This is a MUST WATCH film for any David Lynch fan, and/or artist who appreciates the process of creation.

You don't have to be a fan of David Lynch to enjoy this film, however, when you watch this, well, you may become one. I've been an avid, longtime admirer of his work and even I didn't know what to expect going into this. Typically reserved, almost to the point of enigma, Lynch appears gladly forthcoming and almost candid in this rare portrayal. The Art Life, filmed over several years, begins with his upbringing in Montana through to his cult hit, Eraserhead. Interspersed with Lynch's own paintings, his creative process, and soundtracked by music he himself created. It's just brilliant!
