ARTICLE Hollywood Reporter: Lynch/Oz Review

Alexandre O. Philippe's doc explores some of the ways 'The Wizard of Oz' helped shape the Lynchian universe. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-reviews/lynch-oz-film-review-tribeca-2022-1235162572/ It shouldn’t surprise anyone that an artist who famously goes fishing for material beneath the surface of his conscious mind (via meditation) would frequently “catch ideas” with bits of childhood memories stuck to them, hard as barnacles. For David Lynch, whose films conjure some...

The singer blended dream-pop with Americana to eerie effect, and Lynch’s uncanny work elevated her songs to the sublime. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2022/jun/10/julee-cruise-died-david-lynchs-americana-twin-peaks-blue-velvet The celestial sigh that we think of as the voice of Julee Cruise was a collaborative fiction. In 1986 David Lynch was obsessed with This Mortal Coil’s version of Song to the Siren, sung by Elizabeth Fraser, and desperate to feature it in his movie Blue Velvet...
ARTICLE Twin Peaks: The Return Is More Relevant Than Ever

As we are increasingly fed fan service and nostalgia in our films and TV shows, Twin Peaks: The Return still leads a ferocious battle against it five years on. “Is It future? Or is it past?” When the One-Armed Man Mike (Al Strobel) posed that question to Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) in the second part of Twin Peaks: The Return, he may very well have been echoing the thoughts of the viewers. After all, Mike asked that question while sitting in the Red Room, the...
INLAND EMPIRE David Lynch’s Unfathomable Masterpiece

A digital reissue of Inland Empire reveals the charms of the director’s inscrutability. By 4 o’clock, shooting had begun with the lumberjack, monkey, and one-legged woman all on set—they’re all prominently featured in the compellingly inscrutable final sequence of Inland Empire, which has been recently remastered and is now touring cinemas around the country. The anecdote is a testament to how classically “Lynchian” the film is, loaded with visual details that invite intense analysis but...

ARTICLE Telegraph: David Lynch rumours are growing by the day

The lack of a Cannes announcement hasn’t stopped the whisper train – is the master of arthouse bizarrerie returning after 16 years? I have no new film coming out,” David Lynch said earlier this week. “It is not happening. I don’t have a project. I have nothing at Cannes.” For admirers of the Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks director, the meaning of his words couldn’t be clearer: a new David Lynch film was on the way, and it was definitely going to be premiering at Cannes next month. And...

Q: What initially excited you about the digital technology you used on “Inland Empire” when you were shooting? A: It was so lightweight and fast. Small lights, lightweight camera, long takes — those three things right there change everything. Of course, now you’ve got digital cameras that are giant with lenses that weigh 50,000 pounds and you’re back in the old world, with a long time to wait for lighting. But there are also smaller and smaller cameras that have more and more features —...

DUNE AV CLUB: Lynch reverses course on Dune Director’s Cut

AVC: Some notable filmmakers have returned to their works years later with re-edits, because just as a viewer’s relationship to a piece of art can change over time, so too can a creator’s. Was a new narrative cut something you ever considered with Inland Empire? DL: No. But Dune—people have said, “Don’t you want to go back and fiddle with Dune?” And I was so depressed and sickened by it, you know? I want to say, I loved everybody that I worked with; they were so fantastic. I loved all the...
