— Notes —
- The Impossible David Lynch by Todd McGowan — Here’s the main resource we used to help structure our conversation this week. This is an excellent introduction to Lacanian analysis by way of Lynch’s films, and regardless of whether or not you prefer Lacanian theory this book does an excellent job of breaking down the films and making sense of them. The chapter on Dune does a good job re-contextualizing the film within the trajectory of David Lynch’s “real” films. There’s lots of interesting stuff there.
- “Lynch, David” by Thomas Caldwell from Senses of Cinema — Here’s the great director profile on David Lynch from Senses of Cinema.
- David Lynch on Wookies and Salad
- Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence
