Re: Is David Lynch the most pretentious director?
I really love most of his movies, but I've never been able to sit through Inland Empire.
Peaks is awesome, but that's not his work alone, he had a lot of help making it what it was. Compare the movie to the TV show and you'll see what happens when it's just Lynch. I like Fire Walk with Me, but it has none of the warmth or humour that made the series great and the darkness is ramped up considerably.
