I got to watch Dumbland the other night, and I was really pleased to see something completely new from David Lynch. I've heard his movies described as "art films with a... plot?" and I have to admit that I'm not a hardcore Lynch fan myself. But, with this work it seems like he finally gets to portray something completely on his own terms and without pressure to stay in his own style. Dumbland made me laugh alot, I'm not going to lie. It was very very funny to me. It is completely absurd and obtusely blatant in Lynch's opinions, and is in contrast to the subtleties of his feature films, and this may be why I liked it in comparision. That, and the brevity of each episode. But really, this family and the father in particular being portrayed, is every where I look, and now when I see children bugging the hell out of their parents at the mall, I just pretend they're saying "My teeth are bleeding!" and feel closer to Lynch in our communal detachment from society.
