David Lynch Takes The Citizen Kane Approach

by MADDY MADISON · March 26, 2008


    A cold, dark city where no one, not even the mother of small, popsicle-loving children, care about the approaching armageddon of rat infestation.  The newest Republican attack ad? No, it's a public service announcement a la David Lynch.  Half film noir, one quarter scare tactic reel, and one quarter twisted New York love letter, Lynch's PSA has been making the rounds, though no word yet on whether our streets are cleaner as a result of the Citizen Kane approach to anti-littering.  Lynch, for the uninitiated, is the mastermind behind Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive and is basically a full time brilliant eccentric.  If the PSA strikes you as odd, keep in mind this is a man who composes daily video forecasts by looking out his window and saying things like, "I see a plane."  You know, cause the weather channel just lacks that certain cinematic quality.
