Tracking down traces at such filming locations as Snoqualmie, Washington - where the hit television series "Twin Peaks" (1990) was shot - and London, England, scene of The Elephant Man (1980). Kaleta also conducted revealing interviews, including a conversation with a Philadelphia art school connection and the director of the London Hospital Museum, for insights into the strange mind and perception of the filmmaker. Probing astutely into the techniques that make Lynch's.
Fantasy good-and-evil world so riveting - and the director a natural heir to Hitchcock, Kaleta examines Lynch's deadpan vision of the grotesque and the unseemly - juxtaposed with the innocent and the lyrical - and looks at his creation of an intensely felt and amoral universe of overwhelming instinctual forces. This study - the first full look at David Lynch - will provide much food for thought for anyone who takes an interest in contemporary film.
