Directors David Lynch and Dan Zukovic meet in the Los Angeles City Beat cover story by Cole Coonce, ‘Social Climbing at Jumbo’s Clown Room’

“When the two filmmakers shook hands, I feared there would be two piles of ashes where each man had been sitting. You know: Lynch and the anti-Lynch, intersecting like matter and anti-matter, creating the mother of all cosmic and metaphysical implosions inside a tittie bar on Hollywood Boulevard.”

Writer Michael P. Scasserra of IFC News comments on DARK ARC as part of his
article “Letter from the Montreal Film Fest”

DARK ARC, a self-consciously odd visual poem from Canadian director Dan
Zukovic, was a scopophilic’s dream come true. Stylized within an inch of its
life, this “psychosexual psychodrama” centers on a “non-sexual escort” and
make-up artist (the alluring Sarah Strange) who hooks up with a wealthy
pervert and ex-art critic. Together, they create a series of “visually
charged images” carefully designed to seduce an unwitting graphic designer.
A bizarre blend of art, sex and opium, DARK ARC plays like a candy-colored
version of David Lynch. ”
