I watched this with a friend who had never seen it. I am starting to see a sort of structure in it more clearly, all the doubles and repititions, which is something the unconscious picks up before you become totally aware of it. The great directors know this. I have never seen the need of analyzing Lynch's movies to death though. Still a masterpiece and perhaps his best film.
Even if this isn't David Lynch's greatest masterpiece, it's probably the one that feels most complete and the one that traces future works. It combines idyllic setting with disturbing overtones, until they reach a level of dream's logic that can easily escape into a nightmare. And the meaning itself is diminished by the perfected use of visuals and music that put seductive and sinister atmosphere into the spotlight.
A taste of what would-be "Twin Peaks" as this film happens to be set in a small town where everything is seemingly perfect but every character seem to have secrets and wicked sexual preferences. It even has Kyle MacLachlan in the lead role. I love the song "Blue Velvet" in it's original form but after listening to Isabella Rossellini I would hear her sing it all day to me.
