When a college student discovers a severed human ear lying in a field, he is launched on an unexpected investigation in David Lynch’s unforgettable and influential neo-noir classic.

Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) is home from college when he makes a grisly discovery. Soon, the wannabe gumshoe and his fellow amateur sleuth, Sandy (Laura Dern) are drawn into the warped orbit of lounge singer Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini) and the unhinged thug Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper).

Equal parts shocking and compelling, Lynch’s exploration of the psyche of small-town America features intense performances and hauntingly powerful imagery.

“An intensely ‘80s movie with an intensely ‘40s noir template…still inventive, sexy and bizarre.” The Guardian

Inspired by the 50th anniversary restoration of Francis Ford Coppola’s neo-noir thriller The Conversation (at QFT from Sat 13 July), we are spending July looking at noir detectives, from classic noir’s police investigators to neo-noir’s common people turned amateur sleuths.
