When a shy adolescent (MacLachlan) finds a severed ear in an overgrown backlot and decides to investigate, he uncovers a bizarre underworld operating within his otherwise seemingly respectable small town. One of Lynch’s finest achievements, this highly imaginative blending of beauty and horror, innocence and evil has the vivid clarity of a nightmare and the mythic resonance of a fairy tale.
