✎ He spent his childhood traveling around the United States, before going on to study painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. He moved to Los Angeles, where he produced his first motion picture, the surrealist horror film Eraserhead (1977). He was later employed to direct a biographical film about a deformed man, titled The Elephant Man, from which he gained mainstream success. He created his own television series with Mark Frost, the popular murder mystery Twin Peaks. Three of his films operated on „dream logic“, non-linear narrative structures: Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire. He embraced the Internet as a medium, producing several web-based shows. Lynch has received three Academy Award nominations for Best Director, and a nomination for best screenplay. He has won France’s César Award for Best Foreign Film twice, as well as the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive are widely considered by critics to be among the greatest films of their respective decades. He founded the David Lynch Foundation, to fund the teaching of Transcendental Meditation in schools.

    Catch ideas… my favourite interview with lynch gifts

  16. voodoochild1975az sagt:

    I would say he is VERY concerned with success. But his idea of success might not be what others consider success.

    Great example… Lucas asked him to direct Return of the Jedi… I wish I was making that up. Actually happened. Lynch didn’t want to do it. It held no interest for him. The next day, he tried to talk Lucas into directing it himself. His agent was upset, he just walked away from who know how many millions.

    But to Lynch, that was the right choice and I am sure he is more proud of Blue Velvet than he’d have been of his version of RoTJ. Blue Velvet is a weird movie that only made a fraction of what RotJ did at the box office… but in his view, Blue Velvet is a ’success‘ because he executed what was in his head in a way that he liked the result.

    There are better known and wealthier film makers. But for my money, there aren’t any _better_ film makers than Lynch. So how do we define success? I put him up there with Kubrick, Hitchcock… he has a handful of peers in my opinion, but no one better. I bet Michael Bay has more money in his bank account… but you couldn’t pay me to see one his films. So by my criteria of success, Lynch is the far more successful film maker. From Bay’s perspective, and criteria of success, he is very successful… even if I think he’s horrible.

    So what does Lynch consider ’success‘?

  17. Kandi Gloss sagt:

    I don’t really think that’s what it’s trying to do, I think it’s just presenting the ideas that lynch considers most important, and it seems to be right, you can do what you want with these ideas, you can even look further into lynch if you didn’t know about him before. Also I fail to see how this video „misinterprets“ anything. The maker of the video does not interject any of his own ideas but lets clips of lynch speak for himself. Also, I think it’s a bit silly and overly idealistic to think that Lynch is not concerned with „success“, he is a director like any other director, if he doesn’t find success he is not putting food on his table, that may not be what you want to hear, you might want to hear that a „true“ drector would go starving and only care about pure art, but that isn’t the reality. Sure he may be a directing with a striking and sometimes disturbing artistic vision, but he has been very successful with said artistic vision.

  18. Don’t left out the „rule number 9 is my favorite“ part

  19. anchorbuildings sagt:

    Chris Wright I think it’s a fair comment. It’s trying to reduce David Lynch to something simple and somehow seems to misinterpret everything Lynch is doing. That said I enjoyed the video. I don’t think David Lynch is concerned with ’success‘ though.
