David Lynch!

I try very hard to rarely stray from the topic of film here at Bitchin’ Film Reviews.  But sometimes I can’t help myself, like now.  Have you seen the music video David Lynch made for Moby?  It’s bitchin’.  Now if only he’d just stop producing stuff and do another feature length film… Shot In The Back Of The Head from Moby on Vimeo.  Read More

Mulholland Dr.

From the second Mulholland Dr. starts, you’ll be enraptured with it.  It’s clearly a masterpiece from the beginning, and forces you to explore yourself in order to find it’s meaning.  Despite some people calling Eraserhead David Lynch’s masterpiece, this is it. After a brutal car accident in Los Angeles, California, Rita (Laura Harring) is the sole survivor but suffers mass amnesia. Wandering into a strangers apartment downtown,... Read More

Inland Empire

Like all of David Lynch’s movies, Inland Empire boasts that patented nightmarish/dreamlike quality that we’ve come to expect from him.  This is Lynch’s last feature film to date, and currently has nothing in production. When Lynch announced that he was making a new film, starring Laura Dern, shot only on a digital camera, all he said was that it’s ‘about a woman in trouble.’  I think it’s fairly safe to... Read More

Lost Highway

If art imitates life, I want to spend one day in the messed up, deviant world that David Lynch lives in. The best part about his films is the fact you have no idea what you’re getting yourself into. All bets are off.  Lost Highway will plunge you into a dark, tense world of fear and mystery. Fred Madison (Bill Pullman) is a successful jazz musician (playing songs oddly similar to Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’ album).  He’s... Read More

Wild at Heart

Continuing my self-education of the films of David Lynch, 1990’s Wild at Heart shot right to the front of my queue after watching Blue Velvet.  The story is no less shocking, no less provocative, and certainly not any more tame than one would expect from Lynch. Lula (Laura Dern) and Sailor (Nic Cage) are two reckless, young lovers, bent on spending their days doing the dirty and writhing around the dance floor at heavy metal rock concerts. ... Read More

Blue Velvet

Finding Inland Empire far too inaccessible for a David Lynch beginner, someone recommended I watch Blue Velvet.  Released in 1986, this film is a masterpiece.  A terrifying masterpiece. The story follows Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan), a college student who’s returned from his studies to help out at his father’s hardware store after some sort of incident left the father in the hospital.  While walking to the hospital, he comes across... Read More
