Lynch-Mania Coming to Sixth Ave.

Directing traffic: IFC Center tributee David Lynch in the documentary Lynch (Photo: Absurda)

By S.T. VanAirsdale

A tip just telegraphed through the pallid cinder block walls of Reeler HQ indicates that the cult of David Lynch will resume its place this fall at IFC Center. Nearly a year after opening the filmmaker's self-distributed Inland Empire to a box-office windfall, the theater plans a one-week engagement of the new behind-the-scenes documentary Lynch starting Oct. 26 followed by a week-long run of the newly-restored Eraserhead starting Dec. 7. (We hear it's a new print from the same digital restoration screened earlier this year at MoMA; "Years of VHS bootlegs couldn't do justice to its grainy detail or occasional low-contrast grayscales," Aaron Hillis wrote in his Reeler review, "and although Lynch has put much effort into his remastered DVD, the film demands big-screen immersion -- you'll be hypnotized by eraser dust swimming through light the way Lynch intended.")

This is in addition to the theater's ongoing midnight retrospective of Lynch films, featuring Wild at Heart (Oct. 12-13), Lost Highway (Nov. 2-3), Mulholland Drive (Nov. 16-17) and Inland Empire (Nov. 23-24). (You just missed Blue Velvet last weekend -- sorry about that.) Naturally one would expect a Lynch appearance somewhere along the line; you'll know as soon as we know.
