About this deal

As the cinema foyer filled with the aromas of damn fine coffee, the animated discussions whirled before spilling out on to the street, so that passers-by catching a few fragments of conversation about the mysteries of Lumberton, the sinister underbelly of Twin Peaks, or the depravity of Bobby Peru could be forgiven for surmising that it was a convention of detectives (or perverts). Hailed by some critics as the century’s best film so far, Lynch’s Mulholland Drive began life as a failed TV spin-off of his cult series, Twin Peaks.

This session is about the gulf that exists between Lynch’s work and Lynch’s mouth – the sinkhole that can open up between intention and effect. David Lynch is primarily known as a filmmaker whose singular cinematic/televisual creations have held audiences both spellbound and perplexed over several decades. Yet he initially trained as a fine artist and has continued to work as such throughout his life, using a wide variety of media to express his unique artistic vision across various fields.In this paper I will suggest that Lynch’s work, in whatever medium, is best understood as that of a visual (and sonic) artist. Only through Freud can we discern in Lynch's films an authentic effort of thought, not just a postmodern confusion.

I totally get it,” my then-partner uttered, victoriously, as soon as the lights came back on in Amsterdam’s Kriterion movie theater, where we had just watched David Lynch’s 2001 thriller “Mulholland Drive.In this talk I would like to take a look at some of the remarkable parallels between David Lynch’s masterpiece and Lacanian psychoanalysis. The central premise of this talk is that in each instalment of the trilogy, a psychogenic fugue follows the unconscious trauma of unrequited love.
