The love that cineastes have for David Lynch's movies seems to grow in inverse proportion to his apparent interest in actually making another one. Some think he might have retired from the business altogether (his latest distraction from filmmaking? Recording a blues-inspired album). Until he decides otherwise, Lynch fans are left to contemplate the ten features and assorted TV projects he's made thus far.
On September 11th, Riverside Studios in Hammersmith will show four of his finest works, back to back, on David Lynch Film Day. There will also be a recorded interview with the man himself. The films and timings are:
2pm: The Elephant Man (1980)
5.30pm: Blue Velvet (1986)
8pm: Mulholland Dr. (2001)
There will also be a fourth film in the evening, details of which haven't been released yet. We're probably not alone in hoping it isn't Dune.
Disappointingly, Mulholland Drive will be a DVD screening; doesn't any cinema in the capital have a 35mm print of a film ranked third in the Guardian's list of greatest films of the 2000s to spare?
Tickets cost £10 per film, or £25 for a day ticket. More information at the Riverside Studios website.
