David Lynch: The Art Life


David Lynch: The Art Life looks at the art, music, and early films of the enigmatic creator of such offbeat classics as Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world and giving audiences a better understanding of the man and the artist.

“An essential creative autobiography for all Lynch fans.” – Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

As he says, “I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas, and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them. Even if they’re new ideas, the past colors them.” We’re invited in and given private views from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as he tells personal stories that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark. (Dir. by James Nguyen/Rick Barnes/Olivia Neergaard-Holm, 2016, USA/Denmark, 93 mins., Not Rated)
