DAVID LYNCH VS. DAVID CRONENBERG

Not that it’s a contest, but MAYBE IT IS. With three days of double-features, two cinematic heavyweights go a few rounds to settle the matter of which Dave is your fave. That’s right: It’s David Lynch vs. David Cronenberg.

Co-presented by Amoeba Music!

ERASERHEAD vs. VIDEODROME


In this corner, a singularly coiffed young man in the midst of a major fatherhood freakout; and in this corner, a desperate slimeball TV exec consumed by graphic violence. Pauline Kael called the former “daringly irrational,” while Dave Kehr described the latter as “a kind of Kenneth Anger version of Star Wars.” (Whoa.)

DUNE vs. CRASH


Whether it’s Frank Herbert’s epic fantasy of interplanetary drug-war politics or J.G. Ballard’s industrial parable of car-wreck erotica, each of these is nothing if not a bold declaration of book-to-movie bravery. Do you like the light in Kyle MacLachlan’s eyes, or the darkness in James Spader’s?
