Memorable Quotes:

There’s not very many filmmakers like David [David Lynch], particularly in America. He’s so brave and courageous. He creates from a place that is unknown. He’s not following any blueprints. He’s following an unconscious urge and that’s hard to do nowadays when people want to know how much you’re going to make on this film on the first day of filming. They want to know what they can recoup by day 90, or day 120, or day 180, or whatever. And David just doesn’t work that way and that just doesn’t exist anymore.
