(at around 10 mins) Lula talks about her Uncle Pooch dying in a car accident while vacationing in Myrtle Beach. As she speaks,a car is shown crashing down a mountainous ravine and bursting into flames. The goof: Myrtle Beach is a flat seaside town and there are no mountains or ravines like those shown for hundreds of miles around. See more »

This movie is along my TOP-10 favorites. It's a shocking experience and a proof of what David Lynch's movies mean to those of us who enjoy shocking movies. It's a love story told in a different way. Great acting, great music (from Classic to Speed Metal), erotism, suspense, this film has everything you could ever want in a good movie. Two thumbs up!
