Here’s an Onion A.V. Club interview I did with David Lynch in his suite at the Hotel On Rivington on the Lower East Side. We sat and drank cappuccino (not, as I’d hoped per Twin Peaks fan fantasy, coffee “black as midnight on a moonless night”). I gave him a Buddha’s hand, a weird fruit I only recently learned of that is basically a lemon with no meat and in the shape of something tentacle-y from space or deep within the sea. He put it in a bowl on the table between us filled with strange gourds. He was warm and receptive when not receptive at all. His new movie Inland Empire is better than you might have heard or read. It's about identity drift and finger-snapping and the fact that the bus from Hollywood to Pomona costs $3.
