BOWFINGER
1999, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: Frank Oz

Muppet master Frank Oz teams Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy in this hilarious look at movie-biz bottom-feeders. Bobby Bowfinger (Martin) is one of those, a wannabe producer convinced his sci-fi script would be a smash if only famed actor Kit Ramsey (Murphy) was in it. The solution to his problem: Shoot the film around the action star without his knowledge. With Heather Graham.


DRUGSTORE COWBOY
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 102 min, USA, Dir: Gus Van Sant

Devilishly charming Matt Dillon is the head honcho of a quartet of ne’er-do-well addicts (the superb Kelly Lynch, James LeGros and Heather Graham round out the foursome) who support their habits by robbing drugstores in the mid-1970s Northwest. Director Gus Van Sant expertly shifts his matter-of-fact tone from humorous to gut-wrenching, proving a potent force to be reckoned with in his first major film. The picture that made critics stand up and really take notice of Matt Dillon’s multi-faceted talent. With James Remar as Dillon’s cop nemesis and William Burroughs as a junkie ex-priest.


TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME
1992, Warner Bros., 135 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

In this prequel to the acclaimed television series TWIN PEAKS, David Lynch investigates the final days of the ill-fated Laura Palmer. In typical Lynchian fashion, mysteries beget more mysteries, and the dark side of the human condition coexists with moments of profound romanticism and visual poetry. An all-star cast includes Lynch regulars Kyle MacLachlan, Ray Wise and Harry Dean Stanton as well as Kiefer Sutherland, Heather Graham and Moira Kelly.
