Eagle Scout Missoula Montana

Lost Highway 1996

„It's a dangerous thing to say what a picture is. If things get too specific, the dream stops. There are things that happen sometimes that open a door that lets you soar out and feel a bigger thing. Like when the mind gets involved in a mystery. It's a thrilling feeling. When you talk about things, unless youíre a poet, a big thing becomes smaller. I don't like pictures that are one genre only, so this is a combination of things. It has a kind of a horror film, it has a kind of a thriller. But basically it's a mystery.“
„It's about a man in trouble, a thinking man in trouble ... a psychogenic fugue is the type of trouble. And it's maybe beautifully uneasy.“

starring Bill Pullman, Patricia Arquette, Balthazar Getty, Robert Loggia, Robert Blake, Natasha Gregson Wagner, Gary Busey, Michael Masse, Henry Rollins

directed by David Lynch, written by David Lynch & Barry Gifford, edited by Mary Sweeney, cinematography Peter Deming, music by Angelo Badalamenti, sound design David Lynch, production design/ costumes design Patricia Norris

Twin Peaks - Fire Walk With Me 1992

„At the end of the series, I felt kind of sad. I couldnít get myself to leave the world of Twin Peaks. I was in love with the character of Laura Palmer and her contradictions, radiant on the surface, dying inside. I wanted to see her live, move and talk.“
„Most films are like a waltz, four four time kind of simple, in my mind, Iím not putting them down. So this is like a jazz version of the story. And itís Laura Palmerís last week of life and itís got some abstract areas in it.“

starring Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Kyle MacLachlan, Chris Isaak, Kiefer Sutherland, David Lynch, David Bowie, Harry Dean Stanton, Moira Kelly, Dana Ashbrook

directed by David Lynch, written by David Lynch & Robert Engels, edited by Mary Sweeney, cinematography Ron Garcia, music by Angelo Badalamenti, sound design David Lynch, production design/ costumes design Patricia Norris
