David Lynch (Michael Chion)
Writer: Michael Chion
Synopsis: Erasing head to Mulholland Drive, some films of cult like Blue Velvet or lost Highway and a television series that made history, Twin Peaks, they have become to David Lynch one of the most exciting filmmakers of our time: a multi-talented creator that circulates between the television soap opera, cinema, painting and music.
This book, the most comprehensive published so far on Lynch, It has detailed the genesis of all his films, not without taking into account the role played in them by their contributors, they are actors or technicians. Chion performs a thematic and stylistic analysis of each work, located at Lynch in relation to the history of the cinema and, in this way, does emerge the multiple faces of an unclassifiable filmmaker: disturbing and neurotic, meticulous and obsessive, but also with great capacity for abstraction, respectful of tradition, a great researcher of image and sound. Storyteller of perverted sexuality and violent fustigador of conventional life, Lynch is also a romantic of our time and a creator of hymns to the world and the love.
