The legendarily strange auteur returns, possibly to sell glowing blue handbags.

David Lynch wrote and directed Lady Blue Shanghai, a 16-minute short film with Dior branding that suggests someone here might want to sell a purse, or something. From Eraserhead to Blue Velvet to Clear Blue Easy home pregnancy tests, Lynch’s work is unmistakable. The glowing bag recalls the briefcases in Pulp Fiction and Kiss Me, Deadly, while the creepy, hushed interiors seem like they’re just down the long, dark hall from those in Lost Highway. With the odd angles, red curtains and flashing lights, it would be no surprise if a backwards-talking little person danced into the film to whisper the identity of Laura Palmer’s killer.
