Authorship and the Films of David Lynch: Aesthetic Receptions in Contemporary Hollywood
This important new contribution to studies on authorship and
film explores the ways in which shared and disputed opinions on
aesthetic quality, originality, and authorial essence have shaped
receptions of Lynch's films. It is also the first book to approach
David Lynch as a figure composed through language, history, and
Tracing the development of Lynch's career from cult obscurity with'Eraserhead' , to star auteur through the release of'Blue Velvet' , and TV phenomenon'Twin Peaks' , Antony Todd examines how his idiosyncratic style introduced the term "Lynchian" to the colloquial speech of new Hollywood and helped establish Lynch as the leading light among contemporary American auteurs. Todd explores contemporary manners and attitudes for artistic reputation building, and the standards by which Lynch's reputation was dismantled following the release of'Wild at Heart' and'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me' , only to be reassembled once more through films such as'Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive' , and'Inland Empire' . In its account of the experiences at play in the encounter between ephemera, text, and reader, this book reveals how authors function for pleasure in the modern filmgoer's everyday consumption of films.
