David Lynch has returned to film briefly in a short that features all the straightforward symbolism dream logic you might expect.

Lynch created the short "The 3 R's" as a trailer for the Vienna Film Festival. Past years' trailers from the festival 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," according to the Huffington Post.

The short is just a minute long. It involves a beheaded rubber ducky, lingering questions about how many stones Pete has (no, not that Pete, I think) and earth that makes terrifying shrieking sounds when you hammer it. You get the gist.
