A white picket fence. A fire truck. Roses. An all-American man mows his lawn…then clenches his chest. On the surface, everything in this tiny town is picture-perfect, even when it’s not. But what lies beneath?
When a college student returns to his hometown, he finds a severed ear and decides that finding the owner will take some sleuthing of Sherlock Holmes proportions. What he finds instead is a sensual woman and a group of evil misfits, and his world is changed forever.
David Lynch’s classic film set the standard for high-gloss surrealism and launched a raft of petty imitators. It also rejuvenated the career of Dennis Hopper, who turns in a career-redefining performance as Frank, who tears up the scenery with an oxygen mask and Pabst Blue Ribbon as his two weapons of choice. Now at 20 years old, BLUE VELVET stands the test of time: Lynch’s immaculate style and unique storytelling will still pack a wallop for even the most jaded viewers.
