The 71-year-old directing legend appears to have just announced his retirement from making movies, although it's hard to tell, as his intended meaning is often misplaced in the lumpy word salad of his discourse.

Director David Lynch has hinted that he may never make a film again.

The 71-year-old filmmaker says Hollywood has changed a lot in the last few years and he cannot comprehend how average films do well at the box office, reported The Sydney Morning Herald.

“Things changed a lot. So many films were not doing well at the box office even though they might have been great films and the things that were doing well at the box office weren’t the things that I would want to do,” Lynch said.

When asked whether his most recent big-screen outing, 2006’s Inland Empire, will be his final film, the director replied, “Yes, it is”.

The director will, however, come back with the revival of his popular TV show, Twin Peaks, later this month for a third season, 16 years after the series ended.

Lynch is best known for his films The Elephant Man, Lost Highway, The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive.
