    My body was present for a screening that was apparently the West Coast premiere?? Ticket was free and the Los Feliz Theater was super nice. The trailers Beyond Fest programmed were fucking outstanding (Cruising, The Beyond and The Devil’s Rain were my highlights.

    was pretty sure that I’d definitively made my mind up on this one but it kind of won me over on this rewatch. Still doesn’t touch my favorite of Lynch’s work but when it’s working for me, it’s working! Idk movies are fun, y’all.

    Followed by a Q&A with Mary Sweeney!! Fascinating to hear about working with Lynch during the post process
