    So you had no idea what was happening in David Lynch's "Inland Empire." Take comfort in the fact that, judging from the documentary Lynch, the filmmaker was just as puzzled as you. show more

    Isn't exactly a straightforward biography, but rather a snapshot of the iconoclastic American maverick at a particular point in his career. show more

    Lynch (one) may be the documentary David Lynch wants, but I'm not sure it's the one he or we deserve. show more

    As skewed, prismatic, and free of fluff as the man himself. show more

    It’s precisely the worshipful feel of Lynch -- including scenes in which the camera points up at Mr. Lynch from what seems to be the floor, as if it were a faithful dog -- that makes the movie so sweet and so appealing. It’s like watching a schoolgirl crush unfold, through a glass darkly. show more

    Lynch offers a fascinating view of Lynch's irascible personality (and insatiable appetite for coffee and cigarettes), and captures him discussing his formative years in Idaho and Philadelphia, as well as his 30-year involvement with Transcendental Meditation. show more

    Much of this is tedious--no more or less exciting than surveillance-cam footage of a regional sales manager, even if this one's desk offers a glimpse at one point of a legless baby doll. show more
