|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Terminally weird, though flamboyantly original film about a young man's involvement in a small-town mystery involving a kinky nightclub singer, a sadistic kidnapper/drug dealer, and other swell folks. A highly individual look at the bizarre elements just behind the facade of a picture-perfect American town. Too audacious to be easily dismissed, but too strange to be easily enjoyed... yet this was one of the most critically praised movies of 1986! Lynch's use of widescreen will suffer on TV; the director also wrote this one. J-D-C Scope.
