Wild At Heart Laura Dern David Lynch
Having worked with David Lynch across three films—"Blue Velvet," "Wild At Heart" and his last movie, 2006's "Inland Empire"—Laura Dern perhaps knows a thing or two about the director's process. And particularly given that Lynch has shown little to no interest, at least publicly, about making another feature, the actress might be the next most logical person to ask if Lynch is going to make a movie again. And, it would appear that despite his ventures into art and music, Lynch may not have left the movies too far behind.

Criterion/September 2014
It's the middle of the month, and we know what that means. Well, for us, it means realizing we have $70 to last us until payday, but for the more frugal cinephiles among you, it means that it's time for Criterion to announce what they've got coming up three months down the line. And once more, there are some treats in store.

Twin Peaks
He might not be showing any signs of returning to filmmaking, preferring to focus on releasing music and tutoring Louie in how to host a late-night show, but that doesn't mean David Lynch has given up entirely. The director's been intimately involved with the new Blu-ray set for his seminal and hugely influential TV show "Twin Peaks," which hits at the end of July, and the first fruits of that are starting to appear online.

Return of The Jedi, Lynch
As you probably know by now, David Lynch was once approached by George Lucas to direct “Return Of The Jedi” before Richard Marquand eventually took the job. In the book “Lynch on Lynch” he said, “I went to meet George Lucas, who had offered me the third 'Star Wars' to direct, and I’ve never even really liked science fiction. I like elements of it, but it needs to be combined with other genres. And, obviously, ‘Star Wars’ was totally George’s thing.”

Dumbland
Ah, David Lynch, the highest of high-brows, the maker of swooning, subtle, surrealist masterpieces rich in cinematic lore and strange sexual undertones. And also of crudely animated shorts full of fart jokes, profuse swearing, obscene non-sequiturs and bestiality gags. Huh?

David Lynch, BAM
David Lynch is a tough interview subject. Reticent and reluctant, he doesn’t want to vaguely spell out anything and the filmmaker/artist is much more interested in your response to his work. New York Public Library's director of public programs Paul Holdengräber is also a bit of an odd individual. So as the host of Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)’s rare conversation with David Lynch, the duo made for a strange match.

Watch: Video For David Lynch's 'The Big Dream' Remixed And Directed By Moby

The Big Dream David Lynch Moby
So, last year David Lynch dropped The Big Dream, his second full-length album, and it was mostly well received if you're into his sorta weirdo approach to rock 'n' roll. In typical Lynch form, the promotion has been scattershot and intriguing in equal measures, and today comes another reminder that The Big Dream is a thing you can buy if you're interested.

Noah, Russell Crowe, Aronofsky
This week sees the release of “Noah,” and it’s notable for a number of reasons. For one, it’s that it’s a relatively rare Biblical movie not aimed principally at religious audiences (which may or may not pay off). For another, it’s the latest film from “Requiem For A Dream” and “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky. But perhaps more than anything else, it’s a movie that costs $125 million, almost four times as much as the director’s most expensive previous film, “The Fountain,” the helmer having been given the keys to Paramount’s war chest after the surprise smash success of “Black Swan,” which made nearly $300 million worldwide.

Double and Doppelgangers feature
In a culture of cellphone-snapped selfies it’s hard to imagine a time when people might have been afraid of their own image. But Facebook walls and Instagram feeds to the contrary, for the vastly longer portion of human history, to see a perfect replica of yourself was an uncanny event, impossible even, exemplified by the belief shared by some native tribes in the early days of photography, that it could take away your soul. Or perhaps they were just being super cautious about ownership of their brand image.

Sure, he's best known for his catalog of distinct, surreal and terrifying pictures, but David Lynch is a man of many artistic hats. He's a painter, musician, weatherman, coffee enthusiast, transcendental meditation advocate, nightclub entrepreneur and more. But sometimes you need a bit of pocket cash as you jump from endeavor to endeavor, and like so many before (and after) him, Lynch has sometimes found his working on commercials.
