Lynch Goes from Twin Peaks to World Peace
OK, everybody. Let’s wipe off those interpretive lenses again. Perhaps we can make something out of David Lynch’s movies now. He’s the new international face and prime fundraiser for Transcendental Meditation (of Beatles fame). “Lynch, a man who has defined weirdness through his films, is not joking. He has been practising TM since 1973, after being introduced to it by his sister. Lynch said the experience changed his life. ‘I had an anger in me before I started meditating, and I took it out on my first wife. But two weeks after meditating, that anger had left. Since then each day has been better than the day before.’” (Paul Harris, The Guardian, 26 October 2003) But don’t miss the last quote in the article.
