David Lynch Doesn’t Agree with Your Interpretation of ‘Eraserhead’

What a year it’s been for David Lynch. Even if he doesn’t have a new film arriving anytime soon — and even if that is, to borrow his wording, such a sadness — there have been a healthy dose of releases in 2014: the excellent Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery set and, in particular, its […]

With cinematographer Roger Deakins filling his schedule with new films from Denis Villeneuve and the Coens, it means there’s no time for him to reteam with Sam Mendes for their Skyfall follow-up.
