Lynch (One)

Posted by martinteller on April 30, 2010

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Inland Empire (part two appears on the I.E. DVD), directed by a former associate of Lynch’s who goes by the enigmatic name of “blackANDwhite”.  Lynch is a fascinating character, and this documentary accomplishes pretty much everything you would want.  It gives you insight into his creative process, it’s very entertaining (he’s a funny guy), it makes you want to revisit all his movies, and it inspires your own creativity.  I was particularly taken with how Lynch was both afraid and intrigued by his own make-it-up-as-you-go-along methods for Inland Empire.  “blackANDwhite” sometimes gets annoying with certain quirky tricks, but for the most part he manages to capture the spirit of David Lynch.  Rating: 8
