David Lynch, 'The 3 Rs': Filmmaker Returns For Vienna Film Festival Trailer (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The last moving images we saw from David Lynch involved a "Red Button Man" and Interpol. We're getting a little closer to movie territory with Lynch's trailer for the Vienna Film Festival -- affectionately dubbed the Viennale -- which functions more as an abstract short film than a trailer.

Each year, the Viennale asks a respected filmmaker to create a trailer for their showcase, and from the looks of Lynch's, there are no ground rules here. The trailers have a history of being somewhat conceptual, but Lynch's, titled "The 3 Rs," is unsurprisingly the most disturbing in recent years. We find ourselves, as we often do with Lynch, in a world where nothing is as it should be -- numbers lose their meaning and sounds emerge from places they should not emerge from.

Past years' trailers have included Apichatpong Weerasethakul's ("Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives") "Empire," James Benning's "Fire and Rain" and Jean-Luc Godard "Une Catastrophe."
