David Lynch Series Episode 6
The story of the Real Life Lawnmower Man
After the violent, explicit Lost Highway, it seems whiplash-inducing that David Lynch’s next film would be a G-rated family film for Disney. But that’s what The Straight Story is. There are no dancing little people, no time loops, and no murder mysteries. The Straight Story is a story of Alvin Straight, a retired farmer who drives his John Deere lawnmower over 300 miles to see his ailing brother. Is this a Story worth watching?
