    The prince of weird

    I've been waiting for this series to feature David Lynch and now it's finally here. And it's almost perfect with a few glitches here and there. As we read, there are many great interviews with the prince of surreal cinema or as he calls it abstract. Lynch is also a photographer and a painter and we learn a lot about the man and his works. Now all we need is a featured look at Cronenberg and Gilliam and all will be done for my taste in great filmmakers of today.
