    Synopsis


    Blue Velvet
    Director David Lynch crafted this hallucinogenic mystery-thriller that probes beneath the cheerful surface of suburban America to discover sadomasochistic violence, corruption, drug abuse, crime and perversion. Kyle Maclachlan stars as Jeffrey Beaumont, a square-jawed young man who returns to his picture-perfect small town when his father suffers a stroke. Walking through a field near his home, Jeff discovers a severed human ear, which he immediately brings to the police. Their disinterest sparks Jeff's curiosity, and he is soon drawn into a dangerous drama that's being played out by a lounge singer, Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini) and the ether-addicted Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper). The sociopathic Booth has kidnapped Dorothy's young son and is using the child as a bargaining chip to repeatedly beat, humiliate and rape Dorothy. Though he's drawn to the virginal, wholesome Sandy Williams (Laura Dern), Jeff is also aroused by Dorothy and in trying to aid her, he discovers his dark side. As the film nears its conclusion, our hero learns that many more indivduals are tacitly involved with Frank, including a suave, lip-synching singer, Ben (Dean Stockwell), who is minding the kidnapped boy. Director Lynch explored many similar themes of the "disease" lying just under the surface of the small town, all-American façade in his later television series Twin Peaks (1990-91). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      David Lynch's Masterpiece

      Posted
      Jory

      A cult classic. I had the displeasure of meeting David Lynch at the viewing of his last film Inland Empire, which is one of the worst films I have ever seen. David Lynch is not someone you want to meet if you enjoy his films. Honestly, having been such a massive fan of David Lynch, after meeting him it made me rewatch his films. He tries to hard to be mysterious and after seeing how awful Inland Empire was, I lost all respect for him. I do enjoy this film for its flaws, I love the dark world of Lynch, don't get me wrong. I just can't believe how bad Inland Empire was.

      Anyone that's a fan of David Lynch or Twin Peaks will want this for their collection. The odd eeriness of the film is the proto-Twin Peaks & the deleted scenes show more weirdness than I though was possible.

      If ur here you might as well add this odd little gem to the collection. The HD transfer is bosshog. It's one of those weird discs that restarts after it ends not a bad thing just don't fall asleep.

      I quickly became a Lynch fan after seeing this movie. I can always go for his surreal approach to filmmaking but Blue Velvet has a perfect balance of stylistic elements. It's a cool yet freaky film.
