David Lynch


"I think that pacing is extremely important, ... It shouldn't be boring, but fast pacing doesn't make interesting or good. It may jar you, but it's the feeling of the story that you want and it wants to be told in a certain way and pull you. And a certain slowness, not boring, but a certain slowness contrasted with something fast is very important. It's like music. If music was all just fast it would be a bummer. But symphonies and stuff are built on slow and fast and high and low, and it thrills your soul. And film is the same way."
