“All the movies are about strange worlds that you can’t go into unless you build them and film them. That’s what’s so important about film to me. I just like going into strange worlds.”
David Lynch’s films might not all be good, but they’re always unique and interesting. He offers up a cinematic vision like no other, combining classic Hollywood tropes and Americana with offbeat European-influenced surrealism and transgressive sex and violence like no one else can. This sensibility extends to his other artistic pursuits as well, most notably television. I’m always excited to see what Lynch has up his sleeve.
