It's a Strange world, Sandy / by Matthew Thompson

David Lynch turns sixty-eight today, and this PSA from 1991 is as fine a reason as any to celebrate his whirling brain. Shot with director of photography Frederick Elmes (of Blue Velvet fame), the one minute clip certainly paints a discomfiting portrait of litterers and garbage and New York with its rats, etc. Still, I can't help but notice a hint of glee from the man behind the camera as he leans into the writhing mess of the city.
