Portland’s NW Film Center is putting on a series of films from July through September highlighting the works of David Lynch and those that inspired him. In addition to all of his features, a bunch of his short films are being shown. Plus, Fellini’s La Strada, Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and Lolita, Hitchcock’s Rear Window and Vertigo, and more. It’s incredible.
I’m grateful that I’ll have the chance to see so many great films this summer. Seeing David Lynch’s films on the big screen is a whole new experience compared to a laptop or TV. I’ll finally get to see Inland Empire, Dune, The Elephant Man, and The Straight Story.
With these screenings and Twin Peaks: The Return, this is officially the Summer of David Lynch for me, and I couldn’t be happier.
