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.
