The 50 best David Lynch characters
Time Out counts down the greatest characters in David Lynch films
A new BFI season starts this February celebrating the life and work of America’s most successfully idiosyncratic filmmaker, David Lynch. In a career spanning four decades, Lynch’s twisted and brilliant mind has spawned some of the most memorable, terrifying, lovable and head-spinningly strange characters ever to grace the cinema screen. Here are 50 of our favourites.
Obviously, we didn’t have room to fit in every one of Lynch’s great characters. So if you’ve got something to add (‘Where the hell was Shadout Mapes?’), please let us know in the comments box below.
