Lynch on Lynch Paperback – March 24, 2005
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
In Lynch on Lynch, a 250-page interview book, editor Chris Rodley does a superb job of getting Lynch to talk at length about the high and low points of his life and career. Their conversation covers his early work as a painter through the making of his major films of the 1980s, the fiasco of Dune ("It is what it is."), and the recent and very obscure Lost Highway ("I just *loved* this title.").
Lynch is particularly interesting when he talks about the creative process: "I don't want to give the impression that I sit around thinking up horrible things. I get all kinds of different ideas and feelings. If I'm lucky, they start organizing themselves into a story--then maybe some ideas come along that are too eerie, too violent, or too funny, and they don't fit that story. So you write them down and save them for two or three projects down the road. There's nowhere you can't go in a film--if you think of it, you can go there." Lynch on Lynch is a treat for Lynch fans of all shapes, sizes, and fetishes. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

(NOTE: Make sure that if you pick this up, you get the edition that has been revised and updated to include "Mulholland Drive")
Considering the book in its entirety, it is a very comprehensive work, covering everything from the aforementioned material to Lynch's childhood, his early work in painting and the first experimental films he directed. This book is still THE one to get for fans of David Lynch. Reading it one comes away with the sense of having actually met and talked with the man himself -- none of the other books on Lynch really capture this feeling.
Those who already own the old version of the book may want to think twice about purchasing the revised edition. The sections added are not all that lengthy and much of the material has already been discussed elsewhere.
I respect the opinion of the previous reviewer (AW), who has written a lot of quality reviews for many LSAT books, but I disagree that with the opinion that this book is overly simplistic. For example, the book advises you to ask yourself for flaw questions, "Is this a flaw in the argument?" While this sounds obvious, this advice is followed by a discussion of why answer choices for flaw questions can be wrong, and it turns out that there are only two kinds of wrong answer choices for flaw questions: choices that don't describe real flaws, and choices that don't accurately describe the argument. Thus, this simple question reminds you to check whether each choice really describes a flaw and really describes the argument. Only the correct choice will do both. So, yes, this approach is simple, but it gets you to the right answer, so why make things more complicated? I like the simplicity. Of course, the book also provides a lot more advice about how to spot common flaws as well.
The point about conditional reasoning is analogous. The LRB has tons of material regarding this topic, and while it is all true, about half of it is beyond the scope of any question that would appear on the LSAT more than once a decade. I started advising my students to skip large portions of this book when they came to me utterly confused. If you can handle All, Most, and Some, including combining these concepts, you're golden for the LSAT.Read more ›
