Documentary: David Lynch: The Art Life

Robin Askew, June 22, 2017

The return of Twin Peaks hype makes this an opportune moment for the release of Lynch One director Jon Nguyen‘s Kickstarter-funded documentary about the septuagenarian king of US indie arthouse weirdness.

Based on 20 interviews with the man himself and suitably Lynchian in tone, this respectful and intimate film is certain to delight enthusiasts, though the casual viewer should perhaps be warned that it centres on the director’s formative influences and, as the title suggests, is more about his painting than his filmmaking, concluding with the five years he spent in a stable making his debut, Eraserhead.
