Intriguing look at the man behind the macabre madness.
24 June 2001 | by (The Mitten State, USA) – See all my reviews

An in-depth look at artist/filmmaker David Lynch's movies, paintings, drawings, photographs, and various other works of art. Features interview footage and commentary by family members, friends, fans, and people he's worked with, as well as behind-the-scenes antics of some of his most critically praised efforts. Also includes a compelling reunion with the cast of "Eraserhead" as they wander around the filming locations and recap funny stories about the movie's production. Filmed and compiled around the release of Lynch's "The Lost Highway", this was no doubt used as a promotional film. "Eraserhead" star Jack Nance died shortly after filming.
