Notes for a David Lynch adaptation of Moonwalk.

Notes for a David Lynch adaptation of Moonwalk
Edited by Steven Boone
Featuring the words of Michael Jackson and Katherine Jackson, and the films of David Lynch

I watched this tonight after seeing it linked from Roger Ebert’s Twitter, and I was blown away (and reduced to tears). Steven Boone isn’t the first person to draw comparisons between David Lynch’s films and the life of Michael Jackson—one need only refer to a tabloid from the mid-’80s to speculate on their mutual affinity for The Elephant Man, after all—but this is just so beautifully assembled.

On a related note: This seems to have been forgotten by everyone who wasn’t a Michael Jackson fan in the early ’90s, but David Lynch directed a teaser ad for the Dangerous short films in 1993. It’s pretty great.

    I bet you already know this, but there’s going to be a Michael Jakson Cirque du Soliel called the Immortal World Tour!

    I heard it on the radio this morning, and your post totally reminded me to check the website for tickets. I just checked It doesn’t open in Toronto until October 2011, but it’s in NY in April.

      Yes, April 2012 (!)…and it’s already sold out. I’ve sort of half-decided to go when it’s in residency in Vegas with friends.

      I never manage to attend huge events like this. Tickets are always so expensive, and I have trouble committing so far in advance. :/

    while I was skeptical at first, I’ve really been enjoying Lynch’s fashion work lately like the Lady Blue film for Dior, commercials for Gucci etc. Never knew of his MJ work though, interesting!
