The Press Reviews

  • An essential creative autobiography for all Lynch fans. Full Review

  • While it falls short on detail in some areas, the essence of Lynch the artist - or at least, what he's willing to share with his audience - is fascinating to observe, leaving you wanting more. Full Review

  • Mostly, the documentary is a fond portrait of how one man nurtured his artistic temperament and risked being misunderstood - sometimes by his own family. Full Review

  • Jon Nguyen's carefully-calibrated ode to Lynch is in itself Lynchian, an essential picture for the director's legion of fans. Full Review

  • Throughout the documentary, the undisguised regret and longing of David Lynch's reminiscences are often startling. Full Review

  • There's old home-movie footage too, lots of it previously unseen, and it all feeds into that image of Lynch as the twisted by-product of middle America, an apple-cheeked Eagle Scout who somehow got drawn into the dark side. Full Review

  • Extravagantly surreal as the products of his imagination may be, they are deeply rooted in personal history and philosophy -- and it's this connection that Jon Nguyen's disarmingly off-kilter documentary... probes to rewarding effect. Full Review
