The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) is the largest and most highly-attended event of its kind (and, in our opinion, the coolest—screening everything from alluring art flicks to twisted sci-fi). During the 39th-annual fest, now through June 9, we’ll be sharing favorite films hand-picked for us by the SIFF team. Today, cult classic sci-fi by the director of Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet. Think of it as Star Wars’s troubled cousin.
Director: David Lynch
(Part of SIFF’s Tribute to Kyle MacLachlan)
