Lynch asks the viewer to decide what the movie means, here is my two cents...
The only experience I have with movies is being a couch potato since I was 11. I rented this movie a little less than thirty years after it was released. By then, I'd already seen Mulholland Drive and Wild At Heart. When I first rented this movie, I watched the first five minutes of it, chalked it up to being a weird silent film, and ejected the DVD. A year later, I rented it again after reading a blurb somewhere that it had an actual plot. This time, it took.
After watching the movie, I was so intrigued by what the meaning was, I read the IMDb trivia section about this movie. After already seeing Mulholland Drive, I wasn't surprised to see that Lynch intended for individuals to make up their own minds what the movie was about.
I figure myself to be an analytical person, no psychological elements left open and stuff, but you can't do that with this film. The first phrase that came to mind after I watched this movie was "An alternate reality of mass insecurity and anxiety" by the main character. Nothing seemed to be stable in his life. A picture of his girlfriend is ripped in half. I saw a plant growing out of dirt without a pot to hold it on the nightstand by his bed. The youngling chicken that was served at his girlfriend's parent's house was screaming and bleeding.
I also saw the humor too. The funniest part was the Mother of the girlfriend tossing/preparing the salad with the old woman's arms. She couldn't toss it completely by herself so without anyone looking, she puts the bowl in "Grandma's" lap and uses her hands like a puppet so that the meal could be completed by the WHOLE family...of course, Grandma never got invited to dinner but she served her purpose.
We live now in a cinematic world dominated by endless remakes, comic book movie overkill, and a dwindling demographic of adult movie-goers. For those of us adults who want to enjoy an original movie experience these days; David Lynch is the answer.
