Bizarre Director David Lynch May Stop Making Bizarre Movies

Fans of backwards-talking dwarves, elaborate snakeskin jackets, severed ears and amnesiac lesbianism are about to be very, very disappointed: In a new interview with director David Lynch, the filmmaker expresses doubts that he'll ever make a movie again. In an interview with The Independent, ostensibly about his new album (yes, he also makes really weird albums), Lynch said, "My ideas are not what you'd call commercial, and money really drives the boat these days. So I don't know what my future is. I don't have a clue what I'm going to be able to do in the world of cinema."

Oh no! What are undergraduate film school students going to have to stay up and discuss after smoking questionable weed? Get More »

It's nearly a new year, so don't you think it's about time you followed some new people on Twitter? By now, Kim Kardashian's tweets are old hat, Lindsay Lohan's flails at public normalcy have gotten lame and Kanye has run out of water bottles to be responsible for.

Are You Ready for David Lynch's New ... Coffee?!

David Lynch Coffee

News alert: David Lynch is now just f**king with us.

Lynch, of course, is known for his totally out there, creepy and disturbing films — you know, stuff like "Blue Velvet" and "Eraserhead." And as his experimental solo album (?) showed last fall, he's not above trading on his reputation for weirdness. But now he's really taken it to another level thanks to his latest enterprise: David Lynch Signature Cup Organic Coffee.

And the commercial has to be seen to be believed. If then. Get More »

Film Is Dead in Keanu Reeves' 'Side by Side' Trailer

Side by Side
Company Films

Will actual film -- you know, the 35mm kind of stuff -- be little more than a novelty by 2015?

That's what they say, which means digital filmmaking may be poised to become the norm in Hollywood, a transition that's already spurning much debate and discussion (not to mention lamentation). Does digital take the "art" out of filmmaking? Is digital making it impossible to discern the real deal from the amateur shooting in his backyard? And what the heck does James Cameron mean with "You can't shoot 3-D on film?" Get More »

'Blue Velvet' Even Bluer on New Blu-ray

Blue Velvet Blu-ray

We miss David Lynch terribly.

Don't panic—the inimitable 65-year-old director of "Eraserhead," "The Elephant Man" and Lost Highway" has not died or retired, but he seems to have turned his back on film for the time being. His last movie, 2006's "Inland Empire," was an all-digital production that was obtuse even for Lynch's standards. Instead, Lynch seems more interested in music nowadays—he directed a concert for Duran Duran that streamed live from Los Angeles and he just put out a new album today titled "Crazy Clown Time."

The release of "Crazy Clown Time" coincides with the Blu-ray debut of "Blue Velvet," his gorgeously filmed 1986 masterpiece starring Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, Dennis Hopper and Isabella Rossellini for which Lynch was nominated for a Best Director Oscar. The story is about clean-cut Jeffrey Beaumont (MacLachlan), a college student who returns home to the small town of Lumberton to assist with the family business after his father's illness only to find a severed human ear in a field. Jeffrey brings the ear to the police chief and sets out to do some amateur investigating with the help of the chief's daughter, Sandy (Dern). Get More »

Q&A: 'The Lion King' Lioness Moira Kelly

Moira Kelly has a warm, distinctive voice that "The Lion King" fans will instantly recognize as the voice of adult Nala. Kelly returned to voice Nala in two straight-to-video sequels and is excited to experience "The Lion King" in 3D with her own children in theaters before the highest-grossing hand-drawn animated film in history makes its Blu-ray debut. 

Over the years, Kelly has made an impression in various TV and movie roles, such as figure skater Kate Moseley in the fan-favorite romantic comedy "The Cutting Edge." We sat down with Simba's main lioness and had a candid, "hakuna matata" chat with her about her own lion-like qualities, "The Lion King"'s enduring impact on her family, her prowess on ice skates and why David Lynch showed her dead things in his refrigerator.  Get More »

It's been five long years since David Lynch's last movie, "Inland Empire," hit theaters, but if you think Hollywood's premiere auteur has been sitting on his hands, you've got another thing coming.

And that thing is an album of synth-pop called "Crazy Clown Time."

Well, why the f**k not?

Straight from the too-crazy-to-be-fake department comes this bit of news: according to a new press release from Lynch, the director has been hard at work on a musical magnum opus called "Crazy Clown Time." Get More »
