Product Description

Unique, controversial, and always original, director David Lynch exploded onto the cinematic landscape in 1977 with Eraserhead. Since then he has provided the world of film with a wealth of unforgettable movie. This box set houses three of his finest works; the affecting, inspirational drama, The Elephant Man, the enigmatic masterpiece Mulholland Drive and the disquieting, surrealist mystery Inland Empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insanely Good Value! 11 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
David Lynch has made of some of the most instantly recognisable and unforgettable films of all time, so it's no surprise that his name is on the lips of a thousand devout followers. This collection acts incredibly well as an introduction to his work, particularly to somebody who is unfamiliar with, but interested in Lynch's work, simply due to the incredible price. To buy these films individually would cost something in the reason of 16, so in terms of value, it could barely get any better.

The Elephant Man is one of David Lynch's simpler films, yet still contains strong imagery and the black-and-white style of Eraserhead. The performances of Anthony Hopkins as Treves and John Hurt as the titular character John Merrick are fantastic, and in fact it is difficult to fault any of the performances in this film. A truly emotional film, it says a lot about the judgmentality of humankind and taking things at face value. If you don't well up during this film, you officially have no soul.

Mulholland Drive is considered one of David Lynch's finest films, and deservedly so. Exposing the dark underside of the film industry, the film follows Betty Elmes, a young actress with dreams of fame and fortune in Hollywood. It is not long however, before she comes across Rita, a mysterious and beautiful figure with amnesia. This story is in itself intriguing enough, but it only becomes more so as Lynch pulls the carpet from beneath the feet of the audience. A film to really make you think.

Inland Empire is David Lynch's most recent film, and from a personal standpoint my least favourite, although that's not to say it's not a great film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please please please don't.... 10 April 2010
Format:DVD
... listen to the negative comments of the previous reviewers of this box set!
Although i don't own it, i do own each of the films individually and each of them are a cinematic peach in their own right. Beautifully shot and and crafted with absolute care and love. These films are art, not hollywood blockbusters (if you're one primarily for mindless action guts and gore steer away). David Lynch can only be described as a true visionary of motion art, Inland Empire being the latest and most wonderful (if albeit longest and most difficult to watch if you're easily distracted) piece to the puzzle. Wonderful, disturbing, heartbreaking and perplexing, this would be a great introduction to the man who had a film genre named after him (lynchian).

The Elephant Man *****
Mullholland Drive ****
Inland Empire *****

The weird and wonderful David Lynch shows his skewed take on the world in this excellent collection. But it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is Aunt Ruth? 13 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
A great, affordable collection of three of Lynch's most interesting films, albeit a somewhat incongruous choice to place The Elephant Man in a set with his two most recent cinematic releases - his style has clearly changed, and at times the early film looks almost like a sequel to Eraserhead. Mulholland Drive though, would be worth the price if it was the only film in the set, and remains his masterpiece, and is completely different to the 2006 film Inland Empire, which shows us a Laura Dern that conjures up acting a mile away from her stereotypical nice girl and bad girl acts in Blue Velvet and Wild At Heart respectively. Buy and be confused, but in the best possible way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lynch is a Steal! 28 Jun 2012
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I already owned The Elephant Man (which I later sold) and Mulholland Drive had always been a guilty favourite of mine but had only seen (twice) at ungodly hours, on TV, probably decimated by ill-timed adverts.

I would probably never have envisaged watching, let alone buying, Inland Empire. Its inclusion here, amongst two genuine classics is a bold but good one as it just sits there waiting for you to play it!

I both love and hate David Lynch, which I'm sure is bordering on normal! Inland Empire is difficult to watch at times, makes no sense at all but is interesting after the first hour (of three!) and has many great directorial techniques and flourishes. You do have to be a bit brave, but....(see my separate review of this on Amazon).

The Elephant Man is as far removed from Inland Empire - and indeed Mulholland Drive, imaginable. Nominated for 8 Oscars, in grainy black and white and a family film? That it's currently no 111 on IMDb's top 250 films of ALL time, says a lot, as does John Hurt's beautiful and quietly haunting performance and of Anthony Hopkins, his caring Doctor, who introduces John Merrick to culture and civilisation. Touching and perfect, it could have been a Frank Capra had it been made half a century earlier.

Mulholland Drive is an Institution amongst psychological journeys, so much so, I feel a huge amount of deja vu, as if I'd only just experienced (one experiences Lynch, not 'watch') its cunning a fraction of a second just previous, though I can never predict what will happen next - and I've seen it several times...

Anyway, those are the films.
