dc.description.abstract It is the intention of this thesis to provide a reasoned analysis of the films of David Lynch, in order to locate Lynch as a Postmodern filmmaker. Although other filmmakers have been seen to include elements of Postmodernism in their work (Tim Burton is an example), few directors have attained Lynch's recent prominence or popularity. His recent television series, Twin Peaks, has created an even larger audience for his filmic style, and the guest directors employed were obviously encouraged to employ a similar technique, in order to create a coherent filmic philosophy.
