Patrick’s review published on Letterboxd:
Happy Birthday to me!!!!
Lynch has a kink for telling unique character studies through a different lens. His character studies all contain disturbing imagery, strange characters, a mysterious and somewhat comedic tone, and bizarre scenarios. This is one of the best character studies of all time, and it tackles so much, from a persons mental state and issues, to a critique of the Hollywood industry, to deconstructing film itself. It is such a joy to watch this again on my birthday, and it is still my favourite film ever made.
