Top 10 Best David Lynch Movies


The Top Ten

1 Mulholland Dr. (2001)

Great acting, very creative, all sorts of weird emotions and feelings made into a film which is so hard to make happen. We are blessed to have David Lynch and able to experience his genius in our lifetime.

The movie was maybe a little bit to surreal but it was a great thriller - MatrixGuy

2 Eraserhead (1977)

This movie has no violence, no profanity, no sex or nudity, some smoking but no drugs or alcohol, yet this movie is amazing at is loaded with horror. Now it takes a good director to pull that off!

3 The Straight Story (1999)

A tender film. Also a great movie! Very beautiful.

4 Blue Velvet (1986)

A beautiful, strange, dark film - MatrixGuy

5 The Elephant Man (1980)

Very emotional.

Should be No. 1 - jack2244

6 Inland Empire (2006)

His least refined (well, after Dune maybe), but his most moody and atmospheric movie.

Because this is also a beautiful David Lynch film

7 Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992)
8 Wild at Heart (1990)
9 Lost Highway (1997)
10 Rabbits (2002)
