5.0 out of 5 stars Where is Aunt Ruth?, 13 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: David Lynch Collection [DVD] (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 Remastered, expanded, brilliant., 13 Oct. 2011
The phrase "live Talking Heads album" usually brings to mind "Stop Making Sense". As good as that album was, it worked far better as a film, as the cinematography was as essential a part of the experience as the music. This, though, is from a few years earlier and, despite its relative obscurity, is a far better record. A generous thirty-three tracks takes us through the first four Talking Heads albums, from "77" to their 1980 colossus "Remain In Light", and never has the music sounded so good, or David Byrne's vocals at their most simultaneously tortured and fun. The album is worth buying for the live versions of "Memories (Can't Wait)" and, especially, "Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)" by themselves. This is truly a superb collection and a stellar example of how to put together a live record. A must-buy.
