David Lynch vs. Flix on yer Phone

Lynch is a master of experimental narrative which is why I was slightly surprised he'd be against someone experiencing his work in an alternative environment like on a mobile phone, but, artistically I can completely understand his gripe with someone experiencing his work intended for a big screen on such a tiny device. To date, I've never watched a flick on a phone and I couldn't imagine having that much time to stare at a phone outside of a long plane ride. I definitely want the new iPhone when it comes out - so - maybe I'll give it a try.. but I certainly won't be watching Blue Velvet, out of respect to Mr. Lynch --JG
