Film Club Rule #202: If you’re watching a film by David Lynch at home, call a friend, leave the lights on, cause it’s gonna get weird and scary.
Confounding, hilarious, terrifying, surreal, the work of David Lynch is all of this and more. Starting with his cinematic debut Eraserhead, Lynch displayed a penchant for the confusing and offbeat wrapped in the most basic of human tropes.

Heather looks at Lynch’s most approachable work the g-rated, Disney produced The Straight Story. We also discuss Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, The Elephant Man and of course the original Twin Peaks.
