Works of art are easy to overlook at first glance. Some art is so far ahead of itstime that only the passage of years will help it be appreciated. Many films must wait forchanges to cultural tastes and style before their audience's sensibilities are attuned toreceive them. Many masterpieces of art and literature are greeted at first withunderwhelming or even hostile reviews before one day gaining the recognition theydeserve. Films directed by David Lynch definitely fall into this category.As a filmmaker, David Lynch has established his place in the forefront of contemporary cinema, intrepidly following the path of his dark and sometimesstrangely comic imagination, even on its course into psychologically deep, dauntinglyuncommercial and critically treacherous waters.For this reason, I choose to write this paper about the most intriguing directorsof the last few decades, whose spellbinding works are always capable of engrossing theviewers. His astonishing works are difficult to understand and they always leave roomfor discussions.Providing a portal into the collective subconscious, the daydream nationconjured up in tales such as Blue Velvet, Lost Highway or Mulholland Drive is by turnsfrightening, exasperating, revelatory and wild. Nobody makes films like David Lynch.He is the tour guide through a world of dancing dwarves, femme fatales and little blueboxes that may or may not contain all the answers. We wouldn't want to live in theplaces he takes us. Somehow, we suspect, we do.
