Weirdsville USA: the obsessive universe of David Lynch
In his wildly varied career, David Lynch has experienced cult adulation, mainstream success, virtual rejection by the film industry, and a renaissance in which he created a style that can only be called Weird Americana. Weirdsville U.S.A. charts Lynch's work from his experimental art school years and the midnight movie hit Eraserhead, the mainstream success of The Elephant Man and the commercial failure of Dune, the birth of Weird Americana with Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks and the neo-noir mystery Lost Highway, to the present day and the film The Straight Story and TV series Mulholland Drive.
