Personal Quote:

I don't think that people accept the fact that life doesn't make sense. I think it makes people terribly uncomfortable. It seems like religion and myth were invented against that, trying to make sense out of it. See more »

Trivia:

After the financial disaster that was Dune (1984), Lynch and Dino De Laurentiis were almost ready to part company but Lynch showed Dino the script for Blue Velvet (1986), which he had been working on for some time, and the two combined talents to make the seminal 1986 classic. See more »

Trademark:

Constant references to dreams as a way of connecting the plot and twists in his films. See more »

Star Sign:

Aquarius
