    The Straight Story is a fantastic film. I'll even say it's my favorite Lynch movie of the ones I've seen. The other ones are harder to get. There's something special about the simplicity of this movie.

    This film felt like it was just an experiment. Not that there's anything wrong with that. The editing makes the already short runtime fly by like it was nothing.
