Overview

Few directors in the past three decades have produced movies more compelling, controversial, or confounding than David Lynch (b. l946). And fewer still have been so reluctant to talk about what they do. In this collection, editor Richard A. Barney has chosen the rare interviews in which Lynch opens up to questions rather than deflecting them. Whether Lynch is talking about his earliest film shorts such as The Grandmother, the break-out surrealist feature Eraserhead, the hit TV series Twin Peaks, his Oscar-nominated The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, or his most recent experimental tours de force, Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire, he stresses the power of image and sound to communicate his vision.

David Lynch: Interviews is the: first survey on conversations with the director covering the broad spectrum of his artistic activities throughout his career, including filmmaking, painting, music production, and furniture design. It also registers the intense international interest in Lynch's work, with interviews from French and Spanish sources translated here for the first time.
