David Lynch


"Sex was like a world so mysterious to me, I really couldn't believe there was this fantastic texture to life that I was getting to has all these different levels, from lust and fearful, violent sex to the real spiritual thing at the other end. Itīs the key to some fantastic mystery of life."

"Sex is a doorway to something so powerful and mystical, but movies usually depict it in a completely flat way. Being explicit doesn't tap into the mystical aspect of it either in fact, that usually kills it because people don't want to see sex so much as they want to experience the emotions that go along with it. These things are hard to convey in film because sex is such a mystery."
