Picks and Pans Review: New on Video

You have to wonder where David Lynch finds the time. The latest project for the Twin Peaks visionary is this bizarre 50-minute video. Let's set the scene: Strobe lights flash on a stage where Julee Cruise, the peroxide blond with the ethereal voice, sings to the ominous strains of Angelo Badalamenti's beatnik jazz. There are appearances by a topless woman writhing atop a vintage car, a man in suspenders tumbling in space, a midget who was previously seen in Agent Cooper's dream plus assorted men in ski masks and hard hats.

Muddled in a way that recalls Neil Young's 1979 concert film. Rust Never Sleeps, this video still bears the Lynch touch: surreal imagery that stays with you, though sometimes you'd rather it didn't. (Warner/Reprise, $19.98)
