Lynch

Lynch

This spontaneous-seeming documentary about director David Lynch by director blackANDwhite opens in a deserted Polish factory where Lynch waxes poetic while snapping endless photos of the building’s rusted and desolate interior. Welcome to the giddy cruel world of David Lynch, an artist slavishly collecting ideas, images, and weird atmospheres to cherry-pick from later. There are plenty of candid David-talking-on-the-phone while sitting at his immense desk-moments. Witness Lynch writing posts for his website and shouting to his assistants, of whom the director treats the fairer sex much better. "Lynch" is a lo-fi behind the-scenes-mini-portrait of a dry-witted artisan loyal to his search for dramatic textures

Not Rated, 84 mins. (B+) (Four Stars)
