The Many Obsessions of David Lynch

Updated 14 Jan 2018 1.0k views20 items

David Lynch is an obsessive person. He’d have to be, given the care, cosmology, and semiotics that goes into his films and television programs. Thing is, his intense level of obsession reaches beyond his work, permeating his life. Admittedly, a lot of the things David Lynch likes are things that everyone else likes, he’s just fascinated in them in a way that’s incomprehensible to anyone else, at least until he explains his obsession in a way that only David Lynch can.

For many of Lynch’s fans, trying to get inside the auteur’s head and understand what David Lynch obsessions mean to the rest of us is a full time gig. If you’re trying to solve the puzzle of one of the last living enigmas, and one of the towering independent voices in American cinema, drop two silver dollars through the mail slot and keep reading. 

If you don’t know Lynch from his films, there’s a good chance you’re aware of the David Lynch transcendental meditation workshops attended by celebrities weird and non-weird alike. Or maybe you know about his love of coffee and cigarettes. No matter what you know about Lynch, and even if you’ve only seen some of his work, you’re privy to at least one thing that he was focused on for long enough to get inside of it and tear it to shreds.

If you need a sip of the David Lynch weird brew we don’t get enough of these days, continue down the rabbit hole, and discover something new about one of America’s greatest filmmakers.
