1986. USA. Dir: David Lynch. With Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini. 120 min.
A college student’s discovery of a severed ear leads to a despairing nightclub singer, a nitrous-huffing psychopath, and one suave pimp with a fondness for Roy Orbison. Lynch’s subversively surreal spin on suburban life takes you on a funny and frightening plunge down the American rabbit hole. Be a good neighbor at your own peril.
Isabella Rossellini’s cape from the film will be on display in the Center for Film Studies before, after, and during the screening.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
