Writer-director David Lynch’s 1986 movie, the one that cemented his reputation as a boldly surreal and dreamy visionary, still emits the same aura of walking, waking nightmare. But 33 years later, a full third of a century, it’s amazing to watch again and see how youthful and dynamic the cast appears – especially young leads Kyle Maclachlan, Isabella Rossellini and Laura Dern. Dennis Hopper and Dean Stockwell nail the deviant vibe Lynch is so fond of exploring, and other cast members to note include future Twin Peaks player Jack Nance (who already had starred in Lynch’s Eraserhead) and, on screen at the piano, future Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti.
