Storyline

Little seen short film by David Lynch is set on a ranch in the turn-of-the-20th Century Wild West, USA is a collision of cultures where a grizzled, hard-of-hearing cowboy, Silm, and his two friends, Dusty and Pete, capture a mysterous, well-dressed Frenchman. Unable to understand each other, the fast-talking, slang-speaking cowboys and the non-English speaking Frenchman make the most of the situation while an Indian, named Broken Feather, joins the group and sets it into a perfect harmony with songs and dancing.

I'm a fan of Lynch, Nance, and Stockwell, but...
25 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lynch fascinates me and I love discovering new works by him. Twin Peaks, IMHO, is one of the greatest series of all time and it's a shame and tragedy that it only lasted two seasons. Likewise, Eraserhead is a beautiful, creative work of art. I have the utmost respect for Lynch and his work, but I have to admit, I just didn't get this film. Other reviews claim this movie is hilarious and that Lynch proved he can master humor. I'm sorry, but I chuckled once during this film and was bored for the rest. I actually wonder if the positive reviews with such high ratings are simply by die-hard fans who will claim everything Lynch has ever done is genius. Like I said, I'm a tremendous fan, but this film, IMO, was highly mediocre.

If you're a fan of Lynch and want to soak up everything he has ever done, by all means, watch this one. But if you're looking for hilarious comedy, most along, there is nothing to see here.
