David Lynch (USA, b. 1946) is perhaps the bestknown of all cult directors, whose Mulholland Drive marks cinema's arrival to the 21st century. His career began more than 30 years ago, with the groundbreaking, mystifying Eraserhead (1977). With Blue Velvet (1986), Wild at Heart (1990) and Lost Highway (1997) Lynch breathed new life into the sensory experiences of film audiences and disrupted narrative logic to mysterious and mystifying effect. In the early 1990s he invented a new TV series genre with Twin Peaks . Although he is a Hollywood director, Lynch works at the edges of the studio system, exploring the many facets of his artistic talent, whose creations, including photography, painting and music, are now making their way into museums and galleries.

I hadn't known of film maker at all before I read this, but I do recall seeing two of the films he made (which were good, and weird too). And with having read this I'll be looking into the others.
