David Lynch: The Art Life Rated 15

David Lynch: The Art Life

Dir. Rick Barnes, Olivia Neergaard-Holm, Jon Nguyen. USA, 2016. 1h 28m. Starring David Lynch.

Narrated by the man himself, this fascinating documentary traces David Lynch’s early career as he moved from visual art into experimental film. The film infuses his art, music and films in typically dreamlike fashion.

’What is so extraordinary about this film is that it doesn't show Lynch as the cinephile or the movie brat or even someone with any great interest in art history.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

’Not a frame of his post-Eraserhead work appears. Instead, Lynch himself is on screen a lot - daubing, smoking, recollecting.’ ★★★★ Tim Robey, The Telegraph
