as well as offering fascinating insights into the working practise, philosophy and idiosyncrasy of Missoula, Montana's most famous Eagle Scout, LYNCH (one) is a work of strange and elliptical beauty in itself.

like going to the zoo and catching the tiger during his nap instead of feeding time.

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

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.

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.

Anyone looking for a general overview of the director will do better looking elsewhere.

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

What really keeps Lynch interesting is its coverage of the production process; the access is so intimate, we feel as if we are witnessing firsthand the birth of something artistic and significant.

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

Lynch offers a fascinating view of Lynch's irascible personality.

The film would be better entitled Lynch for Beginners.

"Lynch" is a lo-fi behind the-scenes-mini-portrait of a dry-witted artisan loyal to his search for dramatic textures.
October 25, 2007
A forthright portrait of a sincere and fertile artist with the courage to follow his ideas wherever they lead.
October 24, 2007
This behind-the-scenes portrait of David Lynch, shot over the two years it took him to piece together Inland Empire, is as skewed, prismatic, and free of fluff as the man himself.

The movie's lack of direction grows tiring after a while, but Lynch's unfettered drive to let his mind unload is never less than fascinating.

Much of this is tedious -- no more or less exciting than surveillance-cam footage of a regional sales manager.
