The Red House ★★★

Really, really Lynchian for an hour (Lon McCallister looks and talks like he's Marty McFly), and then starts explaining things and using plot devices, before going really off the deep end for a great finale. Also the final shot recalls the iconic shot of True Lies. One other perfect shot: two lovers flirt on a back of a bus, but Daves frames it as a three shot with a stern woman. Our eyes are drawn to her, and thus into the real narrative.
