* 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]]: ''Film/TheStraightStory'' 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.

* OldShame: Lynch prefers not to talk about ''Dune'' in interviews.

* HireTheCritic: Novelist Barry Gifford wrote a piece that was highly critical of Lynch's attempt at FilmNoir atmosphere in ''BlueVelvet''. Lynch went on to adapt one of Gifford's books as ''WildAtHeart'' and cowrote the screenplay for ''LostHighway'' with him.
