it was ok
bookshelves: non-fiction

Not much insight into Lynch's creative process, which is what I was really hoping for. Actually, I was a bit surprised how much of a Transcendental Meditation Evangelist David Lynch comes off as in this book. Still, it did have it's moments. I liked the discussion of why as a director he is against commentary tracks, because he feels they spoil the spell that a film can weave. In recent years, I think I have done this to myself many times by watching DVD's that dissect movies too thoroughly, and severely diminishing their power.
Best chapter was in regards to Mullholland Drive, where Lynch admits he doesn't have a clue what the box and the key means. Hysterical.
