David F***ing Lynch
"Eraserhead is my most spiritual movie. No one understands when I say that, but it is.
"Eraserhead was growing in a certain way, and I didn't know what it meant. I was looking for a key to unlock what these sequences were saying. Of course, I understood some of it; but I didn't know the thing that just pulled it all together. And it was a struggle. So I got out my Bible and started reading. And one day, I read a sentence. And I closed the Bible, because that was it; that was it. And then I saw the thing as a whole. And it fulfilled this vision for me, 100 percent.
"I don't think I'll ever say what that sentence was."
(David Lynch, Catching the Big Fish, p. 33.)
