For better or worse, his films push boundaries, challenge the viewer, and leave us feeling completely shell-shocked a lot of the time.
There is probably no one exactly like Frank (Dennis Hopper) in the world, or at least I hope not, but that's ok because he's supposed to be an exaggerated form of craziness and evil.I also don't think that Frank is just a person, I think he represents the evil of the world.
There are many weird and even absurd moments, but the film never seems shattered or 'random' because of its overarching mood.
