The man, the myth, the legend.

Love him?
Hate him?
Envy him?

Why?


I love him, and don't need to tell you why. If you love him, you already know.

I like him.
I envy his hair cut, too.

I actually just bought the first season of Twin Peaks. I posted a thread on imdb, but what do you cool people think of it? I've never seen one episode, but everyone keeps saying how awesome it is.

And yes, I do realize that the whole boxed set is coming out soon, but I'm impatient!

I love him, but I really want him to stop doing surrealist work and branch out more like he did with The Elephant Man and Wild At Heart. Yes, he perfects surrealism every time he does it, but that seems to be all he really cares for. I want him to become more diverse and show his talents elsewhere.

I've only seen Wild At Heart and Blue Velvet, so I haven't really got a taste of his surreal work. In any case, the two mentioned above are extremely entertaining and excellently directed.

You'll love The Elephant Man, man. Really. Guaranteed 10 from you.

Definitely see Mulholland Dr soon as well. Dunno how you'll like it though.

That's like saying Bunuel should have done something other than surrealism.

It's like saying I'm interested in seeing how he would tackle other genres. Actually, that's exactly what I'm saying. The same thing applies for Bunuel, so yeah I guess it's like saying that. Your post was still irrelevant, though.

My post wasn't irrelevant. That word doesn't even apply. He is famous for his surrealist work, so why should he do anything else?

To have range.

But a director of that caliber doesn't need range.

You made an analogy that had nothing to do with what I was saying and really had no meaning. That made it irrelevant. First, Lynch isn't famous. Second, he should do other genres to show his range and so that people can see what he can do with other types of films. We get it, he's good at surrealism. Now I'd like to see him tackle something else.

Move off it, chum.

Why should he show range? I don't exactly want a crime-thriller or a romantic comedy from someone who is an expert at surrealism and dramas. The entire idea of it all sounds completely ridiculous to me. By the way, my statement was entirely relevant. He was a surrealist just like Lynch is, and if you ever said Bunuel should have done something other than surrealism, I'm sure the film buffs would let you have it.

Alright then. Different viewpoints. By 'the film buffs' who do you mean? You and I aren't 'film buffs'? I'm not saying that Lynch should do something other than surrealism, and I wouldn't say that about Bunuel either. I have said from the start that I would like to see him do other genres. That doesn't mean he should. He's the only one who knows what he should do.

Yeah, Lynch is totally famous. Maybe not huge famous like Tom Cruise or Steven Spielberg, but he's got the fame.

I love him. He showed me a different sort of filmmaking. But I'm with Mitch, I wish he would branch out more. The Elephant Man and The Straight Story are FANTASTIC films; he could be a master of family films if he were so inclined. And even if he kept up the surrealism, it'd be nice if he applied it to other genres like comedy, or maybe another sci-fi film, maybe some horror (and not Eraserhead horror, like Halloween horror), or heck, a musical or romantic comedy. The guy's a groundbreaker, let him break ground in other places.
