DOUBLE FEATURE
MULHOLLAND DRIVE 7:00
Blonde Betty Elms (Naomi Watts) has only just arrived in Hollywood to become a movie star when she meets an enigmatic brunette with amnesia (Laura Harring). Meanwhile, as the two set off to solve the second woman’s identity, ?lmmaker Adam Kesher (Justin Theroux) runs into ominous trouble while casting his latest project. David Lynch’s seductive and scary vision of Los Angeles’s dream factory is one of the true masterpieces of the new millennium, a tale of love, jealousy, and revenge like no other. (2001, 146 min, 35mm)

+ L'IMPORTANT C'EST D'AIMER 4:50, 9:35
Five years before Possession, Polish emigré Andrzej Zulawski crafted this equally intense and dazzling study of amour fou. Romy Schneider (in a César-winning turn) stars as an aging Parisian actress slumming in seedy B films who falls in with photographer Fabio Testi and phases out cinéphile beau Jacques Dutronc in the process. Featuring Klaus Kinski as a cracked actor and music by Georges Delerue (echoing his score for Contempt), Zulawski’s lost masterpiece, a cult favorite on the Z Channel, finally comes to U.S. theaters in its original French-language version. –Quad Cinema (1975, with English subtitles, 109 min, DCP)
