The Art Life (2015) is a terrific documentary about film maker, Jim Jarmusch, whose first film, THE HARD ROAD, was a true masterful piece of cinema. Now he is working on THE ROAD HOME, which he has named for his wife's hometown. The documentary focuses on his films, and his relationship with his wife, Angela (played by Angela Lansbury), and his son, Dylan (played by Jonny Depp). The documentary doesn't show us how Jarmusch came up with the ideas for the films, or the transition of the films from film to real life. Instead, it shows us how his films have shaped his life, and his family's life. This documentary also shows us some of his thoughts about cinema, and his philosophy of filmmaking. As a film maker himself, he knows that a great movie has to make us feel something. And this is exactly what Jarmusch's films do. They make us feel like we are watching a masterfully crafted piece of art. This is what THE ROAD HOME does. It makes you feel like you are watching a masterpiece, and you will never look at a movie the same way again. It makes you feel like you are at a museum. You will be mesmerized by this film, and you will never look at a movie the same way again. I don't want to say anything about the making of this film. It is a documentary, so you should see the movie yourself, and find out how Jarmusch and his team made this film. But the documentary doesn't have any audio commentary. It is a perfect documentary for anyone, or anyone who wants to see a masterful film. 9/10

While I was watching this movie, I kept saying to myself, "It's so sad, so sad." As I watched, I kept thinking about the characters and the world they lived in. I'm sorry, I loved this movie. It's filled with amazing images, interesting stories, and amazingly touching stories. I love how it reflects the humanity of the people it shows. It's an incredible film, and it should be seen by everyone.

I am not one to pass judgement on movies, even if they have me enthralled for a few minutes. But this one impressed me. The two-hour documentary is not for the faint of heart, and for those who are sensitive to gore, please remember to bring the kids. I'll end my review with the quote from the film, "The world has changed a lot since he and I were children. We were not exposed to some of the images and concepts that he would have encountered in school." I wish I could have been exposed to these ideas. I will definitely be watching this again. I think the movie itself is great. Not just a great documentary, but a great movie, period. A must see for all who enjoy their movies, and I hope it is available on DVD. 10/10

One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I am a big fan of Lynch, and I saw this documentary as a kind of tribute to the man. Lynch is an artist, a director, and a creative person, but he's also a human being, and a man. One of the things I liked about this documentary is that it really focuses on the process of making a film, and how a film becomes a story, and how art is tied to that process. It's also a really great look at the filmmaking process in Hollywood, because there's no other way to tell a story. This documentary shows how the filming of the film began, how the actors came up with their characters, how they came up with the script, and how they made the movie. I especially liked how they included interviews with the cast and crew of the film. I found that it was interesting to see how different people in different areas of the country approached the film, and how different people interpreted the film. Another great thing about this documentary is that it really shows how art has changed over the years, as different styles have become more popular. For example, when the film was released, art was mainly done with hand-held cameras, and then you had the Polaroid cameras that were made popular by the seventies. So, I think this is a great documentary, because it really shows how art has changed, and how art is tied to the process of filmmaking, and how it is actually being made today. I give this documentary a 10/10.

Lynch's films are a world unto themselves and are very impressive on the screen. One of the great things about Lynch is that it takes its time to develop its characters, its characters are not self-important, they are not self-satisfied. They are people who have a lot of problems and we care about them because they are all such people we are all in some way connected to. The last part of the film is when our protagonist, the writer, is leaving the hotel where he is staying and is told to get a taxi. He picks up a taxi and proceeds to take it to a strange hotel in the middle of the desert, and the taxi driver tells him that he will be on his way within half an hour, he says he will be there. In the meantime, he has taken care of his mother's health problems and has become close to his girlfriend and her mother, and his mother has died. This is a wonderful story and a very powerful film.

This is a wonderful portrait of an artist, painter and even more a collector. The viewer is drawn into a way of life that is both fascinating and tragic. I think this film is more about the collection, the art and the collector than the artist. I think it is very hard to do art these days. I think the film is about the collection and the collection and the collector more than the artist. It was a great pleasure to watch this film and have the opportunity to talk to the director and the photographer. It is a very interesting subject and this film is a good place to start. This film is a true story. It is also a true art story. It is one of the most beautiful films I have seen in a very long time.

I didn't know much about Lynch before seeing this documentary and it was a great documentary. It was very interesting to hear the conversations between him and his fans, especially the people who idolized him. I am a big fan of his, so I was very impressed with the style of the film. The footage is great and the interviews with people like the filmmaker of the movie, who makes a living making films about Lynch, are very interesting. I definitely recommend this documentary.

Just finished watching this documentary on my viewing of the 2017 festival. A great documentary, if you're interested in art. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the art and what is known as art in general.

I've just finished watching this film for the first time and I must say that it is a very entertaining film. I loved it, but I was a bit confused by some of the information given by the other comments. For instance, was The 'Stormy' by the same artist? If not, then how does the title refer to the painting? This is a great film to watch, and I look forward to seeing the new version of 'The Shining' soon.

I was surprised to find that The Art Life by David Lynch was one of my all time favorite films. For me, it was a truly unique and rewarding experience. David Lynch was the most fascinating filmmaker I have ever had the pleasure of watching, and I was in awe as I watched this. The film was so dark and so mysterious that I couldn't help but feel for the characters. I felt for the troubled and abusive husband, I felt for the religious man, I felt for the child, and I felt for the father of the kidnapped girl. The film was both fascinating and shocking, and I was able to see some of the dark sides of human nature. I was impressed by the director's ability to show these things to a large audience in a way that I had never seen before. I felt like I had actually been there. I was so captivated by this film and I was blown away by the depth of emotion and thoughtfulness. It was a film that made me think and I felt very connected to everyone in it. I believe that David Lynch is the most unique and unique filmmaker of our time. I hope that he does not forget that and that he continues to make movies that are as great as The Art Life is.

This is a fascinating, well-told and entertaining documentary that provides a great insight into the life and work of film director and cinematographer Roger Corman. This film is not for everybody and in some ways is a bit too dark and in some ways is a bit too quiet for its own good. I can understand how some viewers might be turned off by the whole thing. In my opinion, though, this film is a must see for everyone. It was a great pleasure to watch it and I think that it is the best documentary I've ever seen about one of the most intriguing men to ever live.

In the last two years, Lynch has made several films that did not really fit into the Lynch canon. The people at Criterion Films released this DVD (the final) and it is perfect. The title was a bit misleading, but the one thing that I felt this movie was missing was the old Cronenberg's music. I found that the music fit so well into the movie. The way the music blended in with the film was very nice. In a weird way, I was surprised to see the film was not rated PG-13. The first half of the film was dark and foreboding. I was a little scared to see a young child running around in the woods. I did not see the previous films (The Elephant Man and The Straight Story) that had nudity in them. The only nudity that I could see was in the first half of the film. In the second half, I could see the film was more PG-13 than the first half. The nudity in this film was good. I really enjoyed the scenes where they were dancing and drinking. That was a new thing for me, and I can see why the younger generation may not like the film. However, if you are a Lynch fan, I think this is a must have for your collection. It is very rare that Lynch has not made a film that fits into the Lynch canon. I hope this is the last one for him.

Laura Hillenbrand's approach to Laura Hillenbrand's approach to her life and career is to have an emotional close-up shot of her. This makes her personal life more transparent and allows us to see her struggle with both men and her family, which was not always easy to watch. We see how she and her husband worked to achieve success in the world of business, but we also see how she had a real desire to help those in need, even when it was not easy. This is an important message that is repeated throughout the film. The documentary does not say much about her work, but it is a powerful story of a woman who took great risks and courageously worked to achieve her dreams. I think it is a very good film and it is worth seeing.

The greatest filmmaker of all time. This documentary is amazing. It is very difficult to explain how important his work was to him, but this film is definitely a must. This is the first time I've ever seen a documentary about a great director's life. I can't wait to see more of his work. I also think that this documentary is great because it gives a glimpse of how he lived. The thing that I really liked about the documentary was that it didn't take a lot of time to tell the story. Everything was presented in a very straight forward manner, which I think helped the story flow. Another thing that helped the story flow was that there was not much music during the documentaries. The documentary was extremely enjoyable and the time I spent watching it was a very pleasant experience. I think the best thing about this documentary is that it makes you want to know more about Lynch. I think this is a great documentary because it is about a man who lived a lot of years and a lot of people were a part of his life. I think it is very important to watch this documentary because it helps you understand a lot more about a man who was a legend. This documentary is a must watch.

An amazing film. The life of a movie director. No one is the same. No one really knows how to make a good movie. In this documentary, I was impressed with the fact that there is a director in the world who can make a good movie. I don't think that this is even possible. But all the director's movies are good, so I am not the only one who knows this. I am also impressed with the director's life and his respect to the film making. In this documentary, I was especially impressed with the man's life. He is a very modest man who doesn't like publicity. He didn't want to do the interview before the film was finished. I was also impressed with the interview with the director. He doesn't talk about the movie, but he talks about his life. He was very quiet and he said that he doesn't want to do interviews. The whole documentary is great and I recommend it to everyone. This is a great documentary. I think that this is a great documentary.

I thought the documentary was very good. It is like a big puzzle, and you have to figure out how everything fits together. The reason I'm writing this review is because I had heard some bad things about this documentary. But I thought it was very good. The thing that really got me was how important the art and the culture of the art world is to the society and what it means to our culture. That was really good. I also liked the fact that it was not just about art and the arts. The movie covers a lot of topics, and does a good job of showing how art is important to our culture. It's like a public service to the art world. I think everyone should watch it. It's not just about art, but it's also about the culture of the art world and what it means to our culture. I think that it was a very good documentary.

I think this documentary was well made, but it could have been a little longer. The first half of the movie is interesting, and I liked the interviews with the cast and crew. Unfortunately, the movie veers into silliness as the second half progresses. The idea that it is somehow normal to have sex with a minor is ridiculous. The fact that the director doesn't know that the main character was actually a minor is more disturbing. If the director was a bit more careful, he might have found a better balance of information. As it is, the movie just seems to be a lot of fluff. I think this could have been a good film if it had been edited better. It just felt like an hour and a half of fluff instead of a documentary. I still recommend it to anyone who likes Lynch and/or art-house films. However, I think the second half of the movie would have been a little better.

I am a huge fan of David Lynch. I was a fan of his early films (both Lynch and the Coen brothers) and was a huge fan of his early TV work (The Golden Compass, The Man Who Knew Too Much, etc.). I have watched his early film "The Elephant Man" a few times and have also seen "Blue Velvet" a few times. I found this documentary to be excellent. David Lynch is an artist, and he is very special. This is the best film I have seen in a long time. I am not a fan of the Coen brothers, but they did a great job. The film is not really about the two of them, but about the artist. It is a great tribute to David Lynch and his art.

I was a kid and loved The Blue Fairy and I always loved the movie. I was fascinated by this guy's career, his life, and the subject of the film. I'm a huge fan of Robert Altman and his films. I was surprised to learn that Altman never actually met Lynch. I had never heard of him before and was curious to learn more about him. I was also curious to learn how he was able to make a film about the man and still keep it a mystery. This documentary is a must-see for anyone who loves movies, the man, or just curious about this world of ours.

I'm not really a fan of Lynch. I just think he's a very clever guy who has made some interesting films. This documentary is a good one to see for fans of Lynch. I'd definitely recommend it to any fans of the director. It's a very enjoyable documentary and has a lot of great information. It also gives a lot of insight into the way the man thinks, because it's all just a lot of speculation. The documentary shows how he thinks, and how he goes about it. The documentary is very informative. It's also very interesting to see how he's organized his life and how his life is organized. It's a very interesting documentary that I highly recommend. It's a very entertaining documentary and I think it's a good one to see.

Wish I could of loved this better, it could have been way more better but it was interesting to see different parts of the book done so well. So if you haven't seen it yet see it, you won't regret it.

This documentary is really great and I think it's a great place to start with Lynch. The way it's done is very different from what I've seen before. This one is very different from what I've seen before. It starts with interviews and it has some footage from some of the most famous scenes from his films. There are some beautiful images that can't really be found in any other documentary, which is nice to see. Lynch does a great job at showing the feelings he felt during filming, as well as the feeling he got after filming. The feeling of complete happiness after filming is something that's hard to find. I think the people who know Lynch will definitely enjoy this one. The interviews with his friends and family are great and they tell his stories and his feelings about the film. It's definitely something that's very different than what you'd normally get from a documentary. It's very nice to see how a famous person felt about the film, even if they didn't get to see it. If you're a fan of Lynch or of his films, I think you'll enjoy this documentary. It's really good and a great place to start. It's definitely something that's hard to find. 8/10

During the 1980s, cult filmmaker and filmmaker Roger Corman created one of the first art films, 'Mute'. The resulting film was a cult classic, and one of the most important films in the 80s. It was called "Life of Brian" in Britain, and even though it was a critical and commercial failure, it's popularity still makes up for it. The movie, however, is only for fans of cult films, or fans of filmmakers who've worked with one of the most influential films of all time. Roger Corman, who died in 2011, was a prolific American director who made movies that became cult classics, and was one of the best directors of his generation. He made films such as "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", "Unforgiven", "Carnage", "War of the Worlds" and "Triangle". His film career started off with "Mute", which is a controversial film and the first film to ever be banned in the United States, but it's got to be one of the most influential films in the 80s. This documentary is about the making of "Mute", but also the director's influence on the cult phenomenon that was "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" and "War of the Worlds". It's a great documentary about the cult phenomenon of "Mute", and it gives the audience a look into the minds of the cult film fanatics that "Mute" has become. It also shows the importance of Roger Corman's film. I think this is a good documentary about the cult film and cult filmmaker, and it's great to watch, because it's a film that everyone should see, regardless of whether or not you're a cult fan.

An excellent and personal documentary about the work of Lynch and his family and friends. Some of his greatest films are at the center of this film. I have seen every Lynch film and I find myself watching them more and more often. It is a very emotional documentary. The performances are excellent and the film is very informative. I really liked the idea of showing clips from all his films. The film does have some technical issues. The editing is a little off. I am not sure why the audio in the film was not consistent. The film is very well done and I recommend it to anyone who likes Lynch or documentaries.

If I had to sum this film up in one word, it would be interesting. I was drawn to this film by the two women who made it. I had never heard of Amy Madigan, but it seems she's a name you hear often. I also happened to have read the book that was based on her experiences. She's very talkative and interesting. I also enjoyed the story behind the film. It's very interesting. It starts off from an interview with her, and then continues to her daughters, who are there to talk about their mother's life. The film has some very insightful interviews with Amy's daughters and also with her mother. I was particularly impressed by the film. I thought it was a very interesting documentary. There are a lot of interesting things about the film that I will not spoil for you. What I will say is that I was very impressed by the documentary. It's a very interesting story about a very interesting woman and the documentary was very well done. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in Amy Madigan.

I would have to say, that this documentary is the best documentary I have ever seen. It is informative, and it really gets you thinking about life. It was very enlightening for me. I would recommend this to everyone.

This movie is a great look into what it means to be a filmmaker. It's not easy to make a movie, and it's also not easy to make a good one. The film is centered around filmmaker David Lynch. He's interviewed and discusses his work. I think the director's first project was the short film "Blue Velvet", which was a psychedelic classic. The following year he released "Twin Peaks", which was a cult classic. He made two more cult classics: "Eraserhead" and "Eraserhead II". The art that Lynch creates is really fascinating to watch, and I can't say enough about how brilliant he is. I really enjoyed the film. I wish more people had seen it. I was surprised that it was called a documentary. It's not really a documentary, but it is an interesting look into what it means to be a filmmaker. I can't say enough about this movie. I think it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I recommend it highly. It's a great look into the art of film making, and it's worth watching.

I first became aware of the surreal world of Stanley Kubrick when I watched his work on TV when I was a kid. So the idea of a man who was a visual artist and yet had a profoundly cerebral mind was of interest to me. This documentary provides a brief outline of his life, the films he worked on, and the people he influenced. But the most important aspect is the discussion of the aesthetics of Kubrick's work. It's fascinating to learn how he used color and composition to tell his stories. I found the pieces that were like paintings to be very interesting, such as "A Clockwork Orange" and "Eyes Wide Shut" and even "2001: A Space Odyssey." The imagery is unique and Kubrick is one of the few people in the history of the cinema who has used color so consistently throughout his career. Overall, I would say that this is a very interesting documentary and I would highly recommend it.

For anyone who is interested in the cinematography, music, or visual effects of the movie, I recommend watching this documentary. For those who want to watch a deeper look into the creative process, this is definitely the documentary for you. After watching this documentary, it is hard to not compare it to the use of a camera in a movie, especially in the editing room. Although I have no idea how this movie was made, I do know that a lot of effort was put into it, and it is one of the best films that I have seen in the last few years.

It's rare when I'm forced to watch a documentary and it doesn't make me want to write a novel. This is one of those documentaries. The subject matter, a truly enigmatic man who used his art to break down social barriers and unite the poor of the world, is truly a story to be told. But I'll let you in on a little secret. When you're watching a documentary, you're not watching it to figure out a story. You're watching it to understand the person. This movie is about David Lynch, the man, not about him. His life, his art, and his passion is what we're watching. It's a bit like listening to a lecture on any art form and not really understanding it. But the fact that this movie is about David Lynch is what makes it all the more interesting. He's not just a character, he's a work of art, and he's been doing it for over 60 years. David Lynch has never been a "great artist" or a "great director" or a "great writer". He was a visionary, a true artist, and he's been doing it for over 60 years. And while his art is indisputable, his life is mysterious. So is his story. If you're the kind of person who enjoys documentaries that deal with the most obscure and elusive subjects, then I would recommend this film. If you're the kind of person who enjoys films about the most interesting and enigmatic people in the world, then I would suggest you seek out a book by David Lynch. You're missing out on a lot of great stuff.

I really enjoyed this documentary, as it was interesting to hear how people relate to and feel towards the works of this genius, which many believe to be a work of fiction. This film was a great insight into the artistic process of a young man, and was insightful on the subject of creative processes in the film. I don't think that there were too many director's statements in this documentary, but this really didn't detract from the film. I loved the discussion and photography on the subject of this film, as well as the soundtrack which was also very good. Although I didn't know the history of the film, I felt it was a very well done documentary, and I will probably see the movie again.

I've always been a fan of the director and enjoy his films. However, there are times when I'm like 'this is getting ridiculous. What does this have to do with the Lynch films?' but it does and that's why this film is really good. Some of the stuff the director says about the art life is very interesting and it has the perfect place for some other stuff to come in. Basically, it's a fun documentary about some of the things that made Lynch and his film group very successful and successful they were. I love watching Lynch's films and this is a pretty good one to watch for the true fan.

Lynch has a strange sense of humour. He is able to say some of the most astonishing and disturbing things with a wink, and that is one of the things that makes him so great. He is able to take the most disgusting subject matter and make it funny. His interviews with the film crew and their producer and director are really quite funny, and you can really get a sense of how good Lynch is at making these weird, disturbing films. He is a brilliant director, and the interview footage with him and the crew is really quite good. He is able to use his influence with some of the directors he works with and give them some of his own opinions on how to make their films. The interviews with Lynch and the crew are really quite interesting, and they are great fun to watch. Lynch is able to make a film that is both entertaining and disturbing. The interviews are both interesting and funny, and he is able to do both at the same time. I really enjoyed this documentary and I recommend it to anyone who likes Lynch.

Lynch's history with film is a mixed bag. Some of his films have been great, and some have been terrible. Here, we are treated to a look at Lynch's earliest films as a young man, and how his first movie was a great success, with a box office return of over $15 million dollars. Lynch's films were very commercial, with a focus on the male body. He was already a director when he began his career. In the 70's, he began to experiment with more unconventional subjects, such as incest, and drug use. His films were a mixed bag, as his films were certainly more commercial. Some of Lynch's films were great, such as "The Elephant Man", "Blue Velvet", and "Dune". Others were terrible, such as "The Elephant Man", "Blue Velvet", and "Dune". This documentary is a good look at Lynch's career, but is not really Lynch's best film, as "Mulholland Dr." is his best film, as it is a very entertaining film. I would give this documentary an 8.5 out of 10. Recommended.

Cinema is one of my favorite genres. Movies about the films are ones that I truly love, and sometimes it is hard to distinguish between a good and bad movie. Lynch and I went through the same exact journey through a few of his films. I will always appreciate a good movie that is different, and I hope that everyone who watches this film enjoys it for what it is. The list of differences is extensive, but you will definitely enjoy this film. I can't say enough about the director's insight and his passion for film. What a fascinating film.

I agree with all the previous reviewers here, that the title of this documentary is misleading. Lynch's art is not about sex, it is about pure visual imagination. Lynch's films are a combination of the worlds of dreams, fantasy and reality. In some ways, Lynch's films are an extension of dreams and fantasy. They are full of surrealism, and some of Lynch's films are quite surreal. Lynch's films are also filled with brilliant visual imagery. It is not the fact that Lynch's films have many amazing images, that make them great, but rather the fact that they contain a lot of artistic merit. The documentary, "The Art Life" is an excellent documentary that shows Lynch's life in all its glory. The documentary is mainly about his work in photography. It shows all his films and talks about the photography in them. I also think the documentary has a great deal of information about Lynch's art. It is a bit long, but it is interesting and informative. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who has ever seen a Lynch film. It is a great documentary that will keep you entertained and interested. I give the documentary an 8 out of 10.

It seems like anyone who does a documentary on the works of Edgar Allan Poe, the subject of the movie, would be able to supply enough facts about his life and personality to be entertaining. But because that is not how Poe's life is known, as he died at the age of 40, the movie director and screenwriter James Schamus gets to do some historical research and produce a short documentary that is not only entertaining, but interesting as well. There are a lot of things to learn about Poe, but this is a good place to start. The movie is split into three parts, each about 15 minutes long. The first part covers Poe's childhood in his uncle's farm in Pennsylvania and his time spent working for the local merchant's shop. When he turns 17, Poe moves to the village of Rambouillet, where he lives with the Baroness, a brilliant but mysterious woman who later becomes his mistress. The second part of the documentary is Poe's first published work, "The Tell-Tale Heart," which is a play which depicts the last year of his life, from the time he was killed in 1819 to his return to Paris at the age of 35. It is not at all clear how much of the play is true, but the narration is all that matters. The third and final part is the film's own take on the book. Schamus actually rewrites the play in a way that might have been an idea he had when he first conceived the project, but also adds a little bit of the kind of wild, macabre humor that Poe sometimes used to craft his stories. Some of the changes aren't immediately obvious, and the ending is a bit abrupt. However, the documentary is very entertaining and works on a number of levels, from being informative to being an entertaining look at Poe's life.

A documentary about the television production of The Shining starring Jack Nicholson. It's not all bad. It does give a lot of information about the production, including what I've always wanted to know, which is, how did they get Stephen King to do this film? As it is, this is a very enlightening look at the making of this movie, as well as on the end of Nicholson's career. I loved it, I loved the interview with author Stephen King, and the book as well. This is a good look into the process of making a TV show, and also about the making of a movie. Definitely worth seeing, and definitely worth a watch. I hope this is the last time I see Jack Nicholson. I would suggest you watch it, but don't expect too much. I think that's enough for the casual viewer.

This film is rather unique in that it doesn't really discuss the subject at all. The film is instead a history lesson of how art has been part of human life since the beginning. We see the life of artists like David Sarnoff, who was an early adopter of films as a means of expressing himself, as well as the struggle of people like David Hockney, who didn't have the means to express himself. You see the old paintings of Picasso and Van Gogh, along with the early commercials and other art forms that have influenced art. All this history is explained in a very interesting way, and the films highlights many interesting moments in history. The music is also very good. The film was well made and very informative. I thought it was a lot better than the History Channel documentary, that I saw a few years ago.

A great movie about a great director and some of his most successful movies. I think this movie is worth a watch as it is a little bit hidden. This movie is worth a watch as it is a great movie to see for fans of Stephen Soderbergh and David Lynch. If you are a fan of either director then you will love this movie.

I was a fan of the original film from the 70's but was skeptical about seeing this version. The documentary was informative, well done, and it was well worth seeing. It was more entertaining than the original film and it didn't feel like a commercial. There were several scenes that I found to be very disturbing. It was very emotional for me and I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about the production of the original film.

For the first time in the movies I have ever been in an elevator, I have found myself seated on the opposite side from an actor. Most of the times, I was the new guy, in the seat beside the star. This is a great opportunity for most actors to learn about acting in a first-hand manner. The intro is broken up into four parts. The first two are about the basics. The next three parts cover training, acting, and the preparation of a character. The fourth part is more technical and introduces the director, editor, and production manager. The idea is that after being introduced to the industry, one can then look at how and why one is chosen to become a "pro" actor, for whom acting is a dream. I had no idea who this guy was. After watching this movie, I am a little more interested in what the next big actor is doing, and want to follow their career.

I enjoyed this documentary. It is a very good summary of the life of the man behind the Art House movement. It does not give a complete picture of his life as a "star" of film. But that is not what the film is about. What it is about is his artistic work, and his personal life. There are plenty of interviews of artists who have been influenced by him. The film does not cover this in great detail but it does cover his art and his personal life. And it does tell the story of his development as a person as well as the artistic work. The documentary does go into great detail about his early childhood, and his family history. His older brother who died at an early age also appears in the film. So this is a must watch for anyone who appreciates artistic works, or those who would like to learn more about the man. His art was most certainly an influence on his career. It is an interesting way to tell the story of a man who was deeply affected by art and who was very successful in his own way.

Kusturica is a fascinating character and voice. He was the English translator of the last four "eyes of the tiger" newspapers - almost as a subversive journalist. He has always been one of my favourite artists - a lot of my favorite films have been filmed on his sets. The talk show he was a guest on in 1984 became such a part of my childhood. It was important to be as close to him as possible and I believe this is what has caused his attitude towards film to be so strong. I have to say that I find it extremely sad that there are people who still don't believe that the world is full of anti-heroes. Kusturica believed in real heroes - the big villains who really were evil. He didn't say much about the heroes - because he didn't think it was his place to say them. The characters of the film were the villains, and Kusturica was their hero. It was a scene from the film that got my admiration. A young man, three hundred miles from his home, pretending to be one of the big bad guys, in order to stop an assassination attempt on a young woman. It was such a different role and the mask was worn very well. One of the great images of the film. I have no idea why people who don't like this film feel so strongly that it is so long and that it was basically a documentary. I think the movie is more of a biography than a documentary. It is the story of a man and his life in and around the cinema. It is not a very long movie but it is the story of a man and his life. It is a very good film and has its moments but it is very much about Kusturica, and not about other people.

Yes, Lynch is the "adult" in this documentary, but even he is questioned by a group of filmgoers and a few of his peers. The bulk of the documentary is more about interviews and a number of older school children and classmates discuss the early, more graphic films that were part of the "style" of Lynch's films. The presentation is by and for people who have never heard of, or seen, Lynch. The show notes and FAQ section seems to be more or less a self-help guide to get Lynch and those who know little or nothing about him up to speed. It's not really a documentary that should be taken seriously. Lynch has said that the world is going to end on December 21, 2012, and in a presentation on July 1, 2012, he said that he could see the end of the world as he was speaking. While that is far from an endorsement of apocalypse, I still think that it's a very interesting thought. But the more realistic thought is that the world is going to end on December 21, 2012. Either way, the ending is still way out there.

A great documentary, if you can get past the fact that the director is an alcoholic. It's a great look at the world of independent film and how it can be tough to make a living, even with a small budget. But it's also very entertaining, and you get to hear some great stories from some of the people who made this film. It's also interesting to hear the director's own thoughts on what his life was like when he was starting out and what he thought of the people around him. Some of the stories are pretty depressing, but they're still very entertaining. The first part of the film is mostly about his family and their alcoholism. This is a very interesting film because the director's own family was very alcoholic and he doesn't try to glamorize them in the film. He doesn't show them as being particularly good or bad people. He shows them as real people with real problems, and he uses this as a way to show the people around him that he's not taking it too seriously. That's really interesting to see, because we're supposed to be cheering for the people he was going to work with, and he's not trying to do that either. That's really interesting to me because I'm a huge fan of indie films and independent film, and I don't know many people who are. I think this film is a really great introduction to independent film, and I highly recommend it.

The Art Life is a great documentary about the surrealism of the late 1960s and early 1970s in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have not seen this documentary before, but it was fascinating. I was particularly impressed with the interviews with the artists, who are able to talk about their creation and the problems they had with the society around them. The documentary was well-paced and filled with interesting stories. I was also impressed with the use of stills, as well as the photography, in the documentary. The best part of the documentary was the interviews with the artists. I especially liked how they used stills to tell stories about their work. The interviewees were able to explain their ideas and their inspirations. Some of the stories were interesting and could be understood by anyone. I was impressed with the use of stills in the documentary. It was very interesting to see the images of the street scenes in San Francisco. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in the surrealism of the 1960s. It was a very interesting documentary.

With a big body of work (best known for his mime work in the first Twin Peaks episode, "The Missing Link", in 1968), Lynch once again gives us a non-linear tour of his private life, all the way from his childhood to his present day. This is a fascinating and at times hard to watch work, especially when it comes to showing how a person lives and operates in their everyday world. The feature film is very well-made, with the cast and the story as well as the cinematography and soundtrack making it an impressive affair. However, while it's not just about Lynch, it's also a portrait of the complexities of an icon who has always been an outsider to his peers. The downside of this is that the film takes a bit of time to get to the point, leaving an impression that there's a lot more to come. While this may be the case, the other side of this is that we get an interesting look at one of the most interesting men of his era, who was also the subject of some of his most iconic work. A big piece of the film's brilliance is that it presents a slightly different version of Lynch's life than what is known, focusing on what is actually in the public domain. With a lot of his work still being in the works, it's really an interesting look into his early days, as well as his later life. This is a film that is hard to get into, but it's an interesting look at one of the most prolific figures in film history.

A huge, ambitious documentary about one of the most enigmatic and inspiring film directors of all time. The film is largely dedicated to the man himself and his work, which is something very rare in the documentary world. Lynch is a very unique individual, whose film-making style is both unique and totally unique. This is a documentary about the man and his work, which is a very strange thing to say about. This is a very interesting documentary, which tries to cover a lot of ground in a very short period of time, and it's also quite fascinating. It's not a film that you can watch several times and you can pick up on little details here and there, but it's a film that will stick with you and it's a film that you can't help but be interested in. The interviews with Lynch are fascinating, the film is interesting, but it's very difficult to pinpoint the exact relationship between the interviews and the film. It's a film that will have its fans, but it's also a film that is quite difficult to find. It's a very unique film, but it's not as interesting as it seems to be. It's very strange and it's very strange, but it's also very interesting.

I am a huge fan of Lynch. The people that I admire the most, like John Waters, Jack Nitzsche, and the late Bob Clark, are all Lynch. The guy has a way of making movies that is truly unique. In this movie, Lynch shows his process in the making of "The Elephant Man". This film is very intriguing. It is a fascinating look at the film making process, and what goes into a Lynch film. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone. I just wanted to tell everyone that I loved it, and recommend it to everyone. The people that are saying that the film isn't "Lynchian" are either very young, or they are not able to see what Lynch is about. Lynch's films are a real treasure. I hope that people see this movie, and see it for themselves. I can't wait for "The Elephant Man" to come out on DVD!

I really enjoyed this documentary. It is a very well done documentary that goes into detail on a very unique subject, that is not often talked about in a documentary. I enjoyed the fact that this documentary was made by a very different sort of film maker, one that isn't afraid to break with convention and actually tell the story. Lynch does this with a really unique, and interesting, narrative style that I really enjoyed. There are no big surprises, or giant revelations that you expect. It is interesting to see how he tells the story, and how he manages to get you invested in his characters. This documentary is probably one of the best documentaries I've seen about the director. He gets it completely right. The documentary takes you through his entire career, and how he became one of the most famous directors in history. The documentary doesn't fall into any kind of "trailers" or "walkthroughs" for the films he's done. The documentaries itself are both interesting and interesting, and are very thorough in the way they tell the story. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone that wants to learn more about the man and the process of making a film. It is also a great documentary for those that like Lynch, or just the personal story of someone who was quite the legend.

I love Lynch's work. It's a case of how much you love a filmmaker that you can't help but adore them. This documentary examines his work and how his films have influenced cinema and art history as well as film and television. In a fascinating narrative, we hear from many different directors of the films he made. Some people are too short and don't speak very much. Some speak to get their point across. There's even a one-sided interview with Lynch himself. It's an interesting story that has some great insights. I thought the documentary did a good job of showing us just how much people admire and how much he loved making his films. There's also a great documentary on the making of the first film. This film was the first of the Master's work, and it made it to the Oscars. The film was an artistic and artistic triumph. The interviews with all the directors are great. In particular, the interviews with Rod Serling, Tom Hulce, and Dick Clement are amazing. I think they explain more of the Master's style, especially in the beginning of the film, but I could not help but admire them all. Overall, I enjoyed this film and I hope you do too. If you have a particular favorite film of the Master, I think this documentary would be a great place to start.

I have always found Bresson to be a little eccentric but this documentary really caught my interest. It was really funny at times, I had to rewind the first half a few times to catch all the scenes of Bresson's life that he's been talking about in interviews. As for the content, it was interesting and varied. It had interviews with the directors, actors, models, fashion designers and even the photographer who created the iconic photographs of Bresson. It also showed some behind the scenes footage of the interviews. It also talked about Bresson's ability to write poetry, and that it really changed his life. It even showed a few clips from his many movies, some of which were really good, but a few not so good. It had a few scenes that had Bresson on the phone, talking about his love for a woman, or in the middle of a shooting, he is talking to someone, and he's talking about the weather. I can't wait to get the video on DVD, I don't think I can describe it in words, it was a lot of fun watching. The only problem with this documentary was that it didn't really explain all of Bresson's films that well. I know he said he has never been a fan of French cinema, but this is the first time I've seen that. I don't know if Bresson was a French film critic but it seems like he was interested in the culture of French cinema, which I guess is a bit strange because the only reason I've seen a French film was Cesar Chavez. I'm sure he wasn't really much of a fan of classic French films either, but this is probably the only real issue with this film. But other than that, it was a really interesting documentary. It really made me want to learn more about Bresson and I think it might change the way I look at him.

A very interesting and accessible documentary, with plenty of fascinating interviews with the people involved. The subjects include George Lucas, director, writers, producer, and most of all, director of photography for the original Star Wars trilogy. George Lucas spoke about his film-making experience, and its importance in shaping his life, but also spoke about his wife, and their relationship. Carrie Fisher also spoke about her experience with the first two Star Wars films, and talked about how her character was influenced by her previous experience with the series. There were also some interesting stories from George Lucas and some of the writers, like Mark L. Lester. The only negative was that the narrator was very distracting, which I found annoying. There were also some issues with how the interviews were recorded, with some of the editing seeming to jump around and cut between different parts of the film. Still, it was a very interesting and intriguing documentary. The film is worth seeing. This was edited for length and clarity, but overall, it was a very good documentary.

In the 90s, "Brainless" became a cult classic, due to its controversial nature. That is, in a film where nothing is really explained, and the audience is left to wonder if it was all just a dream or hallucination, as their own questions and doubts are never answered. Now, two decades later, director Mitch Gedan offers an interview about his career and the process that led to this movie, telling stories about his life, both in film and behind the camera, from his childhood in New York City to his acting days as a cameraman in Hollywood, to his involvement in creating cult classics like "Seven Psychopaths", to his final days as a producer, and his decision to create his own "Godsend", the "Walking Dead" series, and his extremely controversial, yet very enjoyable, "Blue Velvet". Gedan's long career, as an independent director and producer, shows that he is a director who does not rely on a traditional script, as well as a film industry veteran who has done his own research, and has an affinity for obscure films. While "Brainless" has its share of controversy, it is also a film about relationships and love, and how different people react to the same situations. He offers an intimate and funny interview with his wife and son, who both talk candidly about the problems they had with their lives and their future. Gedan's approach to interviewing his subjects is different from other directors. He starts off with questions, and it is a slow and methodical process. He keeps it simple and less-intimidating, while at the same time, he allows people to tell their story. In "Brainless", the interviews are mainly done by Gedan himself, and are very interesting. He is the consummate interviewer, and shows an intimate knowledge about his subjects, and a thorough knowledge of the life of the people he interviewed. He uses his sense of humor in all his interviews, and even jokes about them, and the interviewees are fully comfortable with it. Gedan also likes to use the English language in his interviews, and it is easy to understand, and he also knows how to use the English subtitles to make the stories easier to follow. He asks questions about his life, and his relationships with his children and wife, his career, and his own family and past, and he listens very intently. There is no hesitation to the subjects, and the fact that Gedan does not have a rigid script, allows for more spontaneity in the questions, and more of a self-reflection and self-exploration, as he listens and answers. He does not have a set script, so it is possible to ask more questions of the subjects, and a more personal story can be told, which is the most important aspect of the film. "Brainless" is also a documentary, and that is what it is about. The interviews are short, but very fascinating. The most interesting story is of Gedan's son, who is starting to act, but cannot stop talking about his childhood and how he and his family reacted to the various changes he experienced. The family becomes the center of the film, and the son is the center of attention. He is the one who shows the most interest, and is the most engaging. All the interviews are really interesting, and the film does not disappoint with its style, making it a very enjoyable watch. "Brainless" is one of those films where you can never go wrong, and it will be interesting to see the next interview.

A beautifully done film that is very unusual, very atmospheric, and very "Hollywood" in it's basic kind of "twist." It is very rare that a documentary film is made that follows the same exact route as the actual film. The film itself is worth watching, especially if you have a strong interest in Lynch's work. The film is a very accurate summary of the whole mythology surrounding the man. But, as we all know, you have to be a fan of the film to get the full enjoyment of the film. This film is a cinematic masterpiece that should be seen by every Lynch fan.

This movie has become somewhat of a cult classic, even when it was made in 1975. Lynch himself has described the making of this film as a "no-brainer" and that was before the director got some famous people to appear in it. The film is mostly narrated by the two stars, who were given free reign on the movie, which means that it could have been very boring and slow, but somehow it was done so well, that it became interesting. As they were only given two weeks to make this movie, we are supposed to see their lives from the time they were born to the time they were actually famous. The subject matter of the movie is very personal and they felt the need to tell their stories, so they weren't concerned with the politics involved and were not concerned about the actual merits of their films, or the politics involved in the making of the films. I find that hard to believe that a movie like this would be so popular without getting famous people to sign on. It's like the two stars saying that they would only agree to appear in it if the people they were getting paid to do the making of it would also be included in it. The only problem with this is that I think they might have oversold the success of their films. The two stars are married now, but it was clear from the get-go that they weren't happy with their current lives. I think the biggest problem was that they were still trying to get back to a normal life after their success. They needed money for their wedding, so they rented a room on the high school campus and spent time making films. This was a mistake that did cost them money in the end, but it was definitely a sacrifice that they made to get their careers back on track. The movie is also interesting because they speak about the process of making a movie. They are sitting around talking about the different ways of making a movie. One is that they usually make a new movie every two or three years, and they come up with a script that they write, and then they actually shoot the film in the following month. This is because they don't know how long it will take to shoot a film, so they make it as short as possible, and try to shoot it as fast as possible. They also mention the process of filming a film. The actors have to decide what they want to say in the script, so the director tells them what the plot is and they come up with the script. After this is all done, the director goes to the set and goes through each shot, and they have to try to find the angles and the lighting for each shot so that the actors can read the script, and they get feedback from the actors that the scene is working for them, so they go back and edit it. The director also has to edit it once again, and he makes changes to it until it is a good film. They then usually have to shoot the film over a period of three to four days, and they shoot the film the same day it is released, so that they can make sure it is running on time. The most interesting part of the movie is when they talk about how they came up with the idea of taking the two star system, and getting people to sign on. One of them is talking about how they would have to take the stars from around the world, and they would take them to Hawaii and they would film it. They would bring the actors over, and they would film it, and they would get feedback from the actors that they got in on the film. They would shoot it over the next week or so, and then they would shoot it the next month, and the movie would be done. The only people they couldn't get to sign on was Harry Dean Stanton, who doesn't like the idea of having any of his actors come over. It is a great story

I watched this film about two months ago, but I have watched it again just now. This film is very similar to "Lynch" (the film that begins with a few seconds of the TV show "Mulholland Drive"), but with a very original story. "Lynch" is basically a film about a male friend of a female director who tried to seduce her. "The Art Life" has a very similar story. The story in both films is similar. They both have a group of people who are doing things and there is a main story of the people who are doing the things. In "The Art Life", there is an interview with a very famous painter who thinks he is doing a movie about his life. That's the only difference between these two films. If you have not seen "Lynch", then I suggest you go see it and watch the film "Lynch" with Mia Farrow. I give it a 7 out of 10, and the only reason why I give it a 7 is because I watched it with a female friend who gave it a 10.

This is definitely a good documentary. It explores the work of Mr. Lynch from the very beginning of his career. When he started doing the films in the 70's and started with Full Moon, he had to go through a lot of turmoil, but he was able to recover from it. His main career was on TV, and he was an actor, but his main career, was in directing. So, the two other films he made in the 80's, which were really great movies, were Heartbreak Ridge and The Elephant Man. So, this was the part of his career when he started to get serious, and start doing some serious work. The film was also interesting in that it was actually edited by Mr. Lynch. So, the two films had different cuts and different takes. So, the editing is very different in the two films. Also, the filmmaker is very honest. He talked about the drinking, and things he had to do to be able to make a film. He even talked about the costuming, and things he had to do to be able to do the films. But, the director also had the chance to talk about his own struggles with alcoholism, and mental illness, which he himself had suffered. This is a really good documentary, and it is definitely worth watching.
