Nabby, I've only seen Elephant Man and The Straight Story.  Elephant Man is one 
of the most touching movies I've ever seen.  The Straight Story is a wonderful 
combination of being sweet and quirky and down to earth.  Nonetheless I'm not 
really drawn to his other works though I admire his creative vision and what 
shall we call it, boldness.

One must be a really sick and twisted soul to read this into the films of David 
Lynch. As others have suggested, you seriously need professional help. 

Long before I knew he did TM it was obvious to me that his films are about the 
human struggle for dignity in a  mundane, violent and often depressing world. 
Often set in extreme situations his films capture in a very moving way the 
stuggle of individuals towards light, love and goodness.

Along with a few other masters of cinema Lynch visualize this process in a 
beautiful and touching way.
