Born out of footage from the two years spent assembling Inland Empire (2006), Lynch is a documentary on the director considered long overdue by many of his critics. That being said, judging from the handful of available reviews, it is no more a documentary in the traditional sense than his own films could be considered off beat dramas or mysteries. The fact that the 82-minute Lynch (whose director is credited as “Blackandwhite”) is focused on all things Inland Empire, causes it to feel more like a supplementary feature to the 2006 film than a standalone, panoptic look at the artist’s life according to The New York Time’s review. Then again, with a filmmaker like Lynch, this observant, fly on the wall approach is probably more interesting than strict talking heads and exposition on his personal history. It seems as if it will play more like Derrida than anything else.
