mystery is like a magnet...

INLAND EMPIRE David Lynch's new film INLAND EMPIRE was shown out of competition at the Biennale in Venice where Lynch received the Golden Lion for Career Achievement. Lynch said "It's about a woman in trouble, and it's a mystery, and that's about all I want to say about it."

David Lynch is one of the most creative and fascinating artists of our time. He is best known as the director of such strangely beautiful pictures as Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart – the former received a best director Academy Award nomination; the latter won the Palm d'Or award at the 43rd Cannes Film Festival in 1990. Lynch became a household name when his innovative television series Twin Peaks aired around the world for two seasons in the early nineties. His 1997 release Lost Highway left a great deal of the audience puzzled and lost in darkness and confusion – however beautifully lost. The Straight Story, received the European Film Award in 1999. Mulholland Drive, rejected by ABC as a pilot for a new TV show, has been completed as a feature film for which Lynch received a Best Director prize at Cannes. But Lynch is not only creative as a filmmaker. He is also a painter, photographer and sculptor – his artwork was shown at galleries in New York, Paris and Tokyo. He designs furniture, composes soundscapes, writes song lyrics, and works as an author and producer.
