Lynch has now returned to destroy our sanity with more Twin Peaks episodes. Let’s take this moment to return to a movie he made exactly 20 years ago: Lost Highway, a trippy Vertigo-drenched neo-noir featuring Henry Rollins, Richard Pryor, Robert Loggia, Bill Pullman, Marilyn Manson, and Gary Bussy; a movie Lynch said was inspired by OJ Simpson; a movie where a major star went on to commit a crime eerily similar to the one in the film.
Join me for this Sunday afternoon Olio where we will watch the entire movie, spoiler-free. Bring a friend and have this be their first time seeing this thing! Enjoy watching them freak out! Even if you have never seen this movie before I promise you will be able to follow the whole discussion; this sucker is 4 hours long for a reason. After the movie is over we will talk about it and you will walk out with a surprisingly strong grasp of what the hell just happened.
