Audience Reviews for The Amputee
Freaky little bit of test footage made for the AFI to demonstrate the quality of different brands of videotape.
A David Lynch short film that is completely nonsensical and very Lynchian...but it is really just a transitional film for him...it furthers the development of his signature style, but it isn't as important as his first two films. It just feels like something Lynch did to pass the time, not anything he really thought hard about. Interesting for what it is, an early short example of Lynch's style, but non-Lynch fans should probably avoid.
If you are into wound dressings gone bad, check this out. Young woman has her newly sawed off legs cared for by no less than a young "female" nurse David Lynch. It just shows how sick Lynch really was and no doubt still is.
I suppose this is supposed to be sarcastic film making. If so, it shows how truely sick it is.

Another one of David Lynch's short films. This one didn't to much for me either
This Lynch short is a guilty pleasure for me. I've watched it twice now, once at a cinema and then again on the internet later on.
