David Lynch: The Art Life

There aren’t any log-toting ladies or gas-huffing psychopaths in David Lynch: The Art Life—but it has the dreamer of the delightful oddities in Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive. This documentary features the 71-year-old director/artist in his sunny outdoor studio creating countless pieces of fine art, fiddling with latex and dollops of paint and cursing to himself when his drill doesn’t cooperate, all while his tiny daughter Lula keeps him company. To soundtrack the long stretches of Lynch smoking and sitting, he tells stories of his childhood in the Pacific Northwest, art school in Philadelphia, and his rise as a cult director with 1977’s Eraserhead. It’s a fascinating look into living the art life with a wonderful and weird artist.
