David Lynch has a new museum exhibition of paintings and short films coming up at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (a collaboration between him and their museum), and to preview it he made this trailer. It’s only a little over a minute long, but the fact that it’s directed by David Lynch is unmistakable. In fact, given that Lynch isn’t doing much directing beyond music videos and Dior ads, this might the closest thing we get to a new David Lynch movie in the 2010s.
For those wondering if the dialogue makes any more sense if you play it backward, we made the video below to find out. It’s still nonsense, but maybe it’s even more Lynchian?
