Critic Reviews for David Lynch: The Art Life

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (13)

Some of the more obtuse and mystifying elements of his work stem from direct memories filtered through his hallucinatory imagination.

Is there a more rewarding way of spending 90 minutes than watching Lynch putter, reminisce, and work on a sculpture? Maybe, but you'd need to give Lynch the budget to produce another feature to find out.

May 5, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Lynch's art is filled with frightening images, but there's nothing scarier in his work than a father's wrath, whether it's expressed in rape, murder, or just the silent shake of a head.

For some viewers, it will be more than they want to know, but for Lynch's many partisans, it's required watching.

For Lynch - who hasn't made a feature since 2006's "Inland Empire" - the look back is clearly edifying, as you can feel him reflecting upon his journey in between long drags on his cigarettes.

No one else weighs in on Lynch here - it's all him, all the time. And, although chatty, he's not the warmest or most engaging presence. Still, Lynch devotees should dig this respectful, offbeat portrait.
