 20 Greatest Horror Directors 
DAVID LYNCH
What’s David Lynch’s secret? Mystery. “To me, mystery is like a magnet,” he says. “Whenever there is something that’s unknown, it has a pull to it. When you see a part, it’s even stronger than the whole.”             It’s this affinity for the unknowable that gives his films their uncanny power – whether it’s demonic forces, splintering identities or the freaky shit people get up to behind closed doors.       No wonder curtains and corridors are two of his big motifs, alongside strobing lights, crushed innocence, nightmare logic and ghastly head wounds.    His painter’s eye is matched by the most dread-sensitive ear in the business; even The Straight Story, the only one of his movies that doesn’t disturb on some level, opens with an ominous thud.   Must See: Eraserhead (1977), Blue Velvet (1986), Twin Peaks (TV, 1990-91), Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992), Lost Highway (1997), Mulholland Dr. (2011)

CHRISTIAN BALE ON THE DARK KNIGHT
So what new physical challenges did you face for The Dark Knight? 
We’ve gone a bit further with Keysi, the martial art we learned for the first one.
I’m actually learning how to do it more realistically than ever before, though it’s such an extremely violent way of fighting; there are literally moves where you tear someone’s cheek away from their face, or rip their nose off – every part of you becomes a weapon. It’s formidable.
Batman doesn’t kill, so we can’t have him doing that: we modify it.
