lol. jk. My dude has never been to the beach. Dave’s actual Top 5 list (according to Far Out magazine) is, of course, a throughly Lynchian quintet of unheimlich surrealism, existentialist historical fiction, disturbing found photography, hundred-year-old art criticism, and auteur biography.

Each of the below titles can now be found on the shelves of Silencio, Lynch’s Parisian private venue club, opened by the director a few years back and “dedicated to creative communities.” Silencio—which I didn’t know existed until until about an hour ago but am now obsessed with—also boasts a curated selection of Lynch’s favorite music, films, furniture, and wine, so if anyone wants to get weird in Paris this weekend, hit me up.
