David Lynch Retrospective
BYO damn fine cup of coffee for this season of Lynch's seven features.
Prepare to step inside the mind of a cinematic genius. It's a big call, sure, but when it comes to David Lynch, it's true. No one makes movies or TV shows quite like the man who brought us Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and a little series called Twin Peaks, and we mean no one.
Don't just take our word for it — experience his movie marvels for yourself as part of Academy Cinemas' week-long season of his films. The venue is diving deep into his distinctive audiovisual catalogue, screening his Nicolas Cage-starring Palme d'Or winner, Wild at Heart, and his old-man-on-a-lawnmower tale, The Straight Story. And that's only the beginning of a very eclectic bunch of movies.
Also on the agenda is Lynch's moving and thoughtful The Elephant Man, the twisty thrills (and ace 90s soundtrack) of Lost Highway, and Inland Empire, aka the flick the director famously wanted Laura Dern to win an Oscar for so badly that he campaigned on Hollywood Boulevard with a live cow. And then there's the thing we've all been waiting for: no, not Twin Peaks the series, but the show's exceptional horror sequel/prequel Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me on the big screen. BYO damn fine cup of coffee.
