David Lynch's ten weirdest scenes, by film
"Don't You Fucking Look at Me"
Blue Velvet is Lynch's magnum opus, but it's also his first foray into what would come to define his pet fascination as a director: the seedy underbelly of suburban kitsch. More important, though, it has Dennis Hopper, the best actor ever at playing crazy-ass motherfuckers, playing the best crazy-ass motherfucker of his career. Honorable mention: "Heineken! Fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"
Wild at Heart
"Those Are Dummies, Dummy"
Basically Lynch's full-length homage to the legend of early rock and roll, Wild at Heart also features Nicolas Cage in possibly the baddest-ass snakeskin jacket ever to appear on the silver screen. Elsewhere, it's a testament to Lynch's talent for milking even creepier performances than usual out of already-creepy actors. Witness Willem Dafoe above.
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me
Formica Table/David Bowie
An unnecessary prequel to a formerly popular television series that, at that point, few people cared about anymore, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me was unarguably a colossal failure -- though, like all David Lynch films, it went on to develop a cult following. David Bowie's pitiable attempt at a down-home country accent probably didn't hurt.
