MOTION PICTURESQUE: CINEMA AT ITS MOST BEAUTIFUL
Double Feature!
BLUE VELVET / ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS
BLUE VELVET
1986, De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, 120 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

Squeaky-clean suburbanite Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) gets a crash course in the dark side of life when he stumbles upon a severed ear in a field near his home. Before his amateur investigation is over he encounters kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, Isabella Rosellini as a tormented torch singer and Dennis Hopper as one of the scariest villains in film history. Director David Lynch combines Hitchcockian suspense, surrealist imagery and a Hardy Boys plot to create a one-of-a-kind Grimm's fairy tale for adults. Laura Dern and Dean Stockwell costar.


ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS
1955, Universal, 89 min, USA, Dir: Douglas Sirk

Jane Wyman, a lonely widow with two spoiled, almost grown children (William Reynolds, Gloria Talbot) as well as a circle of snobbish, upper-middle-class friends, suddenly finds herself falling in love with her gardener (Rock Hudson). Director Douglas Sirk examines the curious cultural barriers we set up for ourselves regarding love, skewering age and class differences in the process as well as championing fearless independence of the individual spirit - something that was not so common in the 1950s. One of the most subversive love stories of 20th-century cinema and a prime inspiration for Todd Haynes' acclaimed FAR FROM HEAVEN.
