UK/Canada, 1990, Philip Ridley

The stunning visuals evoke Edward Hopper. With Viggo Mortensen. “[It] reminded me of Blue Velvet and the other works of David Lynch, but I think it’s better…It’s about nightmares, and I’m not easily going to forget it.” –Roger Ebert. “A gothic masterpiece.” –The Guardian.
