No, David Lynch Did Not Quit Cinema For Good, He Assures Us

“My remarks have been misrepresented,” David Lynch tells Le Soir at Cannes.

Early this month, The Sydney Morning Herald published a story titled David Lynch on the return of Twin Peaks and why he will never make another film, in which the director seems to admit he closed the curtain on cinema.

“Things changed a lot,” Lynch says. “So many films were not doing well at the box office even though they might have been great films and the things that were doing well at the box office weren’t the things that I would want to do.”

He is uncertain at first, but then appears to make up his mind: he has indeed made his last feature film. That’s a yes? “Yes it is,” he says.

Many fans wept as the news spread like wildfire.

Today, while attending the 70th Cannes Film Festival for the French premiere of the new Twin Peaks, the director was asked about the statement and cleared up the misunderstanding. “My remarks have been misrepresented,” he tells Le Soir. “I did not say I quit cinema. Simply that nobody knows what the future holds.”

Remember when he said Twin Peaks was as dead as a doornail? Never say never.

David Lynch’s upcoming memoir, Life & Work, deals with the plethora of misinterpretations and rumors about him, or, in his own words, “a lot of bullshit out there.”
