DAVID LYNCH: DUNE, BLM, AND POST-LOCKDOWN LIFE

If there's one good thing that's coming out of quarantine, it's David Lynch's YouTube channel reboot. Besides his daily weather reports, we saw the launch of a new series, entitled "What is David Working on Today?" Where, among other things, the filmmaker teaches viewers how to build a microphone stand.

Lynch has now posted a 40-minute Q&A with long-time producer Sabrina S. Sutherland, where he responds to a series of social media fan questions. Yet when asked the film he's most proud of in his career, he said: "I 'm proud of all but Dune."

"I've loved working on different movies. It's not so much about pride, but the pleasure of doing it, the enjoyment of the work," he said. "I enjoyed working in all those various mediums. I'm feeling extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to enjoy those things and live."

Lynch, who spoke out in a weather report earlier this month in support of Black Lives Matter, also shared words of encouragement for the future: "I believe we are going through a transition as a whole. These so-called bleak times are needed to pass to get to a better place," he said.

"The old way gives way to a new way. More and more things have come to light, horror stories, and people have been living with that stuff for decades. More stuff's coming out. Those mistakes will begin to get righted. I think that we'll find really great times on the other side of this transition. An end to woe and negativity. I believe this, and hope for it."

Lynch had previously spoken out about Dune's upcoming Denis Villeneuve remake, saying he has "zero interest" in it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lynch said he wasn't going to watch the story of Villeneuve because for him he was "a heartache." "It has been a disappointment, and I have not had a final cut," he explained. "I have been telling this story a billion times. It is not the movie I wanted to make. I like some pieces of it very much - but for me, it was a complete failure.

Rumors say next year a potential collaboration between designer Rick Owens and David Lynch may take place. Stay tuned! We will keep you informed.
