This is stupid. The iPhone is meant to entertain people why they`re on a trip, waiting for someone while they`re shopping, or in a place with no TV`s. Another thing is that the quality of videos on the iPhone are amazing and it doesn`t matter what size it is I can still appreciate the video. Yes, I would rather watch it on a big a** plasma screen TV but since I can`t take that with me on the occasional trip I take every now and then I have the iPhone.

That Maddox page is f-ing hilarious.

Whether the iPhone sucks or is great, though, David Lynch is a tool. Sorry, he is.

Im surprised that, considering that at least half of the people who commented on this page were confident the iphone `sucks`, none of you has put any half assed reasoning behind your ignorant, narrow-minded bashing of it. I assume most of you are trying to jump on your little non-conformist boat by taking a firm position against a popular device that most normal people would very much like to own. And then there was the guy who said he hated people who owned the iphone. Wow. Making premeditated assumptions about the personality of people who own a certain brand of phone before you even meet or know them is about as ignorant as it gets. As for the video, there is no comedic value to this clip. "A guy who says video on iphone sucks". Thats about it. So before you tools go around bashing people again because of the phone they like, try to realize that you are refusing to get to know a guy because he bought a certain something at some point in his life. Get a life...

Trailer for INLAND EMPIRE (the Italian version, because it`s the best) (and, yes, that`s David Lynch singing!):

My 2 cents:
The man is an extremely talented director and healer. I`d be disappointed if he hadn`t gotten around to making this argument....even if he is not entirely able to support it on his own because of funding issues for his films, particularly the last one.

His last film is best seen on a huge cinema screen. (Too bad the fact that it has no American distributor means that people in most towns won`t be able to see it the way it was meant to be seen. I`m lucky or spoiled or both because there were three different showings of INLAND EMPIRE on the big screen where I live...be that as it may....) even seeing it at home on DVD really diminishes the experience. I cannot imagine seeing IE on an iphone, or even trying to.

But I think iphones are ridiculous anyway. The bottom line is vastly depressing; but Lynch for decades has been taking the exact same bottom line and transforming it into something much better. Now, that`s not something that most people can do. End of ramble.

i wonldnt care one way or the other about the iphone if people who had them didnt act like god blessed them with a miracle in the form of a iphone and then proceed to spread the message of how great is it as if they are jesus. i personaly hate the phone. from the first time i saw one i hated it. after i played around with one that belonged to a friend of my sister i hated it even more. the touch screen mitigates any usefulness it might have had. i can open my phone with one hand and call anyone im in regular contact with without looking in a matter of seconds. i dont need a bigger screen then the one i have to tell me what time it is it that i have a missed call. im not a 6 year old who cant go 3 minutes without something entertaining me cause i was raised by a tv. if you cant go a day without an mp3 player of a device to play videos in your pocket i feel sorry for you. its fine to embrace new technology but dont worship it.

I read an interview with F. Coppola saying the same thing... I think Lynch might mean, don`t say you saw `Film X` if you only saw it on an iPhone; as films need to be seen at least with the quality they were intended and deserve. Movies on the other hand...

Meh, I`m not a fan of iPhone, but I was expecting more of a rant.

I think paying $600 for a phone that`s more of a multi-tool than a phone with a touch screen that may or may not work is a bit exorbitant. Maybe once they get all the kinks out it will be an ok phone. But definitely not some god-like entity people want to make it out to be.

God bless David Lynch. Just because a new piece of tech exist does not make it the solution to all of our materialist needs. I remember when cell phones were phones, and then they because organizers, planners, calenders, and that was great. Then cell phones became deficient cameras, and that was ok. And then cell phones became music players, and that was awesome. Then cell phones became video players, and that`s ok for some formats. As someone else said, I think that they`re just fine for watching video clips like we have here on IAB, or maybe trailers or something of that nature, but for the same reason that the "UMD" failed, you can not experience cinema on a two inch screen. I think the overall point is one of quality. I`m sure that most of us has heard the term "Jack of all trades, master of none"?

Crap? WTF is wrong with the iphone!? I had the Nokia N95, couple of Sony Ericssons, and god knows how many Samsungs and LGs, and I still prefer the iphone. The camera pics, other than not having a flash, looks awsome compare to the others. I listen to music all the time with it, and people don`t watch fcking movies that jus came out, people watch favorite movies they saw before on it (maybe jus me). Surf the web at moderate speed, for emergency not to mention never being lost... David Lynch can go suck a d*ck jus the way he likes...

There is nothing wrong with watching films on an iPhone. I have an iPod Touch, and the video quality is awesome.
This video sucked. It wasn`t even funny.

At which point your self-esteem REALLY begins to suffer...

Yeah, while a video phone is fine for little clips like we have on IAB, there`s no way one could really enjoy watching a film on it. David Lynch is now my new hero.

Also: Berserk505 is absolutely right. While I don`t believe I`m "experiencing life" on the f**king Internet, I do spend too much time here. Getting out more sounds like a dang fine idea.

I have no problem with watching a film on a small screen.
I would never buy an iphone to do so though, if I want to watch a film I`ll do it on my tv.

why is it crap? Give me one reason, other than the one stated in the video, that the iphone is crap, and don`t give me crap about the 2g phone network, and the lack of a video camera. And jailbroken the iphone becomes one of the most versatile devices out there.... sorry about the rant, yes I am a fanboy... still,
give me one good reason that the iphone sucks..

If you interpret it as far as life goes, you can pretty much say the same thing. It`s a sadness if you think you can experience life on a "f-u-cking website" Maybe we should go out and play and live life to it`s fullest. I think I`ve spent too much time on the internet, how about you guys?

David Lynch is the only reason I watched this video.
I kind of expected more, knowing him.
But he`s right. Still, I don`t mind watching shows on a small screen. Movies I never would do.
