David Lynch: The Art Life Trailer

"I can imagine a whole world that doesn't exist. I had tremendous freedom…" Another documentary about a filmmaker. The first trailer has arrived online for the film David Lynch: The Art Life, a documentary about the life and work of American director David Lynch. The doc is premiering at the Venice Film Fest this month, and will also play at the London Film Fest next. Lynch is beloved among critics for his films including Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr. and Inland Empire. This seems like an intriguing doc that looks at all of the various influences on Lynch that have inspired his work. This is a very eerie trailer, but it's probably perfect for fans of Lynch's films who want to learn more about his life. Dive in.

Here's the first trailer for Jon Nguyen's documentary David Lynch: The Art Life, from The Guardian:

David Lynch: The Art Life

David Lynch: The Art Life takes viewers on a journey with the iconic American director, back to his formative years in small-town Montana and the harder streets of Philadelphia. Dedicated to the director's youngest daughter, who was born in 2012 when work started on the documentary, Jon Nguyen's film is billed as a 'private memoir' which illuminates Lynch’s movies by looking back over his life. David Lynch: The Art Life is directed by newcomer Jon Nguyen, making his feature directorial debut. The documentary first premiered at the Venice Film Festival this month, and will likely show up at other festivals (including London) before theaters. No other release info is available yet, stay tuned for news. Any big fans of Lynch?

Lynch is one of my favorites for sure, he is one of a kind. And even at the age of 70 he has better hair than me.

I love his surreal style, really excited to see the continuation of Twin Peaks next year. And his hair is awesome, dude!

I loved Dune. I watched it more than 20 times. I hated Lost Highway, which I consider as a bad trip. Lynch has a unique style. But he isn't for everyone.

First off, I would kill for that man's hair. I will be eternally grateful to Lynch for Mulholland Dr. alone. No matter how many times I watch it, I still find it every bit as brilliant and challenging as the first time I saw it. It's like a cinematic Rubik's cube that I have yet to solve. I look forward to watching this. Any insight into that man's mind and life might help inspire me with my own artistic endeavors.

The portrait of an artist of an artist.

Of course he's unique in some sense. And not. And he is what he says, an imaginative guy with tremendous luck to express himself freely. I believe dozens guys/girls don't get the chance he got. Not that this is his fault, I think he just got some good cards and played them. Nothing wrong with that. From time to time, his work is interesting and sometimes is just his way of understanding film, art, society and culture and not everyone can cope with that. I wish more people, imaginative in some way would get more chance to express them. Maybe then we could see that Lynch isn't so special and that means this world is not so free when it comes to free expression of ideas ...
