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.
