David Lynch

David Lynch (born January 20, 1946) is an American filmmaker.

His love of surrealism is particularly notable in the disturbing but strangely incomprehensible film Eraserhead[?], and the television series Twin Peaks. Recently he has made some more mainstream (yet still strangely incomprehensible) films with studios like Disney.

His films tend to always feature small-town America (Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet...) or the sprawling vastness of LA (Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive) and the dark underbelly that exists in each one of them. Sound in his films is as equally important as the image with each soundtrack being worked on with painstaking care. He has managed to establish himself as one of the few director's who have an instantly recognisable style and remains one of the finest filmakers in operation.
