United States | 1997 | David Lynch
David Lynch’s strange, surrealistic nightmare is a neo-noir mystery about an L.A. jazz saxophonist (Bill Pullman) who goes to jail for murdering his wife (Patricia Arquette)—something he doesn’t remember doing, though a mysterious videotape seems to implicate him. But in jail he’s a different person—literally—a mechanic (Balthazar Getty) with connections to a gangster (Robert Loggia) whose mistress (Arquette again) is the spitting image of the murdered wife! This sinister warm-up for the character doubles and doppelgangers in Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire co-stars Gary Busey, Robert Blake, Richard Pryor, and Jack Nance, with music by Trent Reznor.
