Is it Take My Ball and Go Home month or something.

First Sodebergh, then Lucas and Spielberg and how Lynch.

People like Iron Man.

Boo ****ing hoo.

Well, it's not surprising, but it is too bad. Lynch is my favorite director ever.

octagon, I'm not really sure what you were saying there, but it is also too bad that Soderbergh is leaving the game.

Crystal clear. I was just really thrown off by your first post. Suggesting that Inland Empire is not a real film is quite the put down in my eyes. Just one of those trigger words for me...it gets me all Ted Striker

I'm basically rolling my eyes at established filmmakers whinging (though to be fair Lynch didn't come off as cranky or as whiney as the other three) because they can't just walk into a meeting and walk out with checks for tens of millions of dollars.

Every time I read one of these articles I flash to an SCTV bit. Martin Short was playing Jerry Lewis and was (among other things) *****ing about how the twelve year old running the studio that day didn't get a Jerry Lewis.

Lynch and Soderberg I can understand because they probably aren't that rich (maybe worth 10-20 million), but with Spielberg and Lucas you've just got to roll your eyes. I'm guessing they could each put out a Lincoln and Red Tails budgeted film every year until they die using their own money, and not take much of a financial hit at all.

This is rather disappointing news. He's a great director, specifically due to his uniqueness.

I think he was mine too. After I saw Mulholland Drive a year or two ago, my views on films changed for the better.

We'll always have Dune.

(Yeah, I know. It's my favorite David Lynch film even after all these years. What can I say?)

"My ideas are not what you'd call commercial, and money really drives the boat these days."

I know that I may get killed in here for saying this, but that may be one of the most ignorant and dumbest lines of thinking that I have seen in some time. I just went onto imdb and box office mojo, and of the movies that I looked up, only one of his movies made money (and it barely did at that). If he wants to make movies for the artistic integrity, then he should agree with the studios to only get paid once the movie is profitable or pay for the budget out of his own pocket. No one goes into business to intentionally lose money, so I don't get his "corporate greed" line of thinking (towards the studios). End of rant.

After saying that, the only movie of his that I enjoyed was The Elephant Man.
