David Lynch

Biography

David Keith Lynch (born January 20, 1946, in Missoula, Montana) is an American filmmaker. Lynch's films are known for their elements of surrealism, their nightmarish and dreamlike sequences, their stark and strange images, and their meticulously crafted audio. Often his work explores the seedy underside of small-town U.S.A. (e.g. Blue Velvet and the Twin Peaks television series) or sprawling metropolises (Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr.). Due to his peculiar style and focus on the American psyche, producer Stuart Cornfeld once called Lynch "Jimmy Stewart from Mars." Over a lengthy career, Lynch has developed a consistent approach to narrative and visual style that has become instantly recognizable to audiences worldwide. Although not a box office giant, he is a consistent favorite of film critics and audiences alike, and has maintained his strong cult following while earning general acclaim.
