    David Lynch recalls after showing his dad his current living conditions while painting/sculpturing:

    "It was then my father said to me 'David, you shouldn't ever have children ever.'  Which was an odd thing to mention because my girlfriend was pregnant..."

    It's the kind of story that you'd expect to hear exploring the mind of a Surrealist like Lynch.

  • ★★★½ review by Jordi Sánchez-Navarro on Letterboxd

    Maravilloso retrato emocional del genio. Como dice el tópico, el único problema es que sabe a poco (acaba donde otros empiezan). Aunque, en realidad, quizá sea esa su mayor virtud.

  • ★★★½ review by Justin LaLiberty on Letterboxd

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

    "Powerful hate."
