Creator / David Lynch
David Lynch has a chicken.
Your argument is still valid, though.

"It makes me uncomfortable to talk about meanings and things. It's better not to know so much about what things mean. Because the meaning, it's a very personal thing, and the meaning for me is different than the meaning for somebody else."
David Lynch on most of his movies.

David Keith Lynch (born 1946) is a widely acclaimed and influential director of film and television. Like Alfred Hitchcock and Akira Kurosawa, 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 "Six Men Getting Sick" won a cash prize. From this point forward, he would be a professional filmmaker.

Obvious influences on his films are Federico Fellini, Billy Wilder, Ed Wood, The Wizard of Oz, Film Noir, 1950s pop music (and '50s culture in general), Tod Browning and Luis Buñuel. Frequent collaborators include Kyle MacLachlan, Laura Dern, Isabella Rossellini, Angelo Badalamenti, and the late Jack Nance.

He only conducts business deals at Bob's Big Boy restaurants.

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

His daughter, Jennifer Chambers Lynch, is also a film director. Her best-known work, and certainly most infamous, is 1993's Boxing Helena. And no, it doesn't involve prize fighting. (Though Julian Sands gulping raw egg smoothies might have spiced it up a bit.)
