** A woman named Lotje Sodderland wrote him a letter about how she suffered brain damage during a stroke, and found that his films bore an uncanny resemblance to the way her mind worked now. In a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, Lynch responded by producing a documentary about her, titled ''My Beautiful Broken Brain''.

* ActingInTheDark: He feels it is important not to let the cast know the whole story, or even the ending of the film.



* [[PlayingAgainstType Directing Against Type]]: ''The Straight Story'' is a sweet, gentle movie, based on a true story, about an elderly man who travels several miles on his lawnmower to visit his estranged brother. It actually does bear a lot of the subtler trademarks of Lynch's direction, though.



* ProductionPosse and SpiritualSuccessor: Many of his films share themes, crew, actors and [[spoiler:occasionally even characters]]. WordOfGod is that ''Lost Highway'' and ''Twin Peaks'' are in the same universe, which raises a few questions about the roles of Jack Nance and David Bowie.



* UncannyValley: Some of his commercials, and Michael J. Anderson's role in ''Mulholland Drive''.

* DadaAd: He directed a couple of commercials. They are [[TheWalrusWasPaul just as]] [[MindScrew bizarre]] as you might expect from the man.
** Heck, just take a look at ''any'' of his UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 commercials.
** Or the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdlf1DzX0iQ&feature=related teaser ad]] he made for Music/MichaelJackson's ''Dangerous'', which later appeared on the compilation of music videos for that album.
** The weirdness of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vor65mNB8Uk this cigarette ad]] is compounded by the fact that it is backwards. Apparently.

'''David Keith Lynch''' (born 1946) is a widely acclaimed and influential director of film and television. Like Creator/AlfredHitchcock and Creator/AkiraKurosawa, he was originally trained as a painter. Motivated by a desire to see his paintings in motion, he went into filmmaking in the late 1960s. His short "[[{{Squick}} Six Men Getting Sick]]" won a cash prize. From this point forward, he would be a professional filmmaker.

If you watch one of his works, expect some type of severe head trauma to play a role. Also, pay close attention to use of white noise and ambient sounds.
