30th Anniversary! New DCP Restoration!
David Lynch’s sensual mystery thriller about strange happenings in a small all-American town.
There’s something going on behind the white picket fences of Lumberton, North Carolina. And after stumbling upon a severed human ear in a field, mystery-loving college student Jeffrey Beaumont is determined to find out what. Teaming up with the daughter of a local police detective, Jeffrey’s investigation leads him into a strange world of sensuality and violence, with the intrigue of the missing ear seemingly stemming from the relationship between a troubled nightclub singer and a sociopathic sadomasochist.
One powerful, mesmerizing thriller, a masterful exercise in controlling an audience’s attention.
