About the Movie
If 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Kinkiness is its salient quality, but Blue Velvet has deadpan humor too, as well as a straight-arrow side that makes its eccentricity all the crazier. There's no mistaking the exhilarating fact that it's one of a kind.
Fresh: Lynch and his film will surely be reviled, but as an experiment in expanding cinema's dramatic and technical vocabulary, Blue Velvet demands respect.
Fresh: The modest proportions of the film are just right for the writer-director's desire to investigate the inexplicable demons that drive people to deviate from expected norms of behavior and thought.
Fresh: Shocking, visionary, rapturously controlled, its images of innocence and a dark, bruising sexuality drop straight into our unconscious where they rest like depth charges.
Do yourself a favor and see this movie. It's unlike anything you've ever seen before.
Vintage Lynch and perhaps his best film, this feature showcases the awesome acting talents of Dennis Hopper and Isabella Rossellini. Believe me you will remember this film for the rest of your life.
This movie I think is different but still a great movie
