Directed by David Lynch | 1986

With Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper, Laura Dern, Hope Lange

“There hasn't been an American studio film so rich, so formally controlled, so imaginatively cast and wonderfully acted, and so charged with its maker's psychosexual energy since Raging Bull.”
—J. Hoberman, The Village Voice

David Lynch cemented his reputation as an uncompromising visionary with Blue Velvet, one of the most controversial films of the 1980s, burrowing beneath the surface of idyllic suburban America to reveal a sinister underworld of sex and violence. After stumbling upon a severed human ear, a young college student (MacLachlan) becomes obsessed with investigating its origins and gets entangled with a nightclub chanteuse (Rossellini) and her psychopathic lover (Hopper). Director and frequent Rossellini collaborator Guy Maddin wrote in The Village Voice: “Nuns at Rossellini's old high school in Rome held a series of special masses for her redemption after the release of this film—still a hilarious, red-hot poker to the brain…”
