Call No: 81LYN TOD Author: Todd, Antony Source: UK Place: London Publisher: I.B. Tauris PubDate: 2012 PhysDes: ix, 181 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; AUTEUR THEORY; LYNCH, DAVID; DUNE (US, David Lynch, 1984); BLUE VELVET (US, David Lynch, 1986); TWIN PEAKS [TV] (US, David Lynch & others, 1990-1991); MULHOLLAND DRIVE (US, David Lynch, 2001) Summary: "This fresh contribution to studies on authorship and film explores the ways in which shared and disputed opinions on aesthetic quality, originality and authorial essense have shaped receptions of David Lynch's films. it is also the first book to approach Lynch as a figure composed through language, history and text.
Antony Todd traces the development of Lynch's career from cult obscurity with Eraserhead to star auteur through the release of Blue Velvet, as well as the television event of the early 1990s, Twin Peaks. He investigates how Lynch's 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. Through the evidence of critical and promotional ephemera and the texts carrying Lynch's name, Todd explores contemporary manners and attitudes for artistic reputation building. He also reviews 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 Dr. and INLAND EMPIRE.
This book also ventures beyond its empirical findings by addressing authorship concerns pertaining to the ways in which, and to whom, the contemporary auteur has meaning. In its account of the experiences at play in the encounter between ephemera, text and reader, Authorship and the Films of David Lynch explores how authors functions for pleasure in the modern filmgoer's everyday consumption of films."-BOOK BLURB Notes: includes bibliographical references; includes index ISBN: 9781848855809 Contents: -- introduction -- 1.Towards a Textual Historicity -- 2.David Lynch: The Making of a Post-classical Auteur -- 3.Meanings and Authorships in Dune -- 4.Critical Theory and `Cruel Jokes': Principles of Ethics and Pleasure, and the Reception of Blue Velvet -- 5.Twin Peaks: The Rise and Fall of a Public Auteur -- 6.Brand Lynch -- 7.Receiving Mulholland Dr.: `A Contemporary Film Noir Directed by David Lynch' -- conclusion -- notes -- bibliography -- index -- More info

In her film reviews, she dissects the 'mega' filmmakers of our time - Steven Spielberg, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Pedro Almodovar, Ken Russell and David Lynch. Definitely not 'one of the boys', Suzanne Moore's attitude to the good and famous is refreshing and irreverent." -Book blurb.
