David Lynch as Actor: How His Onscreen Persona Has Evolved From ‘The Cleveland Show’ to ‘Lucky’

David Lynch as Actor: How His Onscreen Persona Has Evolved From ‘The Cleveland Show’ to ‘Lucky’
Here’s a strange thought: David Lynch has been in front of the camera more often in the last 10 years than he’s been behind it. Though rarely thought of as an actor in the same manner as other on-camera directors, Lynch has appeared not only in several of his own projects — most recently the “Twin Peaks” revival, in which his Gordon Cole became one of the main characters — but an expectedly far-flung range of others as well. Though he only lends his voice to some of them, he imbues each role with his nonpareil essence.

Lynch made no feature-length films or TV series in the 11 long years between the release of “Inland Empire” and this new “Twin Peaks,” but he did grace us with his presence onscreen several times. Most prominently — and weirdly, and hilariously — that

Beauty vs Beast: Listen to the Lady in the Radiator

Jason from Mnpp here -- this Thursday David Lynch's cult masterpiece Eraserhead is marking its 40th anniversary! 40 years have passed and I still haven't seen anything like it. Even among Lynch's work it still feels singular - you know how there's the blue key in Mulholland Drive that opens the little box? Sometimes I feel like Eraserhead is the blue key. Everything flows through it. It's his beautiful brain's Rosetta Stone, but good luck deciphering it. Anyway let's celebrate the film with this week's round of "Beauty vs Beast" shall we...

Previously You guys gave James Marsden a very happy birthday week, giving his Enchanted performance a whopping 85% against Patrick Dempsey's. That's one of the soundest beatings I think we've ever had. Said PoliVamp:

"Prince Edward all the way. He's so enthusiastically sincere that, even if the sex was terrible, he'd still find someway to make sure you enjoyed it.

The 25 Best Female Movie Performances of the 21st Century

The 25 Best Female Movie Performances of the 21st Century
Much has been made about the dearth of strong female roles in contemporary cinema, and the problematic depictions of women in many recent movies, but the past two decades have provided plenty of counterexamples. While the onus is on writers and directors to craft strong female characters, the actresses themselves bring these figures to life, and they’re often the main reason we keep being drawn back to these works.

In no particular order, our favorite — and we’d like to think the best — female performances of the 21st century.

Isabelle Huppert, “Elle

Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle” begins with a laugh that catches in your throat: A wide-eyed cat looks off-screen to the screams of a man and woman in apparent orgiastic bliss. Then comes the cutaway, which reveals a far more nefarious incident: Middle-aged Michéle (Isabelle Huppert), in the process of getting raped by a masked assailant on the floor of her home.

Is ‘Mulholland Drive’ Really the Greatest Film of the 21st Century? (Or How I Learned to Love David Lynch)
Until a few months ago, if the name David Lynch came up in film discussion, I would have inwardly shrugged. It had been years since I watched one of Lynch’s films. It had also been years since Lynch had even made a new feature (the last one being Inland Empire in 2006). But after screening […]

Time to Binge 30 Rock, Because It's Disappearing From Netflix in October

Netflix giveth, and Netflix taketh away. Though the streaming giant is bestowing upon us a ton of exciting new titles in October (Miss Congeniality! Stranger Things season two!), that also means it has to get rid of a bunch of existing programs to make way.

Tiff 2017. Correspondences #10

  • MUBI
Dear Kelley and Fern,As you both noted earlier, John Woo’s Manhunt was a thrilling, tongue-in-cheek compendium of the director's best qualities. This kind of masterful self-reflexivity may rub some the wrong way—remember, at the time, the hostility to De Palma’s Femme Fatale and Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. as if they were only Directors' Greatest Hits?—but when done smartly this is no mere masturbation, but a celebration and self-questioning, honed to deft precision, of an artist’s perennial themes.Such is the case with one of the few great feature films I've seen here in Toronto, Paul Schrader’s First Reformed. In remarkable contrast to his last film, the coked-up cartoon Dog Eat Dog, it is is a self-consciously austere drama of a wearied priest (a tremendous, hollowed-out Ethan Hawke) of a minuscule congregation housed in the oldest church in America, one dismissively dubbed the ‘souvenirs shop’ by the newer,

Canon Of Film: The Backstory

This being my first post on Age of the Nerd, I feel a slight need to introduce myself before I introduce this hopefully continuous and long-running feature here. I’m David Baruffi, and years ago, I created something called ‘Canon Of Film‘. Well, “Created” is pushing it, I know I’m not the only or first, or thousandth person who’s ever decided that writing a bunch of short essays about particular movies, but my intention behind the list was far more personal.

This origins of this list started innocently enough, I was simply trying to make a short list of films to recommend to a friend of mine. I was still going to my local Community College at the time, and had not yet decided to become a film major, but was beginning to lean in that direction. Anyway, I made a short list of what were at the

‘Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone’ and the Indisputable Mastery of Hideaki Anno

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

In the world of Japanese pop auteurs, there are few rising stars as unpredictably eclectic, temperamental, and consistently fascinating as Hideaki Anno. Anno began his professional life in the early 1980s as a young animator working literally

Twin Peaks: was this the long, perfect goodbye from David Lynch?

Twin Peaks: the Return was the culmination of Lynch’s life’s work. But its last, weary moments were surely proof that he’s bowing out on us

David Lynch’s debut Eraserhead was the greatest home movie ever made. Shot over five years in a disused stable block behind the American Film Institute where the director was living at the time, it was painstakingly constructed frame by frame by a group of committed friends – the very definition of a labour of love. Exactly 40 years later, Lynch has just completed his most personal project since. Twin Peaks: the Return may have had a starry cast, cutting-edge digital effects and an 18-hour run time. But at heart, it was just another home movie: the work of an artist coming full circle, incorporating everything he’s learned in four decades as a filmmaker back into the hands-on, Diy template he established with his first film.

Why 'Twin Peaks: The Return' Was the Most Groundbreaking TV Series Ever

Why 'Twin Peaks: The Return' Was the Most Groundbreaking TV Series Ever
When some phrases pass through the prism of Twin Peaks, you can never hear them the same way again. "Damn good coffee" is one; "Gotta light?" is another. We'll submit a third candidate, one that the just-concluded third season of David Lynch and Mark Frost's supernatural murder-mystery masterpiece has marked for permanent retirement from the critical vocabulary: "Like nothing else on television." The TV landscape remains full of singular, spectacular shows, Peak TV fatigue be damned. But just as the original Twin Peaks inspired visionary showrunners from David Chase

New to Streaming: ‘Mulholland Dr.,’ ‘Death Note,’ ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Berlin Syndrome (Cate Shortland)

While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth. Locked in a Berlin apartment, there is little hope for our protagonist for nearly the entire runtime. And while some of the story’s turns can feel overtly manipulative,

Coming-of-Age Meets Slow-Burning Horror in U.S. Trailer for ‘Kill Me Please’

After stopping by festivals such as SXSW, Venice, and New Directors/New Films, Anita Rocha da Silveira’s Kill Me Please will finally be hitting U.S. theaters next month. The Brazilian coming-of-age meets slow-burning horror film follows a group of high school girls who start to become obsessed with the victims of recent murders in their area. Ahead of a release, a new trailer has now landed.

“With its inky, stalking sense of darkness and warped surrealism, David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. is an obvious touchstone for Silveira’s sensibility, but her visual milieu feels just as evocative of disparate directors such as Carlos Reygadas, Céline Sciamma, and Harmony Korine,” we said in our review. “Her camerawork doesn’t so much follow as glide, and Silveira isn’t shy about starbursts of color (e.g. a refracting neon purple prism from a headlight). The sequences are carefully composed but not immune to playful tricks,

Win ‘The Bleeder’ On DVD – Liev Schrieber Leads The Story Of ‘The Real Rocky’

To co-inside with its release on on DVD, Blu-ray & Digital August 21st, we have two copies of the boxing biopic The Bleeder to give away.

The Bleeder is the true-life story of Chuck Wepner, a liquor salesman from New Jersey, who went 15 rounds in the stunning 1975 heavyweight world championship against the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali, and ultimately inspired the billion-dollar Rocky franchise. In his ten years as a boxer, Wepner endured eight broken noses, 14 losses, two knockouts, and a total of 313 stitches. But his toughest fights were outside the ring: living an epic life of booze, drugs, wild women, exemplifying incredible highs and extraordinary lows.

Featuring a fantastic cast led by Liev Schreiber (Spotlight, Ray Donovan) as Chuck, The Bleeder co-stars Naomi Watts (Mulholland Drive), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid’s Tale), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show) and is directed by

Twin Peaks season 3 is exquisite, but why am I so unenthused by it?

Samuel Brace on Twin Peaks season 3…

Twin Peaks season 3 (The Return) had been something fans of the show, and of David Lynch, were dreaming of for years, and its revival has provided television viewers with some truly incredible moments, and some seriously beautiful filmmaking. But there is something about the resurrected series that just isn’t working. There is something about it that is leaving me a little indifferent to its existence.

David Lynch is a master, one of the few left in the world of cinema. His content has enraptured us for decades, inspiring a thought process regarding his work matched by very few in the business. There is nothing quite like a Lynch movie or episode of Lynch TV. The likes of Mulholland Drive (my personal favourite Lynch film), Blue Velvet, and The Lost Highway have so much to offer for those willing to have their minds twisted

NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ on 70mm, ‘On the Silver Globe,’ Double Features & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.
