Description: Special Project Programmer Andrew Crane celebrates his 20 years at the American Cinematheque with his favorite film picks.

In MULHOLLAND DR. (Universal, 147 min, written and directed by David Lynch), amnesia-suffering Rita (Laura Harring), who barely escapes murder on winding, hilly Mulholland Drive, makes her way down to Hollywood, where she sneaks into the apartment of bright-eyed aspiring actress Betty (Naomi Watts). When the two women encounter each other and try to piece together what happened to Rita, their descent into the freshly warped and hypnotically nightmarish Lynchian rabbit hole ensues. A lethal blue box, an unlucky director named Adam Kesher and a neon-glowing nightclub called Silencio are only the tip of the iceberg in this kinkily off-kilter neo-noir.

The feature will be preceded by:

“I Touch a Red Button Man,” (2011, 5 min). Lynch’s animated short film was made to accompany the Interpol song “Lights,” and is the first of several proposed collaborations between the band and the cult auteur.
