Starting in 2007, filmmaker David Lynch hit the road in support of his David Lynch Foundation, whose goals include the construction of "peace universities" around the world, where focused meditation is hoped to bring an end to global war and suffering. The Foundation has garnered plenty of attention, much of it dismissive; Meditation, Creativity, Peace lets viewers judge for themselves whether the filmmaker's quest merits the mockery. The documentary will surely interest Lynch's most devoted fans, whose number is not trivial, and is an intriguing present-day look at a practice whose popularity peaked when the Beatles discovered it.
