One of the most unique filmmakers working today, writer and director David Lynch is best known for his mysterious and oftentimes absurd feature films, including The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, and Mulholland Drive. After receiving a grant from the American Film Institute, Lynch moved to Los Angeles in 1977 where he began work on his debut film, Eraserhead. The success of that film caught the attention of producer Mel Brooks, who then recruited Lynch to direct The Elephant Man in 1982. Lynch has since directed many more notable films, including Lost Highway,Inland Empire, and multiple episodes of the hit television series Twin Peaks.
