4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!
Today is David Lynch’s birthday! The master of American surrealism and dream-like noir is 74 years old. One of my fondest memories of the past ten years comes from those glorious few months in 2017 when Leonard, Ryan, Jeff and I watched and analyzed every single episode of Twin Peaks and Twin Peaks: The Return. It was not only a chance to reacquaint ourselves with a master but it was also a lot of fun as well. I mean, Lynch may be best known as a surrealist but he’s also a damn good director.
It’s been three years since the final episode of Twin Peaks and we’re still debating that final scream.
In honor of Lynch’s birthday, it time for 4 Shots From 4 Films! It’s difficult to do one of these for David Lynch, not because it’s hard to find material but instead because it’s so difficult to narrow it down to just four shots. Lynch has been making films from the 70s and, visually, every single one of them is stunning. For this post, I’ve limited myself to the work that Lynch has released in the 21st century.
(And yes, Twin Peaks: The Return counts as a movie!)
