David Lynch on Product Placement

David Lynch is still relevant as a film maker. I would dare say he may be one of the last true independent film makers. If you need further proof, just look to the fact that despite warnings he made a three hour film last year called "Inland Empire" that had this plot description, "An actress's perception of reality becomes increasingly distorted as she finds herself falling for her co-star in a remake of an unfinished Polish production that was supposedly cursed." In order to make sure audiences had a firm grasp on the film, he drove the print personally from city to city and screened it himself. So, in a world where independent film makers go from making Sun Dance films to Comic Book Mega Movies in a five minute flip, Lynch still seems committed to the art of it all. If you need proof, just watch the video below. In it he describes in detail his feelings on Corporate Product Placement in the world of Feature Films.
