    It makes debatecucks seethe to no end
    Logical fallacies were invented by them to make themselves feel superior by going "gotcha" when you don't follow arbitrary rules such as "burden of proof" or "ad hominem"
    If anyone asks you to explain your reasoning, just answer "No". What are they going to do? Call the police?

        Thats by design. Make your films surreal and confusing, then refuse to elaborate on meaning, then your fans can gloat about how they're the few that are intelligent enough to "get it"

        surrealism and dreams are anti-logic
        so it makes no sense to apply logic to his films

          You think something that's surreal is irrelevant to the tone or narrative of a work? If it's not that that hardly mean it's "illogical"

      But it's not a debate, it's his own personal opinion on his career. He wants you to form your own opinions regarding his movies. If he doesn't want to elaborate on it, why should he?

      It's moronic in this case. If the point of his films is to experience it and form an interpretation, then it shouldn't matter if he offers his because everyone's is valid. Him trying to not "influence" others with his intent either means
      a.)he does't actually have one and is making shit up as he goes along
      b.)the films aren't as surreal and open as they appear and do have an objective and correct interpretation

      >a.)he does't actually have one and is making shit up as he goes along
      Highly unlikely at this point. Maybe you could do that for one movie, but not a career.
      >b.)the films aren't as surreal and open as they appear and do have an objective and correct interpretation
      He would tell you that while he has his own interpretation, he believes his work do NOT have an "objective" interpretation. He's the one who put it together, you saying you won't be influenced by his opinion is wrong. You'd say it holds more weight than the average person's, he knows this, so he doesn't share it.
      If his ideas really do come largely from meditation, he would likely tell you the images/sensations he experiences during it are only for him and cannot be replicated by film, but that he is trying to relay something similar to you to see what YOU get out of it. Telling you what he got out of, what is ultimately, a different experience is pointless.

      ideally yes, but as soon as he offers his interpretation it's going to create a split in the audience. One side will say there is now a "correct" interpretation and say anyone with a different interpretation doesn't have media literacy.

    Lynch is 100% right about this. The symbols and themes in his films are wrested from the depths and have a logic all their own, a logic which Lynch himself wouldn't be able to reduce to the coarse tools known as words. And if he did provide an explanation we would take the explanation and dismiss the symbol. The symbol would lose its power, we would no longer see it, because we now know what it "means".

      Yes and no. A lot of the dreamlike, confusing nature of Mulholland Drive stems from its origins as a planned mystery box television series rather than a feature film.

    because while lynch is a shy narcissist, most directors and writers are overt narcissists who love to hear themselves talk and explain how intelligent they are. As a shy narcissist, lynch lets the mystique of his work build up a cult-like interest in him which is more appealing to someone with social anxiety

    It's the best possible response. If you elaborate on a movie you're basically conceding that you failed to communicate what you've meant communicate with the movie in the movie.

      The fact that people constantly debate the meanings and feel the need to ask him directly pretty much shows that nothing was communicated effectively.

      He has said that film is its own language and that to translate something back into what he "intended" basically defeats the purpose of the entire thing.
      I think Lynch speaks in "feelings", not direct "messages".

    I don't want to elaborate on his non-elaborations, but I would like to remind everyone that every great artist understands retaining ambiguity.
    Kubrick for example also understood this, I don't believe he talked his work to death.

      He literally explained the ending of 2001 to a journalist who asked him about it.
