Cinematheque 31st Anniversary Weekend! David Lynch Rarities! Double Feature!

INDUSTRIAL SYMPHONY NO. 1: THE DREAM OF THE BROKENHEARTED & RABBITS

United States | 1990/2002 | David Lynch

INDUSTRIAL SYMPHONY NO. 1: THE DREAM OF THE BROKENHEARTED & RABBITS

Two little-known works by David Lynch, neither made for theatrical release. Industrial Symphony No. 1 is a film version of an avant-garde musical play by Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti; it constitutes something of a bridge between Wild at Heart and Twin Peaks. When a guy (Nicolas Cage) dumps his gal (Laura Dern), her shattered “dreamself” (Julee Cruise) sings a series of aching lovesongs. Sometimes she’s floating above a stage littered with junk; sometimes she’s backed up by dancers. Lyrical and haunting. With Michael J. Anderson. Rabbits is a four-episode adaptation of Lynch’s eight-episode web series. Scott Coffey, Laura Elena Harring, Rebekah Del Rio, and Naomi Watts play humanoid rabbits in an ominous living room setting. As it pours rain outside, they deliver non-sequitur dialogue and occasionally sing, while an eerie laugh track and applause from an unseen audience heighten the atmosphere of anxiety and menace. Rabbits may be the strangest thing Lynch has ever done; some of the footage was used in his 2006 feature Inland Empire. DVD. Total 93 min.

Screening courtesy of ABSURDA/Asymmetrical Productions.
