David Lynch Releases a Disturbing, New Short Film: Watch “Ant Head” Online

David Lynch has just released a new short film, and it’s not very long on plot. Pre­miered at the Fes­ti­val of Dis­rup­tion ear­li­er this year, “Ant Head” runs 13 min­utes and features–writes IndieWire–“one shot that depicts a block of cheese in the shape of a head being over­tak­en by an army of crawl­ing ants.” And it’s all set to music by Thought Gang, Lynch’s exper­i­men­tal col­lab­o­ra­tion with com­pos­er Ange­lo Badala­men­ti. You can pick up a copy of their brand new album, epony­mous­ly called Thought Gang, here.

    The beau­ti­ful, naked woman that popped-up amongst the ants was a pleas­ant sur­prise indeed!

    A man, an I‑Phone X and a met­al trash can, patient­ly trips. I though LSD was a thing of the past. The music is indeed an acid music evo­lu­tion and the poet­ry, a ver­bal­iza­tion of the mel­low freak out of Mr. Lynch! All in all, it’s all about the sound track.
