    This is great. Lynch in his purest, and most horrifying form.

    I love Lynch's short films. "Rabbits" is still one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen in my life. It feels like an actual nightmare.

    I honestly found the ending of The Alphabet extremely frightening. Also, The Grandmother is stunningly shot and very haunting.

    I can imagine this being a huge seller for Criterion where collectors will have their 3 or 4th edition of this film now. You gotta' love Jack Fisk as the switchman operator who parlayed this role in a an Academy Award nominated production designer and art director for all of Terrence Malik's movies.

    I think all of Lynch's work is exceptional and beautiful, maybe I am strange. However his short films are especially touching and haunting. The Grandmother deserves praise especially and the short Premonitions Following an Evil Deed from Lumière & Co. was (along with Peter Greenaway's short for that collection) the only thing of artistic value from that collection of films.

      I think Drowning by Numbers, A Zed and Two Noughts, and The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover would all make great additions to the collection!

      I agree with you on the surreal beauty of his films. I especially agree with you on the Lumiere & Co. films (speaking of which, it's about time Criterion got some Greenaway).
