Squeaky-clean suburbanite Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) gets a crash course in the dark side of life when he stumbles upon a severed ear in a field near his home. Before his amateur investigation is over he encounters kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, Isabella Rossellini as a tormented torch singer and Dennis Hopper as one of the scariest villains in film history. Director David Lynch combines Hitchcockian suspense, surrealist imagery and a Hardy Boys plot to create a one-of-a-kind Grimm’s fairy tale for adults. Laura Dern and Dean Stockwell costar.
Screening in conjunction with Alexandre O. Philippe’s documentary LYNCH/OZ, The Wizard of Oz (35mm) and a number of Lynch’s most haunting films as part of this Summer’s You’re Not In Kansas Anymore series.
