Indisputable masterpiece

"See that clock on the wall? In five minutes you are not going to believe what I've told you."

For David Lynch, 1986's Blue Velvet was the motion picture which cemented his moviemaking credentials in a way that his prior efforts were unable to achieve. Such is the reputation of Lynch in the 21st Century that it's easy to forget that back in 1986 he was only predominantly recognised ... read more

A very bizarre thriller!

Blue Velvet is a story that is very bizarre indeed but a story that I think everybody would really like because of how dark the story is. It is a very disturbing film because an ear is found in a field. The ear is a very deep effect on not just the murder investigation but also the characters. It deeply affects their lives as well. The classic scene is definitely the scene where Jeffrey was going ... read more

A good movie

Since I saw this classic about 20 years ago, I guess it was time for a re-watch. First of all, I have to admit that I have a somewhat difficult relationship with David Lynch. I mean, by now, I have seen all his movies and even though I admire his work and considered him a genuine artist, I usually have a hard time to enjoy most of his features and this movie was a perfect example. Indeed, as usual... read more

A man returns to his home town after being away and discovers a severed human ear in a field. Not satisfied with the police's pace, he and the police detective's daughter carry out their own investigation. The object of his investigation turns out to be a beautiful and mysterious woman involved with a violent and perversely evil man.

" It was the film that really put David Lynch on the map and it was also the first true film that showed the world his dreamy but also disturbing nightmarish imagery. It is a taste of what would-be "Twin Peaks" as it happens to have setting in a small town where everything is seemingly perfect but every character seem to have secrets and wicked sexual preferences. It even has Kyle MacLachlan in the lead and other expected Lynch favorites. Dennis Hopper got a well-deserved return to fame as psycho"

"I'm a HUGE Mulholland Drive fan; I don't know what it is, but Lynch made one of film's most hauntingly atmospheric films with it. Outside of Eraserhead (and maybe Wild at Heart) I don't think he has made one other quality film. His films are goofy and self-aware. Blue Velvet is nothing more than a average thriller with some silly editing, an unconvincing and over-the-top performance from Drnnis Hopper and scenes inserted purely for shock value. Plus thematically it's so banal; the theme of subur"

"19.6, PC, rewatch ***½ --- ****½ Twin Peaksin uusintakierroksen innoittamana Blue Velvet. Hyvin paljon samoja piirteitähän näissä molemmissa Lynchin tuotoksissa on. Uusintakatselulla pääsin elokuvan tunnelmaan paremmin sisälle kuin muutama vuosi sitten, mikä johtuu varmaan siitä että ajankohtana oli tällä kertaa yö eikä suinkaan keskipäivä. Blue Velvetin maailma on hieno kontrasti idyllistä pikkukaupunkielämää ja outoa alamaailman touhua. Dennis Hopperin sekoilu on samaan"
