David Lynch is best known for such cult classic films such as Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive and The Elephant Man. He’s known for a signiture style that is at the same time off-putting, but very subtly beautiful; his work has a very recognizable look to it. Lately, the Academy award nomminated director has been dabbling in mediums other than film.
Music, in Lynch’s later career, seems to be playing a big part in his life. He’s released a few albums that have seem some critical acclaim and now he is joining with Nine Inch Nails mastermind, Trent Reznor to unleash the first video from the band’s upcoming comeback record, Hesitation Marks (out September 3rd, 2013). Reznor himself is a winner, with Atticus Ross, of an Academy Award for his Original Score for David Fincher’s The Social Network.
The two previously collaborated on Lynch’s film Lost Highway, a soundtrack that gained a lot of cult following upon its release in 1997.
Normally at FlickSided, we wouldn’t post about music videos, but the director’s importance to contemporary cinema is undeniable and any work of him from behind a camera is of note.
