David Lynch : The Art Life 15

David Lynch : The Art Life


This exquisitely textured and reflective documentary focuses on David Lynch - one of our most celebrated and unpredictable filmmakers - as a visual artist.

Speaking into a vintage microphone from his painting studio in the hills above Hollywood, Lynch takes us on an intimate journey through his youth, covering his idyllic childhood in small-town America, his awkward teens and his time spent living the 'art life' in the dark streets of Philadelphia, recounting his anxieties and fears and the personal experiences that inspired both his visual and cinematic art.

Combining home movies, moody artworks and footage of Lynch painting and sculpting alongside his musings, this is an immersive and compelling experience (supported by, of course, a strange, dark and beautiful soundtrack).
