Left Field Cinema: Blue Velvet (USA: David Lynch, 1986)

American Masterpiece: Blue Velvet
Left Field Cinema

The first of a David Lynch double bill, this episode centering on his 1980's masterpiece and arguably his greatest film. Twisted homages and ironical referencing to the past works of the Hollywood mainstream, with a dark and mysterious but ultimately coherent story line.

I'll be listening soon - just wanted to comment that I love several Lynch movies - "Blue Velvet" was fantastic though I most enjoyed "Mulholland Drive" and "Lost Highway".

Of course, I enjoyed "Dune", too - so what do I know?

I think Dune is a really good film that was unfairly panned by critics that were destabilized by Lynch's take on SF.

Most of the critics complained that the film was confusing... really, it seems very straightforward to me :)
