    What will it take to get Lynch to direct a porno?

    Speed Roadster

    by Yeah I Wrote That

    Was previously recorded for Surveillance. It plays during the end credits, and is by far the best part of the film. Can't wait for this album.

    Get Trent Reznor to collaborate on a few singles, or at the very least, do some remixes. The two know eachother already, I'm sure that would be a match made in bizarro heaven.

    Son, you are disappoint . . .

    by gruntybear

    Somehow I fear Lynch has finally reached his professional and artistic peak and is now on the long, slow slide downward that Lucas, Spielberg and Coppola, amongst others, have already slickened for him.

    by fustfick

    I've really enjoyed all of Lynch's artistic endeavors. But, I really can't wait for him to hop back in the saddle and make another movie. Because movies, more than any other artistic medium, NEED David Lynch.

    David Lynch is maddening to me

    by darthvedder81

    I actually think he's a pretty terrible director but somehow his projects are engrossing and entertaining and not even in a "so bad it's good sort of way." Twins Peaks is so hammy and schlocky yet it absolutely sucks you into it's world. It's like he knew he was an awful writer and director and leveraged that into his stylistic choice. That's kind of genius in a way.

    I remember when David Lynch could tell a coherent story.

    by buggerbugger

    He lost this ability partway through 'Lost Highway' and hasn't recovered it since. It's been nothing but a spiralling nosedive into nonsensical shit from that point on.

    LOST HIGHWAY-one of the worst turds ever to hit cinemas

    by BILLY

    I recall seeing Bill Pullman(hot off INDEPDENCE DAY)on Jay Leno, and he was plugging LOST HIGHWAY. They showed a 10 second scene with the short actor/murderer...and the film looked brilliant. So I dragged friends to see it, only to become part of the most boring,inane mess of a film ever. I "get" he doesnt do traditonal narrative, and so on.BUT that film flatout fucking sucked. The only thing that saves it from being the WORST film ever made(to me), is the song" The Perfect Drug" FROM TRENT REZNOR.

  • It's been almost 25 years since Agent Cooper got stuck in the Black Lodge... how about goin' back to Twin Peaks for a little revisit?

    chmonkey-Apparently you didn't see The Straight Story

    by Samuel Fulmer

    Which was just that. But yeah, Lost Highway started that whole I'm crazy and assuming the personality of someone else type of film he also made with Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire. I'm hoping that Inland was the end of a trilogy (which I do like Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, and Inland Empire), just because I think he pushed that particular story device about as far as it can go.

  • Aug. 15, 2011, 1:58 p.m. CST

    darthvedder81/scratchmonkey

    by mcgoocain

    Lynch does not know that he is a terrible writer and director, because he is neither. The Straight Story was pretty damn coherent, and he's only done 2 features since Lost Highway, so if that is all you have a problem with, not too shabby. I hold Lynch in high regard, and have appreciated all he has done, but I didn't quite get Inland Empire. It seemed to be an experiment that didn't work as a coherent story, but I would rather see a Lynch failure than most of the CGI-heavy crap being churned out for non-discrimintating audiences today. Marmaduke, anyone?

  • Aug. 15, 2011, 2 p.m. CST

    I get the feeling that Lynch is retired from filmmaking

    by Samuel Fulmer

    Sort of the same way Gene Hackman retired from filmmaking, and then announced it years later.

    Wow, A David Lynch Porno??

    by NeonFrisbee

    Choppah, that's brilliant. That would easily be the best porn evar made. He's got a real good eye for the absurdly gorgeous ladies. Go back in time, get Sherilyn Fenn, Madchen Amick, and Sheryl Lee in their primes, and film the greatest three way lesbo scene of all time. Set at One Eyed Jacks, of course...

    INLAND EMPIRE

    by BenBraddock

    Anyone else make it through that movie? I did, but can't say I enjoyed it. It made MULLHOLLAND DRIVE look like a kids movie. Totally confusing, but not in a good, "David Lynch" way. And horribly shot on video. I think he said he'll never go back to shooting on film after switching to video, which is a damn shame.

    Is this CD some weird joke?

    by krabklaw

    If not, he's lost his freakin' mind.

  • Then two years later, Lynch reunited most of the cast and shot additional footage to add to the end of the pilot, turning the whole thing into a movie. Essentially, he (and his writing collaborator) wrote a second episode (around 40 minutes) and stuck it to the end of the 90+ minute pilot. (The opening titles were also shot specifically for the movie, not the pilot.) I think it is fun to watch the end result, knowing this. (Like the subtle way Lynch uses the fact that the lead actresses are two years older by implying that the "real" reality is "uglier".) Imagine if the pilot of LOST never went to series, and two years later they wrote a second episode to wrap everything up, bringing most of the cast back together to shoot this, and then selling it as a feature movie.

    by la_sith

    Bunch of fucking morons. Would love to see your surrealistic films. The only reason I give him a pass for this crappy music is because he's most certainly earned the right to do whatever the fuck he wants.

  • Aug. 15, 2011, 2:57 p.m. CST

    I liked Lost Highway

    by VoiceOfSaruman

    but Inland Empire lost me. I hope he goes back to film. The picture quality was one of a number of things wrong with that movie, in my experience. I'm glad for him, if everything he does, it means he gets to continue to do whatever he wants however he wants it. But I wish he could do some more mainstream work - and when I say that I mean that Blue Velvet is mainstream, by today's standards, vs. something like Inland Empire. I agree that a return to Twin Peaks (as a film) could be great if done right. Though, I doubt my idea of 'done right" is the same as Lynch's. But I think today's cinema still needs 1990's David Lynch as much as 1990 did. I enjoyed Fire Walk With Me for what it was, but Sheryl Lee's performance was over-the-top into cheeseland - probably Lynch's idea.

    by Boscorooty

    For a return to Twin Peaks. 25 Year later, good Coop is still in the lodge. Lynch needs to get him out, dammit. The big problem is that Frank Silva, who played BOB, passed away in 1995. Everyone else is pretty easy to write around, but the absence of BOB would be tough.

    a porno with sherilyn fenn? Have you seen Two Moon Junction?

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    Neither have I, but I have seen the two minute clip where it gets pretty damn interesting. I never thought i'd be staring at Audrey Horne's browneye.<P> Lynch music, just wow. Fire Walk With Me soundtrack is incredible. The Pink Room, Questions in a World of Blue, Sycamore Trees. Absolute world class songwriting. And Inland Empire with Polish Poem and Ghost of Love. Incredible.<P> I love love love Lost Highway. It's dirty and fucked up and wrong and it probably doesn't work, but I love it anyway. The late and lamented writer David Foster Wallace did a great extended piece for Premiere on Lynch and the making of Lost Highway. If you're even remotely interested in Lynch you need to read it. Very funny, in-depth and he absolutely tears Balthazar Getty a new one (he would kiss Lynch's arse to his face then make fun of him behind his back, bum cigarettes from everyone and generally act like a tool). There's hysterical bits about random Lynch interns that just wander around the set looking like they're going to massacre everyone. <P>You can find the full version in 'Consider The Lobster' by DFW.<P> About the only thing that I didn't enjoy of Lynch's was Dune, and we all know the history there. Fire Walk With Me is my favourite film of all time. The atmosphere in that film, it's like nothing before or since. Wow.

    by IWasInJuniorHighDickhead

    'could be' because obviously a thousand things could go wrong with it, but it isn't like so many other properties that are revisited. It's EXACTLY the right time to go back. Time for Coop to come out. Get Isaak, Sutherland and Bowie back if you want to go that route. I'm fine with leaving Peaks as it is, but boy, could they go to some interesting places..

    by la_sith

    I would *love* to see Universal get Lynch to make fixes and give that movie his proper "final cut", but it'll never happen. Lynch has totally written it off as the only time he "sold out." It's too bad because I think it's brilliant sci-fi and unfairly judged.

    Fire Walk With Me deleted scenes

    by animatronicmojo

    For those who don't know that saga (it's in the Wiki), these were scenes shot and cut out of a potential 3 hour and 40 minute version of the movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Many of these can be read in drafts of the shooting script, and involve short scenes with many of the TV cast-members that did not appear in the film. New Line had long planned to release some 17 of these scenes that Lynch had selected, but got into a snit with MK2, the French company that owns the rights to TP:FWWM, over the $100K or so needed to score and remix the audio for these scenes, and it just never happened for either companies' DVD releases. Considering what a worldwide cultural phenomenon Twin Peaks was/is, it is beyond me why Lynch or somebody couldn't cough up the dough to see this done. Surely, they could have made back their investment and more by including these scenes, the last "new" Twin Peaks anyone will ever see- just pathetic. DO IT ALREADY!!!

    Inland Empire- Lynch's swan song?

    by animatronicmojo

    For me, Inland Empire is a brilliant open-ended work, with one the most incredible performances ever by Laura Dern. For fans, I think the film is best enjoyed on DVD with the 75 minutes of scenes ("More Things That Happened") filling in some of the blanks and furthering the mystery. The themes of the film aren't so opaque- it's about sex as a commodity- in prostitution, in Hollywood, and in certain kinds of marriages, with each mirroring the others. The film is also about... much more, but at least that trope is painfully obvious, isn't it? Ditching film for standard def video and making a movie up as you shoot it yourself is a bold experiment (though Lynch is far from the first, Godard went this route a long time ago)- but i think it's an important step. At some point, an artist (not just a director-for-hire) needs to do their own thing 110% and remove themselves from all this studio BS of ownership and entitlement (for example, see my post above). However, IE came out in 2006 and we are still waiting for a new Lynch film with nothing but the occasional rumor in the pipe, so I'm hoping little side projects like this CD, made-in-China purse commercials for Dior, and Duran Duran (??) concerts will be funding something great- but, at 65, maybe he really has retired from filmmaking.

    "Everything is valid. Failures, experiments"...

    by Jay

    One of the most truthful statements I've read on here. Not that I felt that Lynchs latest was a failure (Loved Inland) I will always be compelled to watch a failed attempt (Or dud, bomb, whatever word we choose to call it) from a favorite director over another studio picture form the latest hack. Someone said earlier that Lynch, Coppola, etc should retire. What I complete load of bull. Coppola and Lynch are currently making their most personal projects. They fund it themselves, and they don't give a shit if no one wants to see it. They're the real artists. I see more and more often that an artists personal favorite of theirs tends to differ greatly from the favorite of their fans.

    One word, DUNE

    by Jay Eyler

    As this is one of my favorite books of all time, I've seen every version of this film they've allowed the public to see, and despite a few good performances by secondary characters, this movies sucks ass and totally misses the point of the book. So while some give Lynch a pass for some questionable projects because of some favorite, I'm just the opposite. His name leaves a bad taste in my mouth because of this one project. And no, this is not about me not getting him. I get it. I just don't go crazy for him. Never been a fan of "Look at me, I'm cooky."

    re: "Apparently you didn't see The Straight Story"

    by buggerbugger

    Oddly enough, I only saw that one a few months ago and, while it was certainly coherent, I found it to be fairly dull. It didn't even feel much like a Lynch film, while probably explains why I'd forgotten all about it existing and only stumbled across it on TV recently. If I were making a mental list of Lynch's films, it's one I'd tend to have a blindspot for and so the latter-day Lynches would be the 'Lost Highway' / 'Mullholland Drive' / 'Inland Empire' trilogy of... weirdness.

    His movies basically take total control of my emotions when I am watching them. At least his better ones do. Also I think his stranger movies are his best. This includes Eraserhead, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive (personal favorite) and Inland Empire. He can also tell a straightforward story amazingly well, as in The Elephant Man and (of course) The Straight Story. The in-between type movies, the ones that have fairly understandable, linear plots with surreal elements are his weakest imo. These would include Wild at Heart, Dune and Fire Walk With Me. I really wanted to love FWWM, and parts of it were great, but overall I didn’t think it worked that well. I would like to see it again as it has been some time. I would be up for a new Twin Peaks movie but I think it would be a risky endeavor. Wait, I forgot about Blue Velvet! That pretty much blows my whole thesis here since that is an in-between type movie that is also a strong contender for being his best. Ah, fuck it.

    Lynch's films are perfectly coherent...

    by Billy_D_Williams

    its ignorant mouth breathers who've had their taste destroyed by the Hollywood-3-act-structure-likeable-characters-and-happy endings-popcorn formula, who can't seem to process Lynch's films. They're mainly avante garde, experimental works, but they are perfectly coherent in mood, style and tone, which is the language Lynch uses to tell his stories these days, not dialogue, 3 act structure and happy endings. If you think his films dont make sense, go watch a fucking pepsi commercial.

    flax, ERASERHEAD was Stanley Kubrick's favorite film...little known fact

    I'd just be happy with a film about Gordon Cole's team

    My favourite part of FWWM is arguably the Stanley/Desmond investigation. I can't get enough of that film. First time I watched it I was about twelve and I hadn't watched the series. So weird and confusing it was otherworldly. Love the theory that it and the X Files take place in the same universe.

    Lynch GOT Kubrick, too

    Judging from all that he borrowed from The Shining for Twin Peaks' Great Northern Hotel.

    Me too- such a great, great intro. That was supposed to be Agent Cooper investigating the Teresa Banks murder, but Kyle MacLachlan has said that at the the time he'd been feeling pretty resentful towards Lynch for abandoning the second season (until the finale) and letting the show get so far off track, so would only sign up for a limited shoot. Creating new agents was a great idea, and it's seriously, too bad, that this film was such a commercial/critical flop. A great place to start with a return to Twin Peaks would be Gordon Cole's team, now 25 years later, still investigating the mysterious disappearances of Special Agents Phillip Jeffries and Dale Cooper. It will never happen, but a man can dream, can't he?

    Lynch is THE man.

    by SAILOR_RIPLEY

    If you don't appreciate his films, you have no taste, plain and simple. Mulholland Dr. is a heartbreaking story, if you have the patience and attention to figure it out, and is the best film of the new century. It also has the bonus of starring the delicious Naomi Watts. I remember the Lynch article in Premiere about the making of lost Highway, iwasinjuniorhighdickhead. Loved how the writer blasted Getty for being such a two-faced prick. I miss that magazine. People that bash Lynch need not worry, There are plenty more Michael Bay types out there making movies for you.

    Twin Peaks is my favorite Lynch creation

    by lv_426

    I know that might be blasphemous to say, because Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, and Lost Highway/Mulholland Drive are all really awesome, but Twin Peaks just takes the cake. The weird eccentric characters who populated the town of Twin Peaks. The mystery and intrigue, laced with noir and a bit of melodrama. Damn good coffee. The taste sensation when maple syrup collides with ham. Creepy Native American mythology and malevolent spirits... "Cooper... Cooper... Cooper" Slow as all hell old man room service when you're bleeding out. A fish in the percolator. Andy and his buffoonery. The Log Lady. The brilliance and wisdom of Major Garland Briggs. The Red Room and the dancing, backwards talking midget. I could go on and on... I just love Twin Peaks. I wish David Lynch would make another Twin Peaks series, maybe a whole new set of characters set in the present day version of Twin Peaks. That would be something to see. If not that, then he should do another creepy, noir-infused show with eccentric characters. AMC, HBO, FX, etc. could use a good Lynchian series like that.

    Lost Highway Soundtrack

    Manson's Apple of Sodom is a lot better than Reznor's Perfect Drug.
