Re: Is David Lynch the most pretentious director?
He's just obsessed with dreams like Salvador Dali was.
I wouldn't label him "pretentious", because he's just a cinematic artist indulging in his own tastes. Maybe a bit too indulgent, but I don't think he's doing it for the purpose to seem "enlightened" or "more intelligent". Some of his fans can be labeled pretentious but not Lynch himself.
