Playing Lynch is an online art exhibit celebrating the work of filmmaker David Lynch. In it, actor John Malkovich stars in seven vignettes as some of Lynch’s most iconic characters, and even the enigmatic director himself. Sandro Miller directs the pieces that are presented by Squarespace and available to view on PlayingLynch.com.
“If you want to do something really, really, really good, if you want to do something different, something that’s going to stick in people’s heads, you can’t play in the shallow water,” says Miller in the behind-the-scenes video found below. “When you pay homage to a great, great director like David, I mean you really want to nail it for David. You want David to be really proud of how someone represented his work.”
