Retrospective | David Lynch

Jean Cocteau used to say that the cinema is where we go to dream together and no director in history has pulled this off quite like David Lynch. From his debut feature, Eraserhead, in 1977, to this year’s much-talked-about Twin Peaks re-union, Lynch has been mastering the art of rendering dreams – and nightmares on screen. His resume covers many genres – from TV soap opera (Twin Peaks) to road movies (Wild At Heart), Hollywood Noir (Mulhollland Drive) to detective romance (Blue Velvet). But in every case, the result is unmistakably Lynch, a striking mix of European avant-garde, folksy Americana and sheer inexplicable weirdness that is all the director’s own.

David Lynch: The Art Life

A rare glimpse into the mind of one of cinema’s most enigmatic visionaries, David Lynch: The Art Life offers an absorbing portrait of the artist, as well as an intimate encounter with the man himself. From his secluded home and painting studio in the Hollywood Hills, a candid Lynch conjures people and places from his past, from his boyhood to his experiences at art school to the beginnings of his filmmaking career—in stories that unfold like scenes from his movies. This remarkable documentary by Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes, and Olivia Neergaard-Holm travels back to Lynch’s early years as a painter and director drawn to the phantasmagoric, while also illuminating his enduring commitment to what he calls “the art life”: “You drink coffee, you smoke cigarettes, and you paint, and that’s it.”

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

Perhaps the most misunderstood film of Lynch’s career, ‘Fire walk With Me’ was conceived as a prequel to Lynch’s wildly popular, Twin Peaks. But viewers expecting more of the folksy charm of the TV series, with its heavenly pies and eccentric locals, were put off by the much darker tone of ‘Fire Walk With Me’. In the years since, the film has become a cult in its own right, with some sequences: including David Bowie’s extraordinary cameo as agent Philipp Jeffries, Leland and Laura’s confrontation with the one-armed man at a traffic intersection, and the ‘Pink Room’ being judged among Lynch’s best.
