Now It's Dark: The Films of David Lynch | 35mm

After a five-year hiatus following the release of Fire Walk With Me, Lynch returned with Lost Highway, perhaps his most daring and disturbing work since Eraserhead.

LA jazz saxophonist (Bill Pullman) and his mysterious, powerfully alluring wife (Patricia Arquette), begin receiving cryptic, menacing surveillance tapes of their Hollywood home. As the anxiety within their marriage grows, the logic of time, space, and identity seem to slip away, splintering the narrative into a thrilling, schizophrenic ride down the darkest roads of the human psyche. Lynch's long-time music collaborator Angelo Badalamenti and Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor collaborated to create the soundtrack for this masterfully disorienting cult classic.
