    Wednesday April 30th 2008

    David Lynch recently declared that people who watch a film on a telephone are “cheated,” and though his onetime muse Isabella Rossellini is creating a series of avant-garde shorts for mobile devices, she partly agrees. “It’s a disservice to watch a film like ‘Apocalypse Now’ on a small screen,” said Rossellini. “Are mobile phones only a recycling bin for content or for original content?
