David Lynch’s Lost Highway: Masculinity, Pornography, Psychoanalysis, Noir

Geoff Klock at Neuehouse Madison Sq.

Sun, Sep 16 at 1 p.m.   |   90 minutes

We will watch the entire movie, spoiler free in Neuehouse's gorgeous theater and you will walk out with a surprisingly strong grasp of what the hell just happened.

Lynch has now returned to destroy our sanity with more Twin Peaks episodes. Let’s take this moment to return to a movie he made exactly 20 years ago: Lost Highway, a trippy Vertigo-drenched neo-noir featuring Henry Rollins, Richard Pryor, Robert Loggia, Bill Pullman, Marilyn Manson, and Gary Bussy; a movie Lynch said was inspired by OJ Simpson; a movie where a major star went on to commit a crime eerily similar to the one in the film.

Join me for this Sunday afternoon Olio where we will watch the entire movie, spoiler-free. Bring a friend and have this be their first time seeing this thing! Enjoy watching them freak out! Even if you have never seen this movie before I promise you will be able to follow the whole discussion; this sucker is 4 hours long for a reason. After the movie is over we will talk about it and you will walk out with a surprisingly strong grasp of what the hell just happened.

What is Think Olio?


Think Olio is here to put the liberation back into the liberal arts.

Classically, the liberal arts, were the education considered essential for a free person to take an active part in civic life. To counter a humanities that has been institutionalized and dehumanized we infuse critical thinking, openness, playfulness, and compassion into our learning experience.
