Now It's Dark: The Films of David Lynch

Possessing a special ability to both challenge and entertain, David Lynch is somewhat of an anomaly in the world of contemporary cinema. A transcendental renaissance man, Lynch has left his mark not only on cinema but on other media as well, trying his hand at acting, television direction, painting, and composing.
