Nope, that's a female trait

Males try to rationalise their poor taste, but women just acknowledge it's poor and live with it.

That, or maybe I just enjoy the generalisation

I love Eraserhead and Blue Velvet in particular, like bits of Wild at Heart, Season 1 of Twin Peaks, and enjoyed Mulholland Drive …
Seems to fit the profile of having poor taste

To put it another way: Lynch just isn't for me.

I think of his movies as art without a point - or points so simple they need to be delivered in the most obscure fashion imaginable, so the audience thinks there's more to it than there really is.

That's not to say there aren't great aesthetics, like beautiful women and interesting symbolism in his films - I just don't think they amount to great cinema.
