But gave up once that chick started singing, "In heaven everything is fine." I can't say whether it was too disturbing or just not my kind of movie. I'm starting to lean toward the former, though, as much as I don't want to admit it. (Yeah, I know horror films aim to make viewers uncomfortable, but this was out of my league). I'm not saying it's a bad movie by any means - it's a very good one - but I think I'll stick to stuff like Evil Dead or The Omen from now on.
Oh well, at least I can say I tried something different. :\

The straight story is a great movie. It's in his style, but completely harmless and uncontroversial. It's a nice and steady movie. What I really like about Lynch's movies (in general) is that they are perfect examples of Luke's cave. (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back) The movie experience and what you get out of it is entirely based on what you bring to the movie. I've seen Mulholland Drive 4 or 5 times, and each time my vision of what the hell goes on in the movie has been changed and refined to reflect what goes on in my life.
Yeah, it's hard to deny that Dune had an awesome image, style and flair to it even if the narrative was pretty poor. There are still many scenes I remember from that movie vididly, such as the scene where the Baron Harkonnen tears out that guy's heart plug and drinks his blood.
Interestingly enough, there were plans for a Dune movie before Lynch's adaptation that was going to have designs by HR Giger. That would have been an interesting movie to see. Hard to say if it would have been more or less trippy, though. :p
