ERASERHEAD
1977, Janus Films, 89 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

Filmmaker and artist David Lynch burst on the scene in the late ’70s with this disturbing avant-garde masterpiece. Put-upon Everyman Henry (Jack Nance) – he with the Brillo hairdo – shambles resignedly through a dark, industrial urban landscape. When he joins Mary X (Charlotte Stewart) in a nightmare parody of working-class connubial bliss, and she subsequently gives birth to their mutant calf child, we realize there is no return ticket from this descent down the rabbit hole. “May be the greatest debut by an American director after CITIZEN KANE.” - Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid; “Nerds in space. Mutant babies. Domestic derangement. Radiator ladies. Inexplicable seizures. Enigmatic orifices. Weird routines. The hardcore bizarre and ineffably beautiful. … Awesome. … One must also hear it … the soundscape of ERASERHEAD opened a vast new dimension.” - Nathan Lee, The Village Voice.


30th Anniversary!

RAISING ARIZONA
1987, 20th Century Fox, 94 min, USA, Dir: Joel Coen

This staggeringly hilarious chronicle of the romance between inept bad boy Nicolas Cage and straight-arrow cop Holly Hunter was an unexpected follow up to the Coen brothers’ chilling BLOOD SIMPLE. The kidnap scheme that follows when the loving couple learn they can’t conceive kids is guaranteed to provoke more laughs per minute than any American comedy since the heyday of 1930s screwball cinema. With John Goodman and William Forsythe.
