CopyrightAsymmetrical Productions, Lynch's company, whose offices are near Lynch's house in the Hollywood Hills and whose logo, designed by Lynch, is a very cool graphic that looks like this: Lost Highway is set in Los Angeles and the desertish terrain immediately inland from it.
Principal shooting goes from December '95 through February ' Lynch normally runs Rotary essay closed set, with redundant security arrangements and an almost Masonic air of secrecy around his movies' productions, but I am allowed onto the Lost Highway set on January I This is not because of anything having to do with me or with the fact that I'm a fanatical Lynch fan from way back, though I did make my proLynch fanaticism known when the Asymmetrical people were trying to decide whether to let a writer onto the set.
The fact is I was let onto Lost Highways set mostly because there's rather a lot at stake for Lynch and Asymmetrical on this movie and they probably feel like they can't afford to indulge their allergy to PR and the Media Machine quite the way they have in the past.
I rarely got closer than five feet away from him and never talked to him. You should probably know this up front.
One of the minor reasons Asymmetrical Productions let me onto the set is that I don't even pretend to be a journalist and have no idea how to interview somebody, which turned out perversely to be an advantage, because Lynch emphatically didn't want to be interviewed, because when he's actually shooting a movie he's incredibly busy and preoccupied and immersed and has very little attention or brain space available for anything other than the movie.

He is standing in the bristly underbrush off the dirt road between the base camp's trailers and the set, peeing on a stunted pine. David Lynch, a prodigious coffee drinker, apparently pees hard and often, and neither he nor the production can afford the time it'd take to run down the base camp's long line of trailers to the trailer where the bathrooms are every time he needs to pee.
So my first and generally representative sight of Lynch is from the back, and understandably from a distance. Lost Highway's cast and crew pretty much ignore Lynch's urinating in public, though I never did see anybody else relieving themselves on the set again, Lynch really was exponentially busier than everybody else.
What movie people on location sets call the trailer that houses the bathrooms: Lynch and radical mastectomy Had for a few years a comic strip, The Angriest Dog in the World, that appeared in a handful of weekly papers, and of which Matt Greening and Bill Griffith were reportedly big fans.
