Duran Duran: Unstaged Trailer
Directing your attention to Exhibit A, Duran Duran: Unstaged, the first feature David “Second Only to Scorsese” Lynch has signed since Inland Empire (2006). Unlike IE, which never opened in San Diego, DD:E will get at least one commercial showing.
Had I not been searching out a showtime at the Gaslamp, chances are news of David Lynch’s latest would not have hit my radar until after the fact.
Duran Duran: Unstaged
I know what you’re thinking: Duran Duran? They’re going to need to pass out nasal masks and cylindrical tanks filled with what Blue Velvet’s Frank Booth was inhaling in order to get through this. If David Lynch can make forge a masterwork out of an old guy taking a trip on a tractor, a concert doc about a crush band once worshipped by throngs of teenage girls should be a breeze.
Duran Duran: Unstaged screens one night only, Wednesday, September 10, at 7:30 pm. There are four screening venues to choose from: UltraStar’s Hazard Center and Poway 10 and Reading Cinemas’ Town Square and Gaslamp 15.
