David Lynch: The Art Life
Cineaste, musician, artist, guru and coffee aficionado David Lynch takes us back to the roots of his creativity. A portrait of the artist as a young man, played by himself as a relaxed, candid, middle-aged man – with the emphasis on painting and how he swapped a cosy nest for an odyssey through his dark side.
