Walter Benjamin and David Lynch: An Inquiry

In the course of recent conversations about the distinctiveness of David Lynch’s films, I found myself drawn to the vocabulary of Walter Benjamin’s “The Work of Art &c.” Once made, the connection between Lynch’s techniques and Benjamin’s theory of film seemed to be overwhelmingly obvious, so I assumed that there must have been many articles written on the subject. My initial search, however, has turned up nothing. If anyone with superior research skills or with preexisting knowledge of an article along these lines could help me, that would be great.
