Dirty Dancing as directed by David Lynch

Just re-watched Dirty Dancing (1987) last night for my class, and I loved it more than I remembered. (Maybe I’d never seen it all the way through, having only caught sections of it on TV?)

Anyway, I also saw Flashdance for the first time this week, and Dirty Dancing is clearly the superior film. Then again, any film is improved immensely when set at a Jewish resort town in the ’60s (see also: A Walk on the Moon).

Linked to here is one of the best mash-ups I’ve ever seen — and I’m not hooked on mash-ups as a rule. Thanks to Tessa Smith for passing this along.
