A revealing look at the life and work of David Lynch, one of the most enigmatic and influential filmmakers of our time

Every frame of David Lynchand#39;s work, from the and#39;70s midnight movie Eraserhead to the groundbreaking TV series Twin Peaks, to the digital-video DIY feat Inland Empire, bears his unmistakable imprint.and#160;But the paradox of the Lynchian is that itand#39;s easy to recognize and hard to define.and#160;Lynch is a master of the inscrutable gesture, the opaque symbol. His career evades the usual categories:and#160;pop culture icon and subject of academic study, cult figure and industry outsider.and#160;Heand#39;s a Renaissanceand#160;manandmdash;musician, painter, photographer, carpenter, entrepreneurandmdash;and a vocal proponent or transcendental meditation.

Dennis Lim, the newly minted director of Cinematheque programming at Lincoln Center, is a skilled cinephile wary of over-interpretation. David Lynch preserves the strangeness of the Lynchand#39;s universe and offers a personal meditation on the most distinctive filmmaker in modern American culture. It leaves what Lynch likes to call andquot;room to dream,andquot;and#160;honoring the allure of the unknown and the unknowable.

Synopsis:

David Lynch's distinguished career includes such films as "The Elephant Man", "Blue Velvet", "Wild at Heart"; "Last Highway"; and the seminal television series "Twin Peaks". Here, Lynch speaks openly about the full breadth of his creative work.

Synopsis:

David Lynch erupted on to the cinema landscape with "Eraserhead, establishing himself as one of the most original, imaginative and truly personal directors at work in contemporary cinema. He is a surrealist in the tradition of the great Spanish filmmaker, Luis Bunuel.
Over the course of a career that includes films such as "Blue Velvet, "Wild Heart, "Lost Highway, and the TV series "Twin Peaks, he has remained true to a vision of the innocent lost in darkness and confusion.
In this edition, Lynch speaks openly not only about his movies, but also about the full range of his many activities: a life-long commitment to painting; his continuing work in photography; his extensive work in television; and the musical collaborations with Julee Cruise and Angelo Badalamenti.

Synopsis:

David Lynch erupted onto the cinema landscape in 1977 with Eraserhead, establishing himself as one of the most original and imaginative directors at work in contemporary cinema. Over the course of his career, he has remained true to a vision of the innocent lost in darkness and confusion, balancing hallucination and surrealism with a sense of Americana that is as pure and simple as his compelling storylines. In this volume, Lynch speaks openly about his films as well as about his lifelong commitment to painting, his work in photography, his television projects, and his musical collaborations with Angelo Badalamenti.
