The series which you can’t afford to miss –

These films stir you from the occupancy of your space and pace, revolt you, repulse you and caressing they leave behind a poignant haunting memory, of the cinematic evolution. 

David Lynch’s “most experimental movie” is a sweet and simple fable with its slow pace and beautiful story. The Straight Story may be Lynch’s most conventional film, but it proves that he has great reach, and can work comfortably in different genres.

The story is very simple: an elderly man decides to travel 240-miles on his riding lawn mower to see his estranged brother, who has suffered a stroke and may not be around long enough to make peace with. This is a film both happy and sad, and it’s about as blissfully uncomplicated as movies get.
