Audience Reviews for David Lynch: The Art Life

  • Nov 08, 2017
    Yeah the focus is on Lynch's painting career and childhood/adolescence but these anecdotes help put his filmography in context. You may not still understand his movies but you'll definitely see what inspired them.

    Listening to those life anecdotes is not really interesting or revealing, to be honest, even though some of what Lynch says can be pretty funny and amusing, and it is hard to overlook the fact that the film ends right when it is starting to become more interesting.
