Movies that make you go WTF are special indeed. Just ask (or read) this Whatculture contributor who's viewing habits make Hollywood focus groups cringe in fear that she has such influence on main stream culture. While we all bitch about the current state of cinema with its popcorn predictability, dumbed down mass releases and beating on the usual dead horses, let's instead take a look at a visionary director that has such influence on cinema that his contribution cannot be overlooked at a time when our attention span is so short that we want to just jump into the main part of this article, so much so that it's difficult to follow to the end of this sent David Lynch is an oddity within himself. A non-mainstream visionary who hit the mainstream right in its American nutsack. His film genre CV reads like a student itinerary with 'Undeclared' written all over his class choices.
