Watch: “David Lynch: The Treachery of Language”

“In Lynch’s own speech and in the speech patterns of his films, the impression is of language used less for meaning than for sound. To savor the thingness of words is to move away from their imprisoning nature.” Building off that observation, among others, from Dennis Lim’s fine work on David Lynch, video essayist Grace Lee examines the director’s ambivalent/averse relationship to language.
