Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, the Film Center is thrilled to present a new 4K Restoration with a personal, theatrical-only introduction from director David Lynch, who supervised the restoration.
About the film:
A tormented jazz musician finds himself lost in an enigmatic story involving murder, surveillance, gangsters, doppelgangers, and an impossible transformation inside a prison cell.
“contains some of the most hauntingly prosaic moments of Lynch’s career… he’s one of our most pointedly realistic filmmakers. To understand the emotional realism in Lynch’s work is, in fact, to understand the emotional realism of poetry”
—Jeremiah Kipp for Slant Magazine
