The discovery of a severed human ear found in a field leads a young man on an investigation related to a beautiful, mysterious nightclub singer and a group of psychopathic criminals who have kidnapped her child.
We start off with a great interview with Kyle MacLachlan explaining how he did not know Lynch's work but found him "friendly" and "available". In fact, the documentary is just full of great interviews with all the key cast. And we learn the importance of Bob's Big Boy.
Dennis Hopper informs us that "I am Frank Booth", Laura Dern and Isabella Rosselini add their input. We get some classic clips of reviews, and Siskel trumps Ebert on this one -- I hope Ebert later realized he misjudged the film. And it was awesome how the producer had to start his own distribution company to get it released.
I know others have criticized the lack of Lynch in this, but I would say the archive footage says as much or more as he would twenty years later. What would have changed? Not much.
