David Lynch has such a unique way of directing. His own Mubi quotte says a lot: “I don't think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you're dead”. It's really noticeable when you see him on set, that his abstractions are anything but gratuitous. The fact of chosing a nonlinear open ended narrative doesn't mean that we can circumscribe his style to a fourtuitous "nonsense".
