Chattanooga Film Festival 2017: David Lynch - The Art Life

Once again, I was able to return to the Chattanooga Film Festival with Mass Listeria!  I love cinema in all of its forms, so the Chattanooga Film Festival is one of my favorite times of year because I spend four days being surrounded by movies and fellow film lovers!  To get a sense of why I love the Chattanooga Film Festival so much, read my post from the start of my coverage of the 2016 Chattanooga Film Festival (found here)...every word of it still holds true!

We already did an overview episode on Mass Listeria (found at, but for the next several episodes of The Gargyle Podcast, I'll be providing reviews of each of the films that I saw individually.  Up next in my coverage of the 2017 Chattanooga Film Festival is:  David Lynch - The Art Life

I'll be providing the description of the films provided in the Chattanooga Film Festival program and trailers via YouTube, when available.  The descriptions and trailers of the movies might let you know what they are about, but if you want to know what I thought of them...well, you are just going to have to give the podcast a listen.

The CFF program description for David Lynch - The Art Life was:
When CFF opened its pop-up art house theater Cine-Rama in 2016, we were proud to offer a screening of cult legend David Lynch's Eraserhead.  Years after that film's release, its raw power still hypnotized a room full of Lynch fans, a magical site for us to behold.  That's one of the many reasons, along with the other incredible films about the medium of film in our lineup this year - S is for Stanley and SCORE: A Film Music Documentary to name just two - this is a rare documentary that fans or newcomers can walk away from with equal appreciation.  David Lynch:  The Art Life did something that we hardly thought was possible - it made us love David Lynch and his body of work, as an artist and filmmaker, even more.  Seldom has a film been so aptly titled.  "Hearing about Lynch's life, we discover how his art and films have become colored by it," director Jon Nguyen said, "reflecting ideas and moods that have originated from his personal experiences."

I saw 21 feature films, short films, partial films, or live shows during the Chattanooga Film Festival!  So, be sure to check back soon for more of my CFF coverage!  And if you enjoy movies, conventions, comics, games, cartoons, Star Wars, horror, or just about anything sure to keep coming back for all things geekery!!  In the meantime, follow me here, on TwitterFacebookInstagram, and YouTube and be sure to subscribe to my podcast on iTunes and/or Google Play for more geek coverage!
