Every fan of David Lynch’s cinema knows about the influence The Wizard of Oz had in his art. They also know that the resonance of the film directed by Victor Fleming in the images created by Lynch goes well beyond velvet curtains and red slippers. Lynch/Oz dissects the depth of that correspondence in an exhaustive manner, through visual essays made with different personalities, which include directors John Waters, David Lowery and Karyn Kusama. Each of them reflect on concepts, elements and images that relate to each other and produce new meanings in the cinema of the director of Blue Velvet —the sound of the wind as a source for mystery, the different forms of evil—, apart from acknowledging the echoes of these films in their own work. It is also perhaps the definitive analysis of the 1939 classic.
