David Lynch Revisited: Why We Need His Genius Now More Than Ever — Critics Debate

24 March 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s note: On the heels of David Lynch’s imminent return to the small screen with Showtime’s much-anticipated “Twin Peaks” continuation, the singular filmmaker is also the subject of a brand new documentary — “David Lynch: The Art Life” — and a full-scale IFC retrospective. With Lynch poised to rocket back to the cultural consciousness, IndieWire’s Eric Kohn, David Ehrlich, Kate Erbland and Anne Thompson traded emails about the mysterious auteur’s talent and its continuing relevance today. 

Eric: I love David Lynch, but find the source of his popularity questionable, and am concerned about his imminent return with “Twin Peaks.” He’s one of the best-known American filmmakers of our time and probably the least understood. When “Eraserhead” became a midnight movie phenomenon in 1977, it wasn’t because people flocked to the theaters in the hopes of understanding the literal meaning of Lynch’s nightmarish black-and-white debut. »

Exclusive: See the trailer for the new 4K Restoration of David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive

24 March 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

While the two worlds chant out the names of David Lynch and Twin Peaks in heady expectation of the cult series’ revival we’re also diving deep into the murky waters of pure Lynchian nightmare fuel. Last year Lynch’s 2001 masterpiece Mulholland Drive was voted the greatest film of the 21st Century, and with good reason. In anticipation of the beautiful new 4K restoration of the film hitting UK cinemas on the 14th of April we’re proud to debut the new trailer today.

Naomi Watts in David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive is a timeless classic. Conceived as a TV series by David Lynch the film is the perfect millennial enigma. Elements of fragmented identity, worlds shrinking and expanding under a spotlight, the pull and clasp of fame – these are all in the mix here. As we have become ever so much more used to »

‘Eraserhead’ 40th Anniversary: Watch David Lynch Explain His Movie Over Four Decades of Interviews

19 March 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Happy “Eraserhead” day! David Lynch’s first feature was released on March 19, 1977, and his surrealistic ode to fatherhood has been a topic of conversation among interviewers ever since. Although Lynch has gone on the record as literally saying “I never talk about themes,” it hasn’t stopped scores of journalists from trying to get him to explain the meaning of “Erasherhead.”

Below are five fantastic interviews — from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, and ’10s — where Lynch analyzes the film as only he can. Watching all of them is a fascinating glimpse into his mind, as well as an opportunity to see how his ideas have changed as he’s grown older.

This 1979 gem appears to be the earliest recorded Lynch interview. “Eraserhead” is the primary focus, and it’s a fascinating time capsule. »

In the Overlook, Everything is Fine: ‘The Shining’ as Directed by David Lynch

14 March 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Don’t think one of the scariest movies ever can get any scarier? You’re wrong.

Question: what’s scarier than riding your big wheel through an empty hotel, turning the corner, and finding yourself face to face with twin little girls dressed in matching baby-blue dresses, and oh yeah, they’re dead?

Answer: riding your big wheel through an empty hotel, turning the corner, and finding yourself face to face with a full-grown, malformed-cheeked woman who looks way to happy to see you and can’t stop singing, “In Heaven, everything is fine.”

This hypothetical scenario comes from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, of course, and in the question portion, I’m sticking with the original, little Danny Torrance bumping into the Grady Twins. In the second, however, you might have picked up that the figure described is the infamous Lady in the Radiator from David Lynch’s Eraserhead. Now »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Gemini’

12 March 2017 9:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s an old saying that goes, “Nobody comes from Los Angeles.” Rather, the city is made up of millions of displaced souls who’ve found their way to Los Angeles from someplace else, which goes a long way to explain why no two filmmakers seem to view the city in the same way — because everyone, in some way, is an outsider there. A few years back, indie director Aaron Katz moved to Los Angeles from Portland, Ore., synthesizing his impressions into the gleaming blue sapphire that is “Gemini,” a subtle, sophisticated neo-noir focused on the odd co-dependent relationship between a starlet and her personal assistant — and how that dynamic is tested when one of them drops dead.

Although Katz unveiled “Gemini” at South by Southwest (the same film festival that effectively “discovered” him 11 years earlier with “Dance Party, USA”), this sleek and playful identity puzzler would have been right »

6 Things We Learned About Noah Hawley, ‘Fargo,’ and ‘Legion’ at SXSW

11 March 2017 4:05 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“It’s a weird-ass show.”

During an hour-long chat at SXSW, this was probably the most obvious thing Noah Hawley said. The Austin-based writer, director, and showrunner was referring to “Legion,” but such a blunt descriptor could certainly apply to “Fargo” as well.

Hawley covered both of his signature FX shows and much more during a conversation with Philipp Meyer, the creator of AMC’s upcoming western, “The Son” (which is set to premiere at SXSW on Sunday). Below, we’ve pulled out all the highlights from Hawley’s talk, and we can safely say they’re anything but obvious.

Legion” Season 1 will have an ending.

Hawley was far more comfortable talking about “Legion,” which is currently airing its first season on FX, than “Fargo,” which doesn’t return until April 19. That’s not typically the case with creators and returning shows, but “Fargo” starts a new story each season, »

‘The Shining’ Meets David Lynch in this Terrifying Mashup — Watch

28 February 2017 3:55 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Imagine, if you will, an alternate universe in which Stanley Kubrick never directed “The Shining.” The thought alone would be enough to give fans of the film pause. But, what if we got a version of “The Shining” that is somehow creepier than the one Kubrick made? What if David Lynch got his hands on the classic horror story instead? Richard Vezina’s “Blue Shining” takes us into this alternate reality and it is absolutely haunting. The eight-minute video re-imagines “The Shining” as a David Lynch film by integrating clips from “Blue Velvet,” “Twin Peaks,” “Mulholland Drive” and more. Unsurprisingly, Lynch’s surrealist themes work with terrifying effect in this mashup.

Q&A with Voodoo Writer / Director Tom Costabile

24 February 2017 9:18 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Out today in select theaters and on VOD is the new found footage horror film VooDoo, and for our latest Q&A feature, we caught up with the movie's writer and direct, Tom Costabile, to discuss the guerilla-style approach to VooDoo, shooting the "Hell" scenes, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Tom. How and when did you first come up with the idea for VooDoo?

Tom Costabile: Thank you for the interview, I’m honored! The real estate crash happened and was lingering for a long time. I owned a mortgage company at the time and I couldn’t get it back off the ground. So I finally had time to invest in why I came to La in the first place for the first time in ten years and just started writing. Within a year or so we were on set. »

Peter Travers' 2017 Alt-Oscars: From Scorsese to 'Deadpool'

Come Sunday, a.k.a. Oscars night, we'll all be tipping our hats to the year's winners. But before we do that, here's to the "losers" – the worthy ones of 2016 that, for whatever cockamamie reason, didn't even get a nomination.

In an effort to do right where the Academy effed up, I give you the Travers Awards – my own personal version of the Alt-Oscars. (For those of you playing along at home, the award is an engraved image of a critic screaming.) It's one last chance to single out the »

New Trailer for 'David Lynch: The Art Life' Doc on Lynch's Early Years

10 February 2017 7:15 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Sickness. Corruption. Fear in the air. It was so good for me." Janus Films has debuted a new trailer for the documentary titled David Lynch: The Art Life, a look at the life and work of American director David Lynch. Lynch is beloved by critics & cinephiles for his films like Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr. and Inland Empire. This doc premiered at the Venice and London Film Festivals last year, and should be arriving in theaters this spring. The film focuses mostly on his early years and many of the various inspirations and moments of his life that made him into the artist he is today. This looks fascinating and totally weird, which is just about right to tell the story of David Lynch. Check out the new footage below. Here's the newest trailer (+ poster) for Janus Films' doc David Lynch: The Art Life, direct »

I’m worried about Legion. Before you take this the wrong way, let me clarify; I’m over the moon in love with the pilot, but I’m worried with what other people will think. Not the critical reception, because as you’ve probably seen for yourself by now, the show is earning rave reviews. No, I’m worried about it finding an audience. As I’m »

Legion Boss Makes Sense of the Trippy Series Premiere — Plus: Grade It!

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Wednesday’s Legion series premiere.

It’s understandable if you came out of Legion‘s total mind-warp of a series premiere with lots of questions. Heck, by the end, even the main character wants to know: “Is this real?!”

Wednesday’s premiere of the FX superhero drama (based on the Marvel comic) introduces us to David Haller, a troubled patient at a psychiatric hospital. When new patient Syd arrives, David falls in love — and gets zapped by a supernatural force when he tries to kiss her. Suddenly, he’s switched bodies with Syd, a »

David Lynch (Plus One) At The Egyptian | 6712 Hollywood Blvd.

With the long-awaited third season of Twin Peaks just around the corner, the American Cinematheque pays tribute to David Lynch throughout February at their flagship Egyptian Theatre with a retrospective pairing 7 of the director’s most beloved films (all but one screening on 35mm) with other works from throughout the history of cinema that share odd affinities with Lynch’s originals. Some of the correlations are more obvious than others, but each makes for an inspired double feature. Of the more immediate bedfellows, there's Mulholland Dr. and Sunset Boulevard (Feb. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Spielberg, Rohmer, ‘Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence,’ ‘The Keep’ & More

13 January 2017 8:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Three Spielberg pictures screen this weekend, while Rohmer is highlighted with Pauline at the Beach and Full Moon in Paris on Friday.

A Rocky-Creed mini-series run on Friday and Saturday.

BAFTA Nominations: A Good Day for Ken Loach and ‘La La Land,’ Less So for Diversity

10 January 2017 2:03 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There was a time, way back in the mists of the 20th century, when you wouldn’t have looked to the BAFTAs to confirm any predictions you had about the upcoming Academy Awards — not least because they took place comfortably after the Oscars, happily marching to their own beat not just in terms of scheduling, but voting too. Those were days when “Jean de Florette” and “The Commitments” won Best Picture, while Wim Wenders could sneak in a Best Director win for “Paris, Texas.”

They’re also very much over: Since 2001, when BAFTA jumped back to precede the Academy’s shindig, they’ve embraced their Oscar precursor status, gravitating almost exclusively around films and artists with awards buzz echoing from across the Atlantic, and giving mostly short shrift to Britain’s own independent cinema.

This morning’s BAFTA nominations see them largely stick to that system, albeit with some key »

David Lynch Drops Laura Palmer Hints in Surprise ‘Twin Peaks’ Talk

David Lynch remained true to form in a surprise appearance to promote “Twin Peaks” Monday, managing to tantalize with rune-like pronouncements that left reporters scratching their heads. “This word ‘expect’ is a magical thing,” the mysterious writer-director behind “Blue Velvet,” “Mulholland Drive” and other films told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, California, when asked about the new version of his fabled murder mystery “Twin Peaks” that will premiere on Showtime May 21. “People expect things and hopefully their expectations are met when they see the thing.” Showtime decided to bring Lynch out alone to answer. »
