lynch or cronenberg?
David Lynch for me though I’ve seen all his films and prob less than half of Cronenberg’s.
Lynch has the stronger ouevre, although he’s made less films. Never put out anything bad – even his weakest stuff is pretty cool, always watchable and interesting whereas Cronenberg has dished up the occasional biscuit-arsed film. Not even that really, just he’s made a few routine efforts wheras a Lynch film always seems like an event. Get the impression that Lynch is the creative force behind the entirety of his films – is he not frequently the writer, does the screenplay, big influence on the music etc whereas Cronenberg often ‘just’ directs?
David Lynch also made Inland Empire and got it released – has Cronenberg ever baldly shown his arse in the same way? That film is amazing – actually never seen anything like it.Posted 4 years agocynic-alMember
Tough…Lynch for pure genius but he is hit and miss IMO (I thought MD was guff!).
Cronenberg makes more accessible films but still with a fantastic dark edge.
I suppose they are quite different in that way, whether intentional or not.
EDIT had a look at their cvs…I’ve only seen the more successful of Cronenbergs films.Posted 4 years agokimbersSubscriber
Love them both tbh lynch possibly edges it but then cronenbergs stuff with clive barker ….
and crash is brilliant
its just a shame that there are so few directors like them/ studios willing to back their kind of work
still just imagine what couldve been….

Lynch by far.
Lynch thinks Dune is such a failure
He’s right – it’s utter shit. The most wooden acting by everyone involved and what appears to be a reliance on special effects of big wiggly worms and a “floating fat man” to carry a weak effort. Of course the film of a book is rarely as good as the book, but it’s like nobody could be bothered to try.Posted 4 years ago
