David Keith Lynch (born January 20, 1946) is an American filmmaker and visual artist. Over a lengthy career, Lynch has employed a distinctive and unorthodox approach to narrative filmmaking (dubbed Lynchian), which has become instantly recognizable to many audiences and critics worldwide. Lynch's films are known for nightmarish and dreamlike images and meticulously crafted sound design. Lynch's work often depicts a seedy underside of small town America (particularly Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks), or sprawling Californiametropolises (Lost HighwayMulholland Drive and his latest release, Inland Empire). Beginning with his experimental film school featureEraserhead (1977), he has maintained a strong cult following despite inconsistent commercial success.
