Upsides: Some great, earthy quotes and observations from Lynch, like "If you don't like the doing, do something else." Stuff you probably don't know about Lynch: He calls Laura Dern "Tidbit" ("like a little treat...a little piece of meat or something") , reads the Bible for inspiration (he says he did this with Eraserhead), and believes that artists should be happy and well-rested instead of suffering.
- Like his deaf character in Fire Walk with Me, Lynch usually talks VERY LOUDLY.
- No matter who they are, old people's stories about the good ol' days can be somewhat tedious and weird...Upside or downside, depending on your point of view: Quirky editing and herky-jerky camerawork. Very unLynchlike. Richard loved it, though. He says it was "amazingly better" than Lynch. (Since Lynch might very well have directed Lynch himself, I guess this is moot.)
Conclusion: I think it would be next-to-impossible to work for Lynch, with instructions like "I need a one-legged teenager and a pet spider monkey...".
A must-see for those intrigued by Lynch and/or the creative process. Anyone else might be bored sh**less.
