DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE

SHOWTIMES / BUY TICKETS
First show: April 28

Sketching and smoking in his home studio, David Lynch – a lifelong artist whose fixation on the concept of moving, audible paintings begat arguable cinematic masterstrokes like Eraserhead and Mulholland Drive – credits not his “normal” childhood, but the mysterious sensations and surreal encounters within it, as coloring a lifetime of the work we know well: one that explores, challenges, subverts (and yet, celebrates), the inherent darkness within American normalcy. As textural and synesthetic as a Lynch film itself, David Lynch: The Art Life is the rare artist’s biography that lets the subject – and his eerie and thrilling visual art – speak for itself.

Directed by Jon Nguyen • United States/Denmark • 2016 • 93 minutes • Color • DCP.

Preceded by Scissors (2007)

Shown at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007, these might just be two of the scariest and most uncomfortable minutes Lynch has ever created. In what might just be a self-critique of watching his own works or a larger statement on watching modern movies in a theater setting, Lynch remains ambitious while remaining precise in execution.
