Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lynch may be the documentary David Lynch wants, but I'm not sure it's the one he or we deserve."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Filmed over a two-year period during production of David Lynch's Inland Empire, Lynch, like the feature it loosely chronicles, has no immediately discernable throughline and a wide variety of video-image densities."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"as well as offering fascinating insights into the working practise, philosophy and idiosyncrasy of Missoula, Montana's most famous Eagle Scout, LYNCH (one) is a work of strange and elliptical beauty in itself."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"What really keeps Lynch interesting is its coverage of the production process; the access is so intimate, we feel as if we are witnessing firsthand the birth of something artistic and significant."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"A forthright portrait of a sincere and fertile artist with the courage to follow his ideas wherever they lead."
‑ Jurgen Fauth, About.com
"This deeply undisciplined profile flaunts enviable access to Lynch's L.A. compound and movie sets but little insight or probity."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Provides little new insight into Inland Empire, but it does reinforce the auteur's reputation as a one-of-a-kind genius."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"like going to the zoo and catching the tiger during his nap instead of feeding time."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"The film would be better entitled Lynch for Beginners."
‑ Rob Humanick, Slant Magazine
"The movie's lack of direction grows tiring after a while, but Lynch's unfettered drive to let his mind unload is never less than fascinating."
‑ Eric Kohn, New York Press
"We get an all-access pass to watch the master at work, both on location and at his home-workshop-studio in Los Angeles. Those who aren't part of the filmmaker's substantial cult will be less intrigued."
‑ Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle
"Whether you dig Lynch, a feature-length video visit with the director David Lynch, will largely depend on your views of his work."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Anyone looking for a general overview of the director will do better looking elsewhere."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
""Lynch" is a lo-fi behind the-scenes-mini-portrait of a dry-witted artisan loyal to his search for dramatic textures."
