Lynch on Lynch

Lynch on Lynch

From what I’ve read about David Lynch in the past I gather that he doesn’t like to talk too much about his films. But, after reading this book, it’s clear that doesn’t like discussing what his films mean. Instead he wants the viewer to make up their own mind, to figure out their own interpretation.

Personally I just enjoy watching a David Lynch film for the experience that it is. I’m not all that concerned about it making sense. I don’t want to be able to second guess what is going to happen, the way that I can with most movies.

All of his films are discussed up to and including Mulholland Drive as well as the Twin Peaks TV series. The one thing that did surprise me was that I always thought Blue Velvet was David Lynch’s second film after Eraserhead. Not so, as Blue Velvet was a return to his film making roots after the big budget Dune.

If you’re a fan of David Lynch then this revised edition of the book is a must buy. That’s until it is updated to include INLAND EMPIRE.

Dying scares me, but that’s just because it’s a big change.
