Critic Reviews for A Slice of Lynch

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (11)

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

Boston Globe
Top Critic

This deeply undisciplined profile flaunts enviable access to Lynch's L.A. compound and movie sets but little insight or probity.

We get an all-access pass to watch the master at work, both on location and at his home-workshop-studio in Los Angeles. Those who aren't part of the filmmaker's substantial cult will be less intrigued.

Top Critic

Filmed over a two-year period during production of David Lynch's Inland Empire, Lynch, like the feature it loosely chronicles, has no immediately discernable throughline and a wide variety of video-image densities.

Provides little new insight into Inland Empire, but it does reinforce the auteur's reputation as a one-of-a-kind genius.

Whether you dig Lynch, a feature-length video visit with the director David Lynch, will largely depend on your views of his work.

Audience Reviews for A Slice of Lynch

Of all the modern film directors out there, David Lynch is one that would seem to be a great subject for a documentary. You'd certainly be right to assume that, but the picture at hand fails because the makers of the documentary have nowhere near the creativity and imagination of their subject. The bulk of the documentary follows David Lynch through the early stages of filming his film Inland Empire. It shows some of his day to day workings as well as some of his photography and paintings. It is interesting enough to watch, but doesn't dig nearly enough. It merely points the camera in Lynch's general direction and doesn't evoke any emotion or investigate the depth of his creativity. David Lynch is quite a character and deserves a much better film about him...
