David Lynch's Interview Project begins today


David Lynch has started a project to interview people and post a video every three days for a year.

Jess was our first interview. We found him sitting on the side of the road during the middle of the day. He told us he was waiting for his trailer to be repaired so he could go live alone in the desert. Although hesitant at first, Jess agreed to spare a bit of his time and talk to us. His rugged delivery and appearance soon gave way to a gentle man who was just looking for some peace in his life. After leaving Jess we headed further easy into Arizona to look for our next interview.

  1. Hey Canuck,
    Great ditty that “Arizona,” that. Brought to mind this wonderfuly sappy scene from “Almost Famous.”

  2. gah!
    such a beautiful & interesting new media project — but without RSS?
    *shakes head*

  3. Quite curious to see what California, Southwest outposts Mr. Lynch will hitch his post at. I’m sure he’ll dig up some real characters wherever he goes…

  4. A while back I saw what the weekly program schedule was for KTLA, L.A.’s first TV station, way back in the early days of TV, like the late 40s or early 50s. One of the shows was simply called “Meet Interesting People.” I’ve since thought that somebody oughtta revive a series with that name, and it looks like that’s more or less what Lynch has done here.

  5. I found myself wishing that this interview segment was much, much longer. This barely scratches the surface. Although I suppose it would be too much to ask for a feature length documentary every 3 days.

    David Lynch is an anomaly for me: An absolute genius director, but also a soft-headed, gullible meta-physician.

  6. So far, so Straight Story. Very intrigued by the snippets of dialogue elsewhere on the site – cannot wait for more…..

  7. yeah, it’s so short, it’s barely an interview. I like the concept but a disservice to the people featured. Everyone’s got at least one good story to tell. We’ll see…

  8. These short films are pure poetry. Watch what happens in the background, not just what the interviewee says and does. The director’s concept is obvious: these are representations of what is important to the person on screen, and are not intended to be life-story interviews.
