When Neofetou finally gets around to analyses of the films, things improve a bit, but his writing continues to be constipated with jargon invented by his critical heroes. This constitutes a veritable Babel of incompatible concepts.
To put it as kindly as I can, the book sheds very little light on the films of David Lynch. Foremost, it is a treatise on how many books the author has read. I have done some piece-work editing doctoral theses, and this contains all the faults of a first draft--before an editor gently reminds the candidate that everyone would rather read coherent English than see how many authors the writer can regurgitate.
Bottom line is, for roughly 40 years, Lynch has been evolving his own brand of Exressionism in film. As Neofetou correctly points out, Lynch's work has always been underpinned with vestiges of traditional narrative forms. He is a fascinating artist, one whose films are meant to be enjoyed. Don't let this book kill that for you.
