So says the reigning king of weird cinema, David Lynch. Famous for cult TV show Twin Peaks (which has finally returned to screens after almost twenty-seven years) and for films like Mulholland Drive (which was recently voted the best film of the 21st Century in a BBC critics poll), Lynch started out as a painter.
Like his films, his paintings are unsettling in a way that's hard to put your finger on. Unlike his films, they're a bit crap. Still, a look inside the man's creative process will always be interesting. Lynch could direct a Coke Zero commercial and still make it get under your skin.
Containing clips from twenty conversations recorded over four years, The Art Life is a Kickstarter-funded look at Lynch's mindset, as well as his life up until Eraserhead (1977), the surreal and horrifying film that marked his cinematic debut.
Lynch was a Boy Scout as child, which is certainly an incongruous (and not un-Lynchian) image. Perhaps it was while representing everything hale and wholesome about American life that Lynch developed a sixth sense for its hidden sicknesses? David Lynch: The Art Life promises to shed at little light on the matter.
