Room to dream

AVC: What can cinema do to an idea?

DL: Cinema is a medium that can translate ideas. But wood can translate ideas, too. You have wood and then you get a chair. Some ideas are for different things.


AVC: What about how [DV] looks?

DL: I like the way it looks. It's more like 1930s 35mm, in that there's not so much information. There's something about not seeing everything perfectly. There's more room to dream. It comes gently into a kind of impression, which can be very beautiful.

—From an interview with David Lynch in The Onion

Bonus track: Some notes on (and video of!) Lynch's recent B&N appearance, in which he discussed Transcendental Meditation, can be found over at the Driftwood site.
