I shall here focus in particular on the theme of voyeurism, which also implicates us as spectators, and on the symbolic significance of the cut-off ear, the film’s iconic and emblematic MacGuffin. Lynch has refused to explain what his art means and apparently walked out of his first and only session with a psychiatrist because he feared the process could disrupt his creativity.
