It's a strange world.
An engaging dark thriller about a young man, after discovering a human ear in a field, begins an investigation into a subculture of killers, addicts and sexual deviants.

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.

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.

Professional Reviews

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

Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide 7 of 10
Terminally weird, though flamboyantly original film about a young man's involvement in a small-town mystery involving a kinky nightclub singer, a sadistic kidnapper/drug dealer, and other swell folks. A highly individual look at the bizarre elements just behind the facade of a picture-perfect American town. Too audacious to be easily dismissed...one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 1986...
