It's a Strange World.
f you've never taken a trip into the mind of director David Lynch, this is the place to start. At once beautiful, horrifying, erotic and surreal, this 1986 controversial masterpiece is about the evils that can exist in even the most perfect of places. When college student Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) investigates a mystery in his small town, he unwittingly opens the door to an underworld of murder, sex, kidnapping and blackmail. Dennis Hopper gives one of the big screen's most unforgettable performances as Frank Booth, a twisted drug sniffing villain with (how does one put it delicately?) "mommy issues." Voted "one of the greatest films of all time" by Entertainment Weekly.

"Hypnotic and unsettling!  Los Angeles Times
"...a startling mixture of the heartfelt and the horrific...  Newsweek

Editor's Note
Director David Lynch follows up 1984's DUNE with this electrifyingly original thriller. After returning to his hometown of Lumberton, North Carolina, in order to visit his sick father, Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) discovers a severed human ear in a vacant field. He befriends Sandy Williams (Laura Dern), the daughter of the detective assigned to the case, and uses her information to investigate the situation himself. This leads Jeffrey to Dorothy Valence (Isabella Rossellini), a sexy nightclub singer whose involvement with a raving psychopath named Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper) begins to answer some important questions. Unfortunately, it also draws Jeffrey one step closer to Frank, a menacing figure who inhales from a nitrous-oxide tank and preaches the pleasures of drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. The film contains such a unique blend of comedy, drama, and suspense that the line between the three is blurred, making for an unsettling yet highly invigorating viewing experience. Lynch manages to create a world onscreen that is superficially normal but tinted with a weirdness that is all his own. It is this twisting of reality that makes BLUE VELVET an oddly familiar yet completely unique motion picture, featuring an unforgettable performance by Dennis Hopper.

Expert Review Blue Velvet - 25th Anniversary Edition - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: El Bicho Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 1/12/2012 7:28 PM
I was working as a movie theater usher in Huntington Beach, California when David Lynch's Blue Velvet was released 25 years ago. No film during my 18-month tenure matched the intense reaction it generated in viewers. Not Full Metal Jacket, not Top Gun, not Leonard: Part 6. Seemed like at least one couple walked out of every Blue Velvet showing, most times before it ended, angered by what they witnessed and demanded their money back. Apparently these folks only knew his Oscar-nominated The Elephant Man and hadn't caught a midnight screening of Eraserhead....read the full review

Plot Summary
A deeply shocking and insidiously funny film, David Lynch's offbeat vision uncovers the nasty underside of small-town America. When a young man finds a human ear in a field, he embarks on an investigation into the dark world of a dangerous psychopath, which leads him to a beautiful nightclub singer. Truly an auteur film, if there is such a thing, BLUE VELVET is a bizarre, disturbing work that stands as one of the best films of the 1980s.

Rolling Stone
"...A visionary masterpiece..." 12/14/1989 p.23

New York Times
"...An instant cult classic....It confirms [Lynch's] stature as an innovator, a superb technician, and someone best not encountered in a dark alley..." 09/19/1986 p.C12

New York Times
Included in the New York Times "10 BEST FILMS OF 1986" 12/28/1986 p.II,19

Los Angeles Times
"...The most brilliantly disturbing film ever to have its roots in small-town American life. Shocking, visionary, rapturously controlled, its images of innocence and a dark, bruising sexuality drop straight into our unconscious where they rest like depth charges..." 09/19/1986 p.C1

Entertainment Weekly
"...The movie hasn't lost its power to shock as well as mesmerize..." 06/07/2002 p.53
