Lynch's obsession with the darkness that dwells beneath life's surface runs through much of his work. The director's twisted perspective is evident in the startlingly original Eraserhead, with its disturbing yet fascinating portrayal of a young man dealing with fatherhood. Lynch made further journeys into the underside of existence with is controversial masterpiece Blue Velvet, the bizarre road movie Wild at Heart and, perhaps most famously, with the gripping and surreal Twin Peaks TV series. Drawing on a brand new interview with David Lynch, The Complete Lynch is the only comprehensive study of the work of this cult director, which ranges from 1967's Six Figures Getting Sick, to The Straight Story and Mulholland Drive. Separate entries are devoted to the other media in which Lynch has excelled, and to the many unrealised film, television and even radio projects. Lynch's style and recurring themes are analysed in this exhaustive and revealing guide to one of the masters of modern film-making.
