If you’ve never taken a trip into the mind of director David Lynch, this is the place to start. At once beautiful, horrifying, erotic and surreal, this 1986 controversial masterpiece is about the evils that can exist in even the most perfect of places. When college student Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) investigates a mystery in his small town, he unwittingly opens the door to an underworld of murder, sex, kidnapping and blackmail. Dennis Hopper gives one of the big screen’s most unforgettable performances as Frank Booth, a twisted drug sniffing villain with (how does one put it delicately?) “mommy issues.” Voted “one of the greatest films of all time” by Entertainment Weekly.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Not quite like any other thriller or erotic mystery you've ever seen.
Fresh: It's the only one of Lynch's works to marry his nightmarish concerns to a story that (very nearly) makes sense.
Fresh: David Lynch's mise en scene screams "Leave it to Beaver."
Do yourself a favor and see this movie. It's unlike anything you've ever seen before.
Vintage Lynch and perhaps his best film, this feature showcases the awesome acting talents of Dennis Hopper and Isabella Rossellini. Believe me you will remember this film for the rest of your life.
This was played late on TCM one friday when they feature all those twisted cult films. This is one messed up story. I sat there like I was watching a car crash n I couldn't look away. I was up till 3 am and it was worth it. It's unlike anything I've ever seen. Dennis Hopper is a crazy f***.
