The Mystery Disc includes...

A brief, awkward, and occassionally funny intro by Lynch himself.

Over an hour and fifteen minutes of interesting unseen footage from WILD AT HEART.

2 episodes of Lynch's absurd and funny online serial, "Out Yonder." For those who are not yet familiar, an episode of "Yonder" is included on DYNAMIC 01: THE BEST OF DAVID LYNCH. Check it out. It's worth mentioning that I found the two LIME GREEN episodes to be much funnier and more inspired than the DYNAMIC 01 episode, which was probably the first in the series.

4 perplexing, eerie, and mystery-haunted episodes of INLAND EMPIRE-related "RABBITS". All of these little gems were originally available on DL's official site, although they can no longer be seen there. The "RABBITS" series is simply the most intruiging and successful short work of Lynch's career, imho.

A 20 minute montage of early experimental work, from when DL was working on "The Alphabet" and "The Grandmother", both of which are included here in THE SHORT FILMS OF DAVID LYNCH disc. Deleted footage from both of these films are part of the montage.

A brief, dream-like, and oddly disturbing early film called "Absurd Encounter with Fear". This one's a personal favorite. I called it disturbing, but it's also pretty funny.

Another funny and bizarre short work called "Imaginary Anacin Commercial." Think of it as an absurdist satire of a television commercial.

A trio of fun and highly imaginative short films that Lynch exclusively screened at the Cannes, Hollyshorts, and Twin Peaks festivals. Two of them are actually more fun to watch backwards on slow-reverse. You'll see what I mean...

If you're a cinephile who is either just getting into Lynch or would like to, then this set would be a great purchase. It's got four of his older masterpieces: Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, and Wild at Heart. If you don't have these already, then this is a great buy with enough great extras to justify the price tag. And trust me - this is five-star material. David Lynch is one of the greatest artists in American cinema, and any film aficionado should familiarize themselves with his work.

Unless you're rolling in money, though, this set just isn't worth the cash for people like me who have already seen these four movies. I'm lucky enough to have a very well-stocked local library which already has the Lime Green Set, so I was able to check it out without plunking down the money. I already own copies of the four major films in this set as well as the "Short Films" DVD.

This set really does have some very nice extras that were never previously released. The new deluxe editions of "The Elephant Man" and "Wild at Heart" are fantastic, as is the brand-new 5.1 sound mix on this edition of "Blue Velvet." One reviewer already went through the contents of the mystery disc in thorough detail, so I won't bother to repeat it. "Industrial Symphony No. 1" was very interesting to see. I had never previously seen "Dumbland," and while it's hardly Lynch's best work, it certainly does reflect his absurd sense of humor and is worth checking out.

Bells and whistles aside, it's just not worth the price tag if you've already got the main four films. If you don't have it already, I would recommend picking up the "Short Films of David Lynch" DVD, as there is some very interesting material on that.

I suppose reviews should review the item as is, rather than dwelling on how it could have been. As others have mentioned, this is a strange box set. It can't really be seen as David Lynch 1970-1990 because it's missing 1984's Dune and it contains some gear shot very recently. But it does contain his signature films from that period. And that's the important thing. The four feature films contained in The Lime Green Set are absolute classics, the best of Lynch's career my opinion. Lost Highway and Mulholland Dr are terrific also, but not quite as beautiful and riveting as the awesome foursome Eraserhead, Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart. So while this box set is a bit of an uncategorable ragbag, it's the greatest Lynchian uncategorable ragbag imaginable. I already owned Eraserhead, Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart, but went ahead and bought the box anyway. I'm not unhappy with this expensive choice.

It was fun to see the Industrial Symphony No. 1 for the first time, presented here in the highest quality possible (it looks like it was shot on video, but has been nicely cleaned up). I had never seen The Short Films of David Lynch before; it's powerfully fascinating to see the master incrementally honing his craft. The Eraserhead soundtrack is the most unusual soundtrack CD in existence - essentially three epic mood tracks. The Elephant Man extras are interesting. Dumbland is plain dumb, which was the point I guess, but it's so lame, so so lame, but it's the only lame entry in the collection. The Mystery Disc is mixed. I was thrilled with the Wild at Heart deleted scenes, all 75 mins of them. The rest is mainly Lynch shorts from throughout his career - some are interesting, others feel very frivolous, like Lynch is parodying himself.

Sounds Great, Already Own Most...
It'd be nice if they/he released The Elephant Man and Industrial Symphony No. 1 seperately. I'm sure it'll happen somewhere down the line. But I want them ASAP, dammit!

The price of this set is a bit steep for me considering I'd only be buying it for two discs. I'll just wait out for individual...
