Ah, Irony by kelljoi January 18, 2005 - 8:24 AM PST

Lynch is a strange, strange matter how many times everyone in this flick keeps insisting how normal he is. But isn't that what we love about him? This focuses mostly on his art (duh) and "Lost Highway" with a few tidbits about his other films. A little lopsided, but definitely interesting for a Lynch fan.

David Lynch is presented here as an artist with a distinctive vision. The commentary keeps saying how normal Lynch is, very Midwestern, "rolls his Rs" when he speaks, but I don't know who they think they are fooling. This is one twisted dude. The movie poster has a piece of rotting raw beef in its center and shaped intentionally by Lynch using live maggots. He makes some nice but odd furniture in his woodworking shop. Basically a very prolific artist skilled in paints, woodworking, photography, musical composition (collaboration), and of course movies. You don't have to like Lynch's movies to appreciate this documentary, only be interested in observing the creative process. His movies are too creepy for my tastes, but this documentary stands on its own.
