Dir. David Lynch. 1986, 120 mins. 35mm. With Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper, Dean Stockwell. This nightmarish vision of the suburban underbelly forever marked Lynch as America's premiere poet of the perverse. MacLachlan's straight-arrow kid finds himself drawn ever deeper into a mystery involving a severed human ear, a melancholy lounge singer (Rossellini), and a violent, gas-huffing maniac (Hopper, in a career-defining performance).
