Abstract:

From the Publisher: "From his early experimental projects to such films as Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, and INLAND EMPIRE, director David Lynch has created a body of work that continues to both intrigue and challenge viewers. In David Lynch: Beautiful Dark, Greg Olson explores the surreal intricacies of the director's unique visual and visceral style, not only in his full-length films but also in his early forays into painting and short films, as well as his television landmark, Twin Peaks. This in-depth exploration is the first full-length work to analyze the intimate symbiosis between Lynch's life experience and artistic expressions: from the small-town child to the teenage painter to the sixty-year-old Internet and digital media experimenter." To fully delineate the director's life and art, Olson received unprecedented participation from Lynch, his parents, siblings, old school friends, romantic partners, children, and decades of professional colleagues, as well as on-set access during the production of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. Throughout this study, Olson provides thorough analyses of the filmmaker's works as Lynch conceived, crafted, and completed them. Consequently, David Lynch: Beautiful Dark is the definitive study of one of the most influential and idiosyncratic directors of the past four decades.
