    The Big Lebowski 1998

    ★★★★★ Added 8

    Lynch at his absolute best: dark, disturbing, and brain-meltingly deep, there are unanswered questions aplenty, but hints are dropped more generously than the likes of Mulholland Drive or Inland Empire. An incredible score from (regular Lynch wingman) Angelo Badalamenti and Barry Adamson — with notable pieces contributed by Trent Reznor, along with songs from Marilyn Manson, Lou Reed, Rammstein, and The Smashing Pumpkins — drench this masterpiece thick with an ominous, foreboding atmosphere. Superb.
