Lynch on Lynch

Lynch on Lynch (Powell's Books - new or secondhand)

An fascinating foray into the abstract world of David Lynch, the director of Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Wild At Heart, Lost Highway and The Straight Story.

The book is based on a series of lengthy interviews by editor Rodley, which bring out the folksy nature the shy boy from Missoula, Montana, and his talent for abstract painting. Often, in the course of the book, Lynch shies away from explaining his movies, on the basis that if he could explain them, he wouldn't have made them. Lynch's works lies in the realm, as Rodley says, of the unspecific, the uncanny, not in terms of mere subtext. As in his paintings, Lynch's approach to film making is less rational, and more in terms of feeling the movie, allowing intuition to take the lead, creating the mysterious limbo dreamscapes of Lynchland.

Why are we selling this? See our related article about Twin Peaks...and when we interviewed Thomas Truax, he had an interesting Lynch anecdote.
