You'd have to be offended from the very start to feel that way about the movie (I guess it's easy enough since the movie opens with a brutal murder). Anyway, additionally, I know a lot of Lynch fans too that think it's minor Lynch, even a misstep for him.

Bottom line though: I thought it was great and I'm glad you think it's great too.
