scherfig) (I have yet to see An Education), Coco Before Chanel (Anne Fontaine), Unbroken (Angelina Jolie).
There are so many on this list that I want to see... I really want to see Diary of a Teenage Girl and I Believe in Unicorns!! I also want to see Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles. It's on the Criterion Collection and on their hulu page, so I should really watch it soon!
Just want to mention that the French New Wave is my favorite film era, too!
