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. »

Laura Dern can’t tell us what happens in the “Twin Peaks” revival or even who she plays, but she’s enthusiastic about the return of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s iconic TV series all the same. “People have to tune in, because I am just so excited about it,” the actress told Vanity Fair during the premiere of “Big Little Lies” earlier this week.

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 »

Laura Dern Week: Inland Empire.

9 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We're celebrating the great Laura Dern all week in honour of her 50th birthday. Here's David on the film that sent her down a rabbit hole...

It would be easy for an actor to be a puppet in a David Lynch film, lost as they are in a labyrinthine maze of the mind. The chronology is distorted and the characters’ consciousness is constantly splitting and merging in a kaleidoscope fashion. Laura Dern, though, knows the director better than most, and their most recent collaboration, 2006’s Inland Empire., places at her at the centre of an intricate puzzle of which she is all of the pieces »

Chrysta Bell’s ‘Beat the Beat’ Video: David Lynch’s Muse and ‘Twin Peaks’ Star Shares Grimy VHS-Inspired Clip – Watch

25 January 2017 1:14 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Chanteuse and actress Chrysta Bell has been a longtime musical partner of David Lynch since they first created music back in 1999. Now, the ethereal singer has released her third and final video off of her “Somewhere in the Nowhere” Ep, written and produced by Lynch.

Directed by Sharif Nakhleh, “Beat the Beat” is a look into the cyclical nature of modern life and a “subdued anthem for Kafkaesque and mundane human existence.” The video is described as “a dirty dub VHS tape featuring a slice of Americana with Italian subtitles suggesting it could have been discovered in a second hand shop in Bologna.” The clip shows a grimy bar run by a bored looking bartender until Bell, wearing a black slip dress designed by Nima Shiraz, arrives and gets everyone moving with her hypnotizing voice.

David Lynch talks 'Twin Peaks' at TCA event

9 January 2017 4:20 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The elusive filmmaker and artist attended the Showtime session at the annual Television Critics Association press tour on Monday and spoke cryptically about his reboot of the beloved series.

Lynch revealed that Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost reached out to him “many years ago” and suggested a return to the creepy world they created in Washington state for ABC back in the 1990s.

“We met at Musso & Frank and talked, that’s what got us going again for this one.”

The pair worked on the script via Skype. Showtime president David Nevins said FBI Agent Dale Cooper’s return to the setting of the original series forms the backbone of the reboot.

Besides Kyle MacLachlan, returning original cast include Mädchen Amick in the role of Shelly Johnson and Kimmy Robertson as sheriff’s office receptionist Lucy Moran.

Lara Flynn Boyle and Joan Chen will not return to the 18-episode package.

‘Twin Peaks’ Rumored For Sundance Film Festival Debut

3 January 2017 6:17 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We don’t really have to explain why “Twin Peaks” is one of our most anticipated shows of the year, do we? David Lynch‘s return to his cult series, and his first real piece of narrative since “Inland Empire,” is hugely exciting, and not just because of the absolutely bonkers cast. Thus far, Showtime has been playing the secrecy game around the show, without even a hint of a premiere date (more on that in a second), but the first look at “Twin Peaks” could be coming much sooner than everybody expected.
