01.21.07Netflix A doc about frequent David Lynch actor Jack Nance and how he was eccentric and alcoholic and now dead. I don't mean to sound crass or anything but this was pretty boring. Sorry, Jack. I liked you as an actor and you will live forever as Eraserhead but tales of you getting drunk and acting crazy are awfully familiar. I'm sure the people who knew him like that this movie exists but for the rest of us... well maybe that's a bit too harsh. As a movie about this guy's life it was the story of his life... It's just not a movie that gives you more than you expect going into it.

A special feature on the disc is a 20 minute segment about how Jack's death might've been murder, all based on Twin Peaks actress Kimmy Johnson (the sheriff's receptionist) having a dream where Jack told her he was killed by someone. In there, they interview the homicide detective who worked his case and he was great. He has this eye patch and is wearing this big hat and talks about how all the people I've just spent 90 minutes listening to are weirdos and he didn't like them. Then it has footage of Kimmy going to a psychic and the psychic channeling Jack Nance and him saying he's touched that they care about him but he wasn't murdered. That 20 minute bit was way better than the film itself.
