We conducted a survey earlier this year and our members said they wanted more opportunities to gather and watch the best of queer cinema. Our solution is our new First Wednesday of the Month Queer Film Series at the Northwest Film Forum! Every first Wednesday of the month, we'll screen a film and host a discussion. For our first film of the series, Jen Kilchenmann, proud board member, selected MULHOLLAND DRIVE.
Here's what Jen had to say about why she chose this film:
From Sunset Boulevard to Hitchcock, I have always loved films about the movie industry. With Mulholland Drive, David Lynch brings his own spin as well as a darkness you can but admire. While there is a storyline about making a movie, what draws me most to Lynch's take is the female-led storyline that follows Betty (Naomi Watts) as she navigates the dichotomy that is Hollywood. Recently voted Best film since 2000, an accolade in film I can get behind 100%, Mulholland Drive will have you enraptured, entertained, and probably deeply confused. I am really excited to be able to launch Three Dollar Bill Cinema's Queer Screen program with this film for its artistic prowess, its pitch perfect acting, and a script that will keep you wondering if you really did get the whole thing. Oh, and yes, there is a pretty incredible lesbian love scene, if you weren't already sold.
Please join us this Wednesday, November 2nd, 7pm at the Northwest Film Forum. Tickets Required (Buy Here) and are free for members and $5 for not-yet-members. See you at the movies!
