"July 3 I loved this movie. It was made by David Lynch, so I was expecting it to be bizarre and it was. Some parts of the movie were really messed up. Dennis Hopper did a great job in this one. He was really sick in this one. I thought this film was a great introduction to David Lynch since I had never watched any of his films before."

Ugliness and demeasure in cinema (119 movies items)

" The Uncanny means the arrival of the Other in our reality, an Other who were not supposed to be there. In Blue Velvet, Jeffrey discovers a new, enigmatic world, through the discovery of an enigmatic element in his banal, perfect, life : an ear. Psychoanalytic theories are often used to understand or analyze Lynch's cinema. For example, in Blue Velvet, we can link the closet sequence with the freudian concept of "primal scene". On this subject, one must read Todd McGowan, "The Impossible David"

"*re-watch* A phenomenal neo-noir, with great acting and writing, beautiful cinematography, and one of the best soundtracks to a film I've ever heard. "

Roger Ebert didn't like all the Classics (39 movies items)

" "Blue Velvet" contains scenes of such raw emotional energy that it's easy to understand why some critics have hailed it as a masterpiece. A film this painful and wounding has to be given special consideration. And yet those very scenes of stark sexual despair are the tipoff to what's wrong with the movie. They're so strong that they deserve to be in a movie that is sincere, honest and true. But "Blue Velvet" surrounds them with a story that's marred by sophomoric satire and cheap shots. T"

" Quote: I love Blue Velvet. Put that in there. Alright, this'll take forever if we talk about what I love about David Lynch. I love that guy. He's one of the people out there that I just can't get enough of. I just love everything. I love the way he does it. I love that at first you think it's weird. it's actually not weird at all. It makes total f---g sense to me. And you know what I love about it? It seems like it should be pretentious, but there's nothing pretentious about it. That story cre"

" David Lynch's look at seething violence beneath the facade of small-town '80s America was denounced for images of bizarre sexual degradation."

"What a disappointment."



I expected so much from this film only to realize how much it falls flat to my expectations. I was expecting more mind fuck, more puzzles, more surprises and more than above average quality but all that I found was something much more or less mediocre. The story was already cliché and so was the characterization. I got the idea he was going into this dark and spiteful decadent kitschy feel but all in all it just wasn’t enough to birth into that dark and spiteful decadent kitschy feel it aspired to be. It was just not that convincing enough for me. I have only seen a few of his films so far and that perhaps have contributed to my lack of understanding and perspective. Perhaps one day, I’ll learn to appreciate the understated “brilliance” this film claims to be but for no” read more

A good movie

“Considering it has been almost 20 years since I saw this classic, I guess it was time for a re-watch. I have to say I have a somewhat difficult relationship with David Lynch. I mean, I have seen all his movies (expect 'Inland Empire') and even though I admire his work and considered him an artist, I usually have a hard time enjoying his features and this movie is a perfect example. Indeed, as usual with Lynch, the beginning was an spellbinding and thrilling film noir which would have made Hitchcock proud. But then, again as usual with Lynch, he obviously doesn't care about the plot, obviously throws it through the window and what remains is a succession of weird and unsettling scenes. It is a pattern used really often by David Lynch and I always find it more frustrating than rewarding. Sti” read more

"DVD Pettymys Lynchiltä. Vaikka Blue Velvetissä on kireää tunnelmaa, kaunis värimaailma, hienoja kuvia ja musiikkikin sopii filmiin kuin löysä koiranpaska valkoiselle kashmirilaismatolle, on käsikirjoitus lynchiläisittäin aivan uskomattoman tavanomainen. Toki muutamat piristävät viivat vedetään kohdassa parissa, mutta silti tuntuu tuottajien mielipiteen painaneen aika paljon tämän tuotannon aikana. Epäloogisuuksia on mukana muutama (esim nopeasti viilenevä poikaystävä ja tyt"

"30.1 Kirjaston DVD Valitettavasti vasta toinen nähty Lynch ja kyllähän tämä on ylivoimaisesti parempi kuin Wild at Heart. Mainion mystistä menoa kaikinpuolin. Lynchin leffat taitavat olla suurimmaksi osaksi vaikeaselkoisia, mutta tässä kyllä pysyi koko ajan mukana. Hopperhan tässä leffassa ylivoimaisesti parhaimman suorituksen tekee. Leffan soundtrack myös asiallinen. Kerrassaan loistava pätkä. "
