Wouldn't call him pretentious. I don't think he has any pretentions of being smarter and deeper than anyone else. He is, and I mean this in the most positive sense, just an incredibly unusual person with an incredibly unusual thought process and his movies reflect that.
He's not pretentious, or he's really hiding it well. I don't lightly use the term genius and when you watch Inland Empire, you can't scream genius really.
He is a very talented Artist and one of my favorite directors, that is for sure. I'm very excited to see what he'll do with the new season of Twin Peaks.
He supported Obama in the last two elections and his depictions of conservative Americana are usually deeply subversive. Wouldn't call him a conservative. More of a realist with an idealistic streak.
Someone gets it.
I met him earlier last year and had an opportunity to talk quite a bit. Super nice guy, really interesting.
Although... he was a little too preachy on the Transcendental meditation.

what do you guys do?
I always felt like Inception was an incredibly unremarkable heist movie with the dream element awkwardly tacked on but never used for anything interesting. It's really kind of a shame because you could have done something very creative with the premise of people breaking into dreams to gather information but... well, he didn't.
Exactly. It was a medicore heist movie, in a dream world... Apparently. WHERE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING?
But why does everything they do not make sense and suck?
And why does it not seem dream like at all?
I kind of liked the idea of him confronting not his wife, but his distorted, hysterical memory of his wife, in his own unsconsciousness. Everything before and after that was both boring and falsifyingly dramatic without real tension.
This show doesn't get talked about enough. It's the hidden gem of Lynch's filmography.

You plebs make me sick
Wild at Heart started off really strong but I felt it kinda lost it in the last third. I liked it when it was about Sailor and Lula going on a road trip to Vegas, getting into weird situations and being chased by excentric criminals. Once they got to the bank robbery and sailors prison sentence the whole movie kinda lost its momentum.
He has great taste in women.
Laura Dern, not withstanding.
Just watched Eraserhead... where should I go from here?
It was an easy film to digest desu, wasn't that mind-blowing and even plebs would be able to understand it thematically, but the imagery was on-point.
Lynch films (all great films, really, but especially Lynch films) aren't about a ''point'' that you get. They are not a math equation.
Falling in love with a Lynch film is a personal thing. The close analysis comes later, and even then that analysis should be only for you.
I really think it's about how reality is what we perceive to be our lives, but we're in fact living vicariously through our fantasies and media consumption. Once the veil is broken reality is actually a dark evil that we can't understand.
lynch has literally godtier waifu taste
with the exception of dern, ugh
i mean look at anything he's done, you cannot even keep up with the potential life partners
