Product description

David Lynch (USA, b. 1946) is perhaps the bestknown of all cult directors, whose Mulholland Drive marks cinema's arrival to the 21st century. His career began more than 30 years ago, with the groundbreaking, mystifying Eraserhead (1977). With Blue Velvet (1986), Wild at Heart (1990) and Lost Highway (1997) Lynch breathed new life into the sensory experiences of film audiences and disrupted narrative logic to mysterious and mystifying effect. In the early 1990s he invented a new TV series genre with Twin Peaks. Although he is a Hollywood director, Lynch works at the edges of the studio system, exploring the many facets of his artistic talent, whose creations, including photography, painting and music, are now making their way into museums and galleries.

Review quote

'modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners.' Saga 'short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors' The Times 'exceptional value .. lively and accessible ... indispensable' Obessed with Film.com 'bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes. ... briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers ...The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating. ... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique.' Total Film
