TOP 100 REVIEWERon 12 September 2009
David Lynch's talent transcends movie making. He is an accomplished video artist, photographer, painter and poet. And this book, based on a number of interviews with the Renaissance Man of Arts himself, offers more than an amble glimpse into his psyche.

Starting from his birth in Missoula, Montana and his upbringing in Sandpoint,Idaho - and a string of different cities where his family moved due to his father transfers, Lynch's growing up is a series of mesmerizing snapshots. And then, from the success of THE ELEPHANT MAN and the financial fiasco of DUNE to the penultimate TV series, TWIN PEAKS and the hypnotic MULHOLLAND DRIVE.

Lynch is holding nothing back. From his inspirations, obsessions and creative process to the inner workings of Hollywood studios and the synergic balance of picture, story and music, this book is a sine qua non for either his fans or, more importantly, for aspiring movie makers.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Mr Lynch has never given anything away, so this collection of interviews gives a rare and probably the best insight into his heavily-cloaked thoughts. Still feels like Mr Rodley is trying to squeeze blood out of a stone, but kept the interest going.

This is surely a book for in-depth David Lynch fans. It covers his career from the start and up to "Lost Highway", spending rather a little too much time at "Twin Peaks", along the way. Also has insights into his artistic career. Very well researched and written in a question and answer format with additional information in straight text at the beginning of each chapter.

A must-read if you are interested in David Lynch, his films or filmmaking in general, this book of in depth interviews is fascinating and insightful. A great and informed interviewer, asking intelligent and thorough questions about Lynch's films, ideas, methods and experiences. I love the way it breaks down each film in Lynch's filmography and allows time to examine the work (up until the time of printing). It would be good to have an updated version with Inland Empire and his digital fascination included. Such an inspiring book if you are a filmmaker.

If you are interested in the excellent director David Lynch, this book is fascinating. It reveals his quirky, genius nature and is very entertaining and at times very funny-"Incest bothers moste people. Probably because there, you know, doing it at home!(laughs)"

The best parts of this book deal more with David Lynch himself, his likes and dislikes, and his opinions on art. His process is explored indepth, though he remains (typically) enigmatic on most of the meanings behind his work. The book shows how his life is his artistic wellspring.
