Blackout, Teleplay by Barry Gifford: In 1936 a twenty year old woman and her twenty seven year old husband come to New York from Oklahoma to see a doctor in hopes of healing her ailing mind following the drowning of their son. Lynch does old Philco Playhouse style television as well as any of its older masters. It’s a shame they didn’t do it live. I’m sure Lynch would have relished the challenge of it.
3.5 stars for "tricks" and the always wonderful Harry Dean Stanton I guess zero stars for the Deborah Kara Unger one because i don't even remember it. One star, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. 5+ stars for "Blackout" which truly is one of the best things Lynch has ever filmed. Alicia Witt's performance is haunting and I love seeing Crispin Glover act kind of normal.
