David Lynch has dabbled in the realms of many artistic mediums; as a matter of fact, he originally didn't intend to be a filmmaker and was instead mostly focused on being a painter, but one day I suppose he wanted to see his paintings move which led to his early "classic" horror animation "Six Figures Getting Sick Six Times" a semi disturbing avant- garde piece that reminds me quite a bit of his much later short "Bug Crawls". "Crawls" feels to me like a melding of Lynch's earliest and latest work, in particular his cryptic first shorts (ex: the aforementioned "Six Figures..." as well as parts of "The Alphabet" and "The Grandmother") and his equally, if not more cryptic recent works (ex: sections of "Inland Empire", practically anything else from Davidlynch.com, and "Twin Peaks" 2017, episode eight in particular, as well as anything featuring The Convenience Store). Lynch himself has said that this film is nothing more than a mood, and, admittedly, it's more of an art piece than a film. Like, I can imagine seeing this at the MoMA (in which case it'd be among it's better pieces I'm sure, and don't get me wrong I love going there but there's just some modern art that is really pathetic) more than I can a film festival. Either way, it's still creepy as Hell and a brilliantly haunting, atmospheric short that will appeal mostly to Lynch fans and anyone deeply interested in experimental art and cinema.
