KEY OBSESSIONS: FAME/GLAMOUR/LOVE
"It is an explosively sexy love story, rocket-fuelled with vanity and cruelty.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
"It's a stunning starring debut, one that should decisively put Watts on the Hollywood and international map.”- Todd McCarthy, Variety
Topping the BBC’s 2016 ‘greatest films' culture poll, MULHOLLAND DRIVE is widely considered director David Lynch’s 21st Century masterpiece. A surreal möbius strip tale of obsessive desire for fame, love, and Hollywood glamour that featured a breakout performance from Naomi Watts, this unique drama earned David Lynch an Oscar nomination for best director. After a car wreck on the winding Mulholland Drive renders a woman amnesiac, she and a perky Hollywood-hopeful search for clues and answers across Los Angeles in a twisting venture beyond dreams and reality.
Deptford Cinema’s CINEMATIC OBSESSIONS Season has been made possible with support from Film Hub Midlands through funds from the National Lottery. Film Hub Midlands supports people to watch, show, and make films in the Midlands. The season is part of the nationwide Film Feels campaign; a curated campaign launching in summer 2019 across the UK, designed to celebrate film's unique ability to transport us, to illuminate ideas, and to spark a conversation. See more at filmfeels.co.uk.
Those of us who are obsessive about cinema know full well that the medium allows us to delve into our deepest desires and obsessions; the joy and community to be found in pursuing your passion, as well as the cautionary tales that obsessive behaviour can bring. This year the nationwide Film Feels campaign explores cinematic obsessions- from auteurs to oddballs, imitation to identity theft, Stalkers to Stans, this theme offers a rich feast of genres, icons and subtext for audiences to sink their teeth into.
