David Lynch is an American film director, television director, visual artist, musician and occasional actor. He produced his first motion picture, the surrealist horror Eraserhead (1977). After Eraserhead became a cult classic on the midnight movie circuit, Lynch was employed to direct The Elephant Man (1980). He proceeded to make two films: the science-fiction epic Dune (1984) and then a neo-noir crime film Blue Velvet (1986). Lynch created his own television series with Mark Frost, the highly popular murder mystery Twin Peaks (1990–1991); he also created a cinematic prequel, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), a road movie, Wild at Heart (1990), and a family film, The Straight Story (1999), in the same period. Turning further towards surrealist filmmaking, three of his subsequent films operated on "dream logic", non-linear narrative structures: Lost Highway (1997), Mulholland Drive (2001) and Inland Empire (2006).
