Description by OLDIES.com:
From American filmmaker David Lynch, this collection of shorts spanning nearly 30 years traces his roots in the bizarre and the surrealistic. Included on this must-have compilation for any true Lynch fan are Six Figures Getting Sick (1966), The Alphabet (1968), The Grandmother (1970), The Amputee (1974), The Cowboy and the Frenchman, as well as his contribution to the Lumiere Company project, Premonitions Following An Evil Deed (1995).
An oddball collection of short films from the master of oddity, David Lynch, this release provides a compelling look at some of Lynch's rarely seen shorter works, including "The Grandmother," a story about a boy who grows a grandmother as an alternative to his abusive parents; "The Amputee," a film about an amputee attempting to write a letter; and "The Alphabet," an eerie animation from Lynch's student days. Covering films from the 1960s to the 1990s, this release goes inside the peculiar sensibility and aesthetics of one of our most idiosyncratic filmmakers.
