“Compellingly reveals new elements of fear and rootlessness to be lurking underneath Lynch’s confidence.” – Slant Magazine
“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
“A fond portrait of how one man nurtured his artistic temperament and risked being misunderstood.” – The New York Times
David Lynch: The Art Life infuses Lynch’s own art, music and early films, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world, giving audiences a better understanding of the man and the artist. As Lynch states “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 a private view from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as Lynch retells personal stories from his past that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus, only to fade again into the past, leaving an indelible mark on Lynch, the artist.
Dir. Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes, and Olivia Neergaard-Holm. 93 min.
