* SelfParody: Many have suggested that this film has elements of SelfParody to it. Given that the film is completely [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible messed up]] it would be hard to separate parodying elements from others, but some moments do seem ''ridiculously'' Lynchian, such as the ''Locomotion'' scene. This of course doesn't diminish the film being terrifying [[NothingIsScarier beyond]] [[MindScrew all reason.]]

* GainaxEnding: Wiki/TheOtherWiki's description of the ending: "The concluding scene of the film takes place in Nikki's house, where she sits with many other people, among them Creator/LauraElenaHarring, Nastassja Kinski and Ben Harper. A one-legged woman who was mentioned in Sue's monologue looks around and says, 'Sweet!' Niko, the Japanese girl with a blonde wig and a monkey, is also present. The end credits roll over a group of women dancing and lip-synching to Nina Simone's 'Sinnerman' while a lumberjack saws a log to the beat." So... yeah.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Many interpretations of the film indicate that the creepy rabbit people and the strange women that appears at the beginning of the film are actually trying to help the Lost Girl...But being a film of David Lynch you never know.

** This trope is debatable though, considering that the rest of the movie is no less strange.

Added DiffLines:

* MocksteryTale: In the beginning, it has elements of the detective/mystery genre (including a number of murders and several noir-style scenes), but it quickly turns into pure MindScrew. A popular interpretation is that beneath it all there is actually a psychological drama story.

** DavidLynch wrote it as he went, without knowing where he was going with it to see what would happen. As in, he pretty much let his subconscious direct a movie. Naturally, the result is probably the closest a movie will ever come to emulating a dream.

In Poland, a prostitute and her customer (their faces blurred) talk in a hotel room. In the same room years later, a woman cries and watches a sitcom starring three rabbits. An actress, Nikki Grace, in Los Angeles gets a visit from her neighbor and the next day gets the part in a movie, ''On High In Blue Tomorrows'', which turns out to be a remake of a Polish film based on a Polish folk tale ''47'' where the leads were murdered. Nine prostitutes lounge around a house. There's a murder, a mystery, and a woman in trouble.
