Now It's Dark: The Films of David Lynch


SIFF Film Center (map) Seattle Center
Thurs-Sat. Through May 14

Recommended by Sean Nelson

Even if the Twin Peaks revival weren’t right around the corner, it would still be a perfect time to reimmerse yourself in the incomparable cinema of David Lynch. SIFF’s series begins as it should, in black and white, with the industrial symphony of Eraserhead and the redemptive nightmare of The Elephant Man. If you’re looking for a true escape from the unraveling world, no other filmmaker creates a more thorough or engaging alternative.

Eraserhead will play Friday, April 14, at 7 pm and Saturday, April 15 at 4 pm. The Elephant Man will screen on Saturday, April 15 at 7 pm and Sunday, April 16 at 4:30 pm. Lost Highway will screen at SIFF Cinema Egyptian on April 20 at 7 pm. Blue Velvet will play on Friday, April 21 at 7 pm and Saturday, April 22 at 4 pm. Dune will play on Friday, April 22 at 7 pm and Saturday, April 23 at 4 pm. Inland Empire will screen on Thursday, May 4 at 7 pm. David Lynch: The Art Life will play on Friday, May 5 at 5, 7, and 9 pm and Saturday May 6 at 7 pm. Mulholland Drive will play on Friday, May 12 and Saturday, May 13 at 7 pm and Sunday, May 14 at 3 pm.
