It’s about how America is an idea, a surface, an indistinct image. It’s about the simple ways we can corrupt that image for personal gain. It’s perhaps Lynch’s most trenchant and political film.

In the autumn and winter of 2014-15, an exhibition of David Lynch’s early pieces, The Unified Field, was on display at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts… The exhibit featured sculpture, painting, and short films, all of which explored the same paradigms that are at the forefront of his films, specifically the looming and inescapable darkness in moments of light. Blue Velvet is the blackest expression of that darkness; it’s the raincloud over a sunny town in Middle America.

Blue Velvet has weathered the passage of time… possibly better than any Hollywood movie of its decade. The shock of the new fades by definition, but if it has hardly done so in the case of Blue Velvet, that may be because its tone remains forever elusive. To peruse the early reviews is to sense the emergence of the slipperiest of sensibilities, one that no one quite knew how to talk about. To encounter or revisit the film now, decades later, is to realize that we still don’t.

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    To me, this is his most overrated film : it's a competent 80's noir but it falls flat on lynchisms, it flerts with symbolism but the plot is pretty straight to the point : it leaves too litle for the viewer but to watch beautiful scenes in America, so dirty, so violent, so drenched into power & perversion : Lynch always delivers this dream inside dreams atmosphere, but in Blue Velvet I almost wished to wake up.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    Definitely not as cryptic as Lynch's most recent efforts, "Blue Velvet" is enjoyable but a bit overrated. I like the mix of a certain weirdness/innocence/camp-factor with the sexual exploitation/violence/drama (I mean, that's the charm of 'Twin Peaks'!), but it also made the film a bit uneven. The musical moments were great and seeing Sandy's face when she found out that Jeffrey and Dorothy had sex was priceless!

  • ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    This film came out in the 80s, a time when the market was flooded with coming of age teen flicks. Lynch took the tropes of those films and subverted them into a surreal neo-noir that is also perhaps the finest film about the male gaze. It's also Hitchcock level thriller that is drenched with references to the latter's work. Mulholland Dr. is a masterpiece, but I just slightly prefer this descent into Lynchville.

  • Zac Weber's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    Like many of Lynch's films, Blue Velvet feels like a stroll through a hallucination or dream. The suspense and bizarre sensuality are omnipresent, but Lynch uses music and humor to complicate the film's dark mood. Throw in the all-star cast, and this is undoubtedly a surrealist classic.

  • ramosbarajas's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    Lynch's style is so often mentioned, but it is really so awesome that one can do little but bask in the general effect. The performances are spot on, as is the dialogue and the screenplay. The one unclear point is Jeffrey's initial motivation to investigate Dorothy, but that, I feel, is supposed to be more instinctual. The prostitute dancing on the car has to be one of the best moments captured on film, though.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    Now it's dark...... it's a strange world... The cruel vicious darkness that lies underneath our picture perfect world and within ourselves is examined in Lynch's masterpiece. Blue Velvet is one of the all time strange delights with such off kilter performances by Hopper, Rossellini, Stockwell and more. First saw this in release on a first date. The date didn't last but the film certainly has with many viewings.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    The blu-ray transfer is fantastic; it's almost like seeing the film again for the first time. The disc also contains some 40 minutes of deleted scenes, previously considered lost. While it was interesting to watch the recovered footage, it wasn't difficult to see why these scenes were cut. Most of them merely illuminate Jeffrey's dreary homelife, though we do find out he was a bit of a voyeur even at school.

  • Patapon's rating of the film Blue Velvet

    I don't quite get the appeal of this film. Creepy at times, funny and a little strange but it certainly wasn't striking, surreal, beautiful, sexy, symbolic, remarkable or expressive...underwhelming is more like it.
