Jon Nguyen - 2016 - 93m

A fascinating look at Lynch’s art, music, and early films, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world and giving audiences a better understanding of the man and the artist. As he says, “I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas, and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them. Even if they’re new ideas, the past colors them.” We’re invited in and given private views from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as he tells personal stories that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark.

“There's old home-movie footage too, lots of it previously unseen, and it all feeds into that image of Lynch as the twisted by-product of middle America, an apple-cheeked Eagle Scout who somehow got drawn into the dark side.” - Tom Huddleston, Time Out

“A fond portrait of how one man nurtured his artistic temperament and risked being misunderstood - sometimes by his own family.” - Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
