What took 'Repo Chick' so long to end up on home video?
David Lynch's people attempted to prevent the screening of the film at Venice, they threatened an injunction against the film at Venice. Universal threatened the production with a cease and desist letter to attempt to prevent the production from taking place. That is so charming, so delightful a part of filmmaker's existence.
I wasn't familiar with this conflict with David Lynch-
No, [I was] entirely puzzled by the Lynch thing too, because in theory David Lynch has a sales company which is supposed to be selling the film abroad, but all they [had] done so far is threaten legal action. They embarked on legal action against me to prevent me from screening the film. Why David Lynch would be involved in the process like that, which only benefits Universal, I really don't know. I don't know what's up with David Lynch, why that would be happening. It's totally mysterious to me. It's totally mysterious. But it really does make me feel like in the end, you just can't beat the studios. I mean the studios are so powerful, and since they also control distribution, even if you managed to beat them in the sense that if you get the film made, will anybody ever see it? I used to think, yeah, yeah, they will see it, it's worth doing anyway. You know, but after that, I'm beaten. I can't beat the studios.
...What in the fucking fuck was that? It looked like what happens when severely mentally disturbed six year old gets her hands on mommy's camera and films her barbies shooting each other.

That's what my dreams look like after I eat 4-alarm chili.
