Somebody on the corner tells you they can teach you Transcendental Meditation, say, “Thanks, Jack, but I want the real thing!”

You’ll hear a vigorous David Lynch at his absolute best, generously talking in metaphors and some of that peachy keen ’50s vocabulary. At one point in the interview, he’s asked to describe the Mulholland Drive scene where Adam Kesher goes to meet the Cowboy. It’s probably the closest you’ll ever get to hearing an audio commentary from the director.
