Mother: Navin, it's your birthday, and it's time you knew. You're not our natural-born child.
Navin R. Johnson: I'm not? You mean I'm gonna STAY this color?

People either love him or have no idea what to make of him. It is wild to think that his directing skills have never been recognized with an Oscar. His films might be challenging but no one can deny that they are spectacularly filmed.

I'm a big Lynch fan, to the point that I like Dune, a film he disassociated himself with. I'd rather watch bad Lynch than most of what Hollywood churns out. I think he's just out of my top 10, maybe he's top 15, but I'm a fan. Also, the final episode ever of Twin Peaks was directed by Lynch after a long absence from the show, and that's one of the best hours of TV I've ever seen, in a genre that is usually more producer driven than director driven.

True, although I didn't like the style of Mulholland Drive very much.

Same with Wes Anderson and Tim Burton, well about not being recognized by the Academy. I don't think they've even been nominated.

Navin R. Johnson: Good Lord - I've heard about this - cat juggling! Stop! Stop! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Good. Father, could there be a God that would let this happen?

Don't think I saw Mulholland Dr. Being from L.A., I get that movie confused with Laurel Canyon (L.A. people will get that)

Dune had a lot of great things going. It really should have lasted 4-5 hours because the depth of the story. It is okay just the same. The final episode of Twin Peaks is amazing. Every frame in the Black Lodge is chilling. I'm going to watch that the next chance I get.

I can barely sit through a 3 hour movie, much less a 4 hour one

Dune was hella cool though.

If it was split into two 2 hour movies, that would've been better, at least for me. Maybe end the first one with Paul Atreides' father getting killed and whatnot, I don't know.

Most of the great directors of the past generation or two haven't been recognized. Maybe the Oscar people don't like outside the box directors. How can you not appreciate stuff like Life Aquatic and Rushmore?!

That would have been a great idea. A lot of films from books should be in mini-series form. The only problem is mini-series don't get big enough budgets.

Unless they're these Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter/Narnia-esque epics.

Did you like the Dune mini-series?

Exactly. This scene is reason enough for Tim Burton to be an Oscar-winner:

I've read every Dune book, including the prequels and the new books that pick up after Chapterhouse: Dune. I'm a fan, let's say that. The film, while a mess, is still mesmerizing to me. It helps that I know what the fuck is going on, though. Agreed, a 4-5 hour film, like Sci-Fi did, would have been best. Actually, there is a 3.5 or 4 hour version out there somewhere, I believe.

Also, yes! The Black Lodge scenes are chilling indeed. That last shot of Cooper's Doppleganger grabbing him from behind, oy vey! And, of course, Cooper's last lines in the episode are chilling as well.

I liked the Sci-Fi series, but, much prefer the film.

Patrick Stewart and Sting were in the movie, case closed.
