The Strange World of David Lynch
Anyone who has watched Twin Peaks or sat through the dark and grainy world of Eraserhead knows that David Lynch's films pull us into a strange world where reality turns upside down and sideways. His films are carnivals that allow us to transcend our ordinary lives and to reverse the meanings we live with in our daily lives. But what do Lynch's films have to do with religion? Wilson attempts to answer that question in his book. Wilson illuminates not only Lynch's films but also the study of religion and film by showing that the most profound cinematic experiences of religion have very little to do with traditional belief systems.
