Kicking off Brighton Scalarama in true Scalarama style is a late-night screening of David Lynch's surreal psychological thriller Lost Highway. This noir-influenced spine-chiller follows a jazz saxophonist (Bill Pullman) who, after a bizarre encounter at a party, is framed for the murder of his wife (Patricia Arquette). In prison, the man inexplicably transforms into a young mechanic and begins a new life for himself.
Featuring the acting debut of Marilyn Manson and piercing support performances from Robert Blake, Gary Busey and Richard Pryor, Lost Highway has become a cult favourite of Lynch fans. In the year that Twin Peaks has finally returned to our screens, join us as we revisit one of Lynch's most eerie and affecting works.
