    i like to imagine that david lynch and i are sitting down in a little studio, bits of wood and knick knacks scattered as we work on strange little paintings together as he tells me all about his life experiences and i just intently watch and listen because i've never been more enthralled with a person's life experiences before.

    this film is pretty much the equivalent of the above imagining.

    I could listen to David talk about his hatred of school for hours.

    "Powerful hate."
