David Lynch’ dark, unsettling work has long held a special place in the hearts of cinephiles and outsiders. From the curvy roads of Hollywood to the eerie small towns of Washington State, he has an unmatched ability to build a beautifully terrifying portrait of the evil underbellies of life
This May, Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn celebrates his oeuvre with Late Night Lynch. Every Friday and Saturday throughout the month, they’ll host a different midnight screening of a classic Lynch title; indeed, nearly all will be screened in 35mm for full effect. The weekend of May 18 also coincides with Lynch’s Festival of Disruption at Brooklyn Steel.
Kicking it off is Blue Velvet, in which a student discovers a sexually depraved subculture; next is Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, the prequel to the cult series that follows the last week of Laura Palmer’s life; the following weekend is Lost Highway, the story of a jazz musician’s descent into madness; and wrapping it up is Eraserhead, in which a man experiences a living nightmare after the birth of his deformed child.
