I finally found the cult classic that many people could not find at the video stores in my neighborhood. I will not say where I found it, because you would have to go all the way to the west coast to find it. Now of course the people who live on the west coast can find it, but most people in the Midwest don't have the time or money to go all the way to the west coast to rent or buy a stupid video tape!

Now for the story. The film is about a guy with a weird hairstyle (Jack Nance, a Lynch favorite) who is an average Joe with an average job. He lives in a very dark and dank apartment building with his girlfriend and their monster offspring. David Lynch took five years to finish this film and the result is a little muddled at first, but becomes a bizarre look at the underbelly of human life (not unlike "Blue Velvet" or "Twin Peaks".) One of the flaws though is that it might be slow for some who aren't tolerant of slow movies. For others, they just might want to sit back and let their minds drift.

My Rating = Three Stars
