David Lynch: The Art Life (2017)

By The Miniplex (other events)

10 Dates Through Jun 30, 2017
 
ABOUT ABOUT

This riveting profile of director David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, The Elephant Man, etc) explores how the formative experiences of his youth led him to become "one of American cinema’s finest oddities." Made with a remarkable amount of cooperation and openness from the usually enigmatic Lynch, the film includes archival footage and home movies, as well as interviews with Lynch as he paints in his studio. "A keen and rare insight into one of modern art's most fascinating people." - Film Experience. Not Rated, 93 minutes. 

"A fond portrait of how one man nurtured his artistic temperament and risked being misunderstood - sometimes by his own family." - New York Times

"Extravagantly surreal as the products of his imagination may be, they are deeply rooted in personal history and philosophy -- and it's this connection that Jon Nguyen's disarmingly off-kilter documentary... probes to rewarding effect." - Variety

"Feeds into that image of Lynch as the twisted by-product of middle America, an apple-cheeked Eagle Scout who somehow got drawn into the dark side." - Time Out

"Jon Nguyen's carefully-calibrated ode to Lynch is in itself Lynchian, an essential picture for the director's legion of fans." - Screen International
