Capital Celluloid - Day 74: Tuesday Mar 15, 2011

Lost Highway (Lynch,1997): Bethnal Green Workingmen's Club, 44 Pollard Row, E2 6NB, 7.45pm

The Close-Up film club have put together an excellent David Lynch season and following the director's debut Eraserhead and Blue Velvet in the last two weeks they follow it up with Lost Highway. Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire are to follow and you can find all the details of the season here.

Lost Highway is another superb example of Lynch's work: difficult to categorise; sometimes difficult to follow but very difficult to forget. There's a saxophonist, a young car mechanic, two mysterious women both played by Patricia Arquette and an unforgettable performance by Robert Blake as a Mystery Man in Black. Watch this. Go see.
