David Lynch’s 1977 debut feature is an enduring cult sensation and a work of extraordinary craft and beauty. With its mesmerizing black-and-white photography by Frederick Elmes and Herbert Cardwell, evocative sound design, and enigmatic performance by Jack Nance, this visionary nocturnal odyssey continues to haunt American cinema. See what fatherhood to a grossly deformed child does to Henry Spencer (Jack Nance) as he’s left to care for the child amid a desolate industrial landscape and the horrific visions of his own mind.
