I really like David Lynch, but I thought this was really dull. It's the only film of his that I haven't loved. With his other movies, even if you don't get them, they look great, but this looks so ordinary, and the dialogue is comically cryptic. It seemed like a parody to me, and the one nude scene was really gratuitous. Laura Dern was fantastic, though, as were the other cast members. But, I don't know, call me a philistine, I just didn't like it. And I really wanted to. For me it was a case of The Emperor's New Clothes, what with the hype and all. I want to give it another chance, and I've seen it three times now, but it's really tested my patience. David, forgive me...
