Film Director and cult icon David Lynch has gone
public with concerns he has over the official government story
of the September 11 2001 terror attacks. Lynch has stated that
he is disturbed by unanswered questions concerning the Pentagon
attack, the collapse of the buildings in New York and the strange
ending of flight 93 in Pennsylvania.
Appearing on Dutch Television on VPRO's Wereldgasten,
on December 3rd, Lynch discussed and played clips from Dylan Avery's
groundbreaking 9/11 documentary Loose Change.
After playing a four minute segment from the documentary
Its not so much
what they say, it's the things that make you look at what you
thought you saw in a different light. And Those things for me,
that bother me, is the hole in the Pentagon being too small for
a plane, the lawn isn't messed up, and the government's not showing
the plane hitting when many cameras photographed it.
At the World
Trade Center, three buildings came down, like demolitions, and
two of them were hit by a plane, but the third one they said "do you want us to pull it?" and
they pulled it and it looked just like the other two.
Those things bother me.
In Pennsylvania, the plane that went down, there
was just a hole in the ground, there wasn't any wreckage,there
wasn't any skid marks, there wasn't any tear in the earth,
and no one has ever really found out about that.
So every place there's questions, coming from
this documentary. You don't have to believe everything in the
documentary to still have questions come up... and you look
back and you remember what you saw, and what you were told,
and now, you have questions.
It's just an event that has many questions and
When asked "What about suggestions the American government
was behind it?", Lynch answered:
"That's too big
for people to think about. it's too big. It's like something no
one wants to think about."
Lynch has directed well known cinematic classics
such as Eraserhead, Dune, The Elephant Man and Mulholland Drive.
He was also the creative force behind the Twin Peaks television
series in the 80s. His films are synonymous with the questioning
of the nature of reality and thinking outside the box. Often
employing visually rich and surrealist stylistic elements,
Lynch's works have become instantly recognizable to audiences
worldwide and cemented his status as an underground hero for
decision to make public his views is another encouraging
sign that 9/11 truth and visualizations such as Loose Change
are crossing the boundary between "the alternative" and
the mainstream, permeating the collective consciousness
of accessible culture, just as Lynch's work has done
over the past four decades.
Lynch follows in the footsteps of other identifiable
cultural figures who have spoken out on 9/11, such as Richard
Linklater, Jesse Ventura, Matthew Bellemy, Ed Asner and Charlie
