Twin Peeks

Lynch cleverly shows his other side in Straight Story

It's that sort of moment that suggests that the positive awe -- that is, the wonder -- in Lynch balances his negative awe -- the dread. It has always been there, but in The Straight Story, it's dominant for the first time, perhaps in part because the director had to give proper respect to the real people whose story he's telling.

For whatever reason, The Straight Story is indeed heartwarming, though not simplemindedly so. It represents the other side of Lynch's particular, almost spiritual, worldview: In essence, The Straight Story could have been called Found Highway. Like Lyle and Alvin, it and Twin Peaks (and the others) are siblings beneath the skin, no matter how distant they may seem on the surface.
