David Lynch Retrospective
Academy Cinemas are looking back at the films of David Lynch - this surrealist filmmaker has produced a wealth of beautiful, challenging films that are best enjoyed on the big screen! His films are strange... but sublime!
We start with perhaps his most well-known film- MULHOLLAND DRIVE, which follows an aspiring actress who will soon be sucked into the seedy underworld of L.A.
One of Lynch's lesser-known films, THE STRAIGHT STORY, is a touching tribute to a small-town veteran who set out on a cross-country mission to visit his sick brother... riding only a tractor.
Lynch was always known for complex, experimental narrative structures, which can be enjoyed in LOST HIGHWAY, which follows two central storylines, both tied together by the talented Patricia Arquette!
Don't worry - even people who haven't seen the beloved TV series can still enjoy this cinematic prequel, following the last days of doomed schoolgirl Laura Palmer - a frightening odyssey through the strange town of Twin Peaks!
Laura Dern stars as an actress about to embark on a new film project, only to learn that the first attempt at production stalled after the stars were murdered... An experimental nightmare of a film!
Based on the real-life story of Joseph Merrick - the man with facial deformities who became a tragic Victorian Freakshow attraction! Lynch reveals the kind soul underneath.
Proving he really can do anything, Lynch even made a romantic comedy! WILD AT HEART follows a fugitive and his girlfriend on the run - the duo still have a lot to learn about each other!
