User Reviews

excellent first effort from a promising young director
3 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary begins without much excitement: OK, so the recent film-school graduate admires the famous director David Lynch (his girlfriend accuses him of being obsessed) and since David Lynch likes and recommends transcendental meditation, the young man (the director) also gives TM a try. Just when I was asking myself why the director wasn't looking at TM with a more critical eye, things got very interesting. I don't want to give too much away, but eventually both David Lynch and the TM organization threaten to sue the young film-maker. And the whole thing got started because he was nuts about Lynch! There is also a sub-plot about his (the young director's) personal life which helps the viewer connect with the main character. This film is well worth viewing, especially for those who sometimes think about investigating more thoughtful, alternative approaches to life.
