David Lynch not only gave us Twin Peaks and several of the best films in the last 20 years. He also knows where to catch the big ones.

Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They’re huge and abstract. And they’re very beautiful.
