This behind-the-scenes portrait of David Lynch, shot over the two years it took him to piece together Inland Empire (2006), is as skewed, prismatic, and free of fluff as the man himself. The rumor is that Lynch was directed by Lynch (with fake credits), but either way, it gives us a rare peek at what really goes on behind that golly-gee-willikers mask. We see him throwing tantrums on the set (''We're freezing our asses off!''), fussing over the details of his art with the hands-on devotion of a medieval craftsman, and winking at the daily performance that is ''David Lynch.''
