Happy 40th Anniversary of Eraserhead's World Premiere in New York on September 28, 1977!

And 40 years later, it still packs as much punch per frame as ever!

What is Cinema? By David Lynch

Italian Giorgi Getiashili released a beautiful snippet on YouTube of David Lynch discussing the nearly magical nature of cinema and how to best experience the illusion.

Harry Dean Stanton R.I.P. (1926-2017)

The great actor Harry Dean Stanton joins the chorus of angels yesterday afternoon after passing away from natural causes on September 15, 2017 at age 91. Harry Dean was born on July 14, 1926 in Kentucky and grew up during the Great Depression when economic hardship was at its most difficult in the United States of America. His thin, bedraggled appearance feels born out of that era, providing a constant reminder of our nation's leanest years.
