Janus Films has debuted a new trailer for the documentary titled David Lynch: The Art Life, a look at the life and work of American director David Lynch. Lynch is beloved by critics & cinephiles for his films like Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr. and Inland Empire.

The film focuses mostly on his early years and many of the various inspirations and moments of his life that made him into the artist he is today. This looks fascinating and totally weird, which is just about right to tell the story of David Lynch. Check out the new footage below.
