Double Feature makes two intimidating films by even more intimidating directors completely approachable. David Lynch and Lost Highway. Where you’ve heard Angelo Badalamenti. The return of Trent Reznor. Did David Lynch write The Perfect Drug? The look of Lost Highway. Focal point in the most shallow depth of all fields. Putting your camera in creepy places. Minimalistic home design and it’s impact on implied lighting. The 1950s. The tapes. Lens Whacking. Bear or No Bear film making. Driver down. Psycho. Alfred Hitchcock’s distrust of the police. The Hayes code. Toliet outrage. Playing clue. Do not tell your friends. Alfred Hitchcock thinks you’re a fucking dolt.
Lost Highway: 3:18 | Psycho: 28:57
