Yes Revenge over a New Hope because I loved the baby jedi massacre. Jokes - but nah i loved the whole concept of the series coming full circle from the middle - never done before. And of-course seeing Vader get built scene was the shit and NoOOoOOoooOOOOOO scene was the moment you understand was he is so fuckin evil and pissed off in the last 3 episodes.

I havent watched all the Lone Wolf episodes or Baby Cart - but I do plan on it one of these days.

I think it's a very good film, but I could never call it a favourite because I find it more interesting than enjoyable.
by straightforward, i mean it's a very clear "hero's journey" with a beginning, middle and end. it's a narrative film. the lady in the radiator is pretty clearly presented as a fantasy of henry's.

i think it's one of the most enjoyable films ever made. it's one of the most affecting, disturbing and hilarious movies i've seen. i've watched it about five times.

I think what you see as straight forward is not what others would call straight forward. I get it, but it's not exactly a straight forward hero's journey. You make it sound like Iron Man!

I find it a little too distrubing to be enjoyable. In the same way that two of the best, most affecting films I've ever seen are Deer Hunter and Salvador, but I'd never call either a favourite, because they're fucking depressing.

I'm always eager to see a new Lynch film, but not many are actually favourites of mine. Although I do think possibly the best scene of all time is the opening of Blue Velvet.

by hero's journey i just mean it has a protaganist with a problem, and the film depicts his dealing with the problem in a narrative fashion. a lot of people make eraserhead sound like a collection of surrealist imagery like un chein andalou or something, while eraserhead is a clear narrative film.

i love disturbing films. i think one of the greatest things art can do is disturb. to me, an interesting and disturbing film is an entertaining film.

lynch is one of my favorite living directors, maybe my favorite living director next to werner herzog. i don't know if you saw it, but inland empire is his latest film. it's about as far from straightforward as it gets.

edit: by hero's journey i don't mean eraserhead even has a great "hero" or anyone goes on any kind of great journey. i'm just using the literary term.

Yeah, I've seen every single Lynch film, where possible in the cinema. Read his autobiography as well.

I love films like his, and I agree that art that disturbs can be a great film, but my favourite films are usually stuff that just makes me feel happy and I can just relax watching, with characters I like a usually some humour.
