"It's a strange world" - David Lynch och den postmoderna filmen

Sandgren, Emma LU (2010) FIVK01 20092
Comparative Literature
Abstract
The purpose of this essay is to find out how director David Lynchs films can be described as a part of the postmodern film theory. Is David Lynch a director who is style-forming for postmodern film, or has he in fact adapted his film-making to the style as it has progressed? Relying on the works of Fredric Jameson and Linda Hutcheon, I first give a brief summary of the postmodern esthetics. Then using a more in-depht analysis of three of David Lynchs films (Blue Velvet, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive) I try to find postmodern stylistic characteristics in his productions. Finally, I discuss David Lynchs usage of postmodern esthetics throughout his films.
