Quotes by David Lynch

  1. A film – especially when it’s a personal film – is going to hit somebody or it’s not. There’s nothing you can do about it.
  2. A filmmaker doesn’t have to suffer to show suffering. You just have to understand it. You don’t have to die to shoot a death scene.
  3. A lot of artists think they want anger. But a real, strong, bitter anger occupies the mind, leaving no room for creativity.
  4. A lot of music doesn’t do one thing or another. It just doesn’t do anything. Then there are those pieces of music that thrill your soul. It’s such a wide range, and it’s really interesting that we all love different things.
  5. A lot of painters listen to music, I think, while they paint. But I hate to do that. It’s a horror. I can’t really listen to the music. I’m not really concentrating on it, and I’m not really concentrating on the painting.
  6. A poet could write volumes about diners, because they’re so beautiful. They’re brightly lit, with chrome and booths and Naugahyde and great waitresses. Now, it might not be so great in the health department, but I think diner food is really worth experiencing periodically.
  7. Absurdity is what I like most in life, and there’s humor in struggling in ignorance. If you saw a man repeatedly running into a wall until he was a bloody pulp, after a while it would make you laugh because it becomes absurd.
  8. An artist makes a painting, and nobody bugs him or her about it. It’s just you and your painting. To me, that’s the way it should be with film as well.
  9. As a kid, I was always building things. My father had a shop in the house, and we built things – we were kind of a project family. I started out as a painter, and then painting led to cinema, and in cinema, you get to build so many things, or help build them.
  10. Building a set is like building a place, but it’s a temporary place, because sets usually get torn down. Kind of unfortunate.
  11. Cinema is a medium that can translate ideas.
  12. Digital video is so beautiful. It’s lightweight, modern, and it’s only getting better. It’s put film into the La Brea Tar Pits.
  13. Every viewer is going to get a different thing. That’s the thing about painting, photography, cinema.
  14. Everyone is on the internet but they’re not all talking with each other. There are groups upon groups out there, but they don’t talk to one another. So while the internet brings everyone into a shared space, it does not necessarily bring them together.
  15. Film can’t just be a long line of bliss. There’s something we all like about the human struggle.
  16. Francis Bacon is one of my giant inspirations. I just love him to pieces.
  17. Happy accidents are real gifts, and they can open the door to a future that didn’t even exist. It’s kind of nice sometimes to set up something to encourage or allow happy accidents to happen.
  18. Humor is very interesting to me. My films are not comedies, but there’s comedy in them from time to time, absurdities, just like in real life.
  19. I always loved smokestack industry, and I love towns or cities that have grown up around factories.
  20. I always say Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is my biggest influence. But for painters, I like many, many painters, but I love Francis Bacon the most, and Edward Hopper.
  21. I believe in creative control. No matter what anyone makes, they should have control over it.
  22. I didn’t really grow up listening to blues, because I grew up in the Northwest. It wasn’t really the center for blues.
  23. I didn’t watch much TV as a kid and I don’ t watch it now. I don’ t find anything beautiful or unique to the medium, and the only thing you can do on TV that you can’t do in film is make a continuing story – which is so cool!
  24. I discovered that if one looks a little closer at this beautiful world, there are always red ants underneath.
  25. I don’t like Thomas Edison. I’m a fan of Nicolai Tesla.
  26. I don’t paint the town red. But when I do go out, people always want to touch my hair. It happens every time.
  27. I don’t remember my dreams too much. I hardly have ever gotten ideas from nighttime dreams. But I love daydreaming and dream logic and the way dreams go.
  28. 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.
  29. I have no problem getting financing. I have a problem catching ideas that I fall in love with for the next feature.
  30. I like L.A. because of the light. The light makes me feel so good. It’s really beautiful. And there’s something about L.A. being so spread out that gives you a feeling of freedom. Light and freedom.
  31. I like cappuccino, actually. But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all.
  32. I like things to be orderly.
  33. I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.
  34. I love Bob Dylan. Who doesn’t? He tapped into some kind of vein and it keeps on keeping on. There’s nobody like him. He’s unique, and just… way out cool.

  36. I love music, of course, and many, many, many genres. There are hardly any songs I would say that I hate. There’s a couple, and I don’t even know exactly why I don’t like them.
  37. I love paint. I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.

  40. I supported myself by delivering the ‘Wall Street Journal’ and doing odd jobs. I love plumbing and carpentry.
  41. I think part of the reason ideas haven’t come in is that the world of cinema is changing so drastically, and in a weird way, feature films I think have become cheap. Everything is kind of throwaway. It’s experienced and then forgotten.
  42. I think that commercials can really ruin a song. You know that the person sold the song for a good deal of money, and that was the tradeoff. But, music and picture can marry in a beautiful way, and the reverse also.
  43. I think that ideas exist outside of ourselves. I think somewhere, we’re all connected off in some very abstract land. But somewhere between there and here ideas exist.

  50. I’ve said many, many, many unkind things about Philadelphia, and I meant every one.
  51. If we didn’t want to upset anyone, we would make films about sewing, but even that could be dangerous. But I think finally, in a film, it is how the balance is and the feelings are. But I think there has to be those contrasts and strong things within a film for the total experience.
  52. If you stay true to your ideas, film-making becomes an inside-out, honest kind of process.
  53. In Hollywood, more often than not, they’re making more kind of traditional films, stories that are understood by people. And the entire story is understood. And they become worried if even for one small moment something happens that is not understood by everyone.
  54. Intuition is the key to everything, in painting, filmmaking, business – everything. I think you could have an intellectual ability, but if you can sharpen your intuition, which they say is emotion and intellect joining together, then a knowingness occurs.
  55. It makes me uncomfortable to talk about meanings and things. It’s better not to know so much about what things mean. Because the meaning, it’s a very personal thing, and the meaning for me is different than the meaning for somebody else.
  56. Life is very, very complicated, and so films should be allowed to be, too.
  57. Life should be blissful, and blissful doesn’t mean just a small happiness. It’s huge. It is profound.

  62. Music deals with time and timing. It’s so magical, but when you get into it, every little sound and every little space between the sounds, it’s critical, so critical. And if it’s not there, it not only feels wrong, but it ruins things.
  63. My cow is not pretty, but it is pretty to me.

  68. Some things we forget. But many things we remember on the mental screen, which is the biggest screen of all.

  75. Television provides the opportunity for an ongoing story – the opportunity to meld the cast and the characters and a world, and to spend more time there.
  76. The business side of film has goofed up so many things, but even that’s changing. It happened to the music industry and now it’s happening to the film studios. It’s crazy what’s going on. But artists should have control of their work; especially if, as I always say, you never turn down a good idea and never take a bad idea.
  77. The cinema is really built for the big screen and big sound, so that a person can go into another world and have an experience.
