Coming to theatres this Friday, March 31:
DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE
Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes, and Olivia Neergaard-Holm
DOC NYC, London, Taipei Golden Horse, Rotterdam, SXSW, CPH:PIX, Hong Kong
The famed filmmaker reflects on his origins as a visual artist.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
While known for his distinctive, dreamlike films like BLUE VELVET and MULHOLLAND DRIVE, David Lynch began his creative explorations through art, originally training as a painter in Philadelphia. This candid profile grants viewers unparalleled, intimate access to the enigmatic auteur while he works in his painting studio. Early memories and reflections on his formative years through the triumph of ERASERHEAD reveal eerie connections to his body of work, making this portrait an indispensable look at an artist and his process.
