"Let's fuck! I'll fuck anything that moves! Baby wants to fuck! Baby wants to fuck Blue Velvet!" Dennis Mother Fucking Hopper The only man on the planet who could pull something like this off. A perfect mix of dark comedy and damn right creepy.

One of the most profane movies I have ever seen. Dennis Hopper's character says the F-word more times than anyone I have ever seen. Sometimes he composes sentences where the majority of words are this word, or will just blurt it our repeatedly for no reason, like "Ok F---, what the f----, I said 'everybody f---'" The tale is slow but gripping, the stakes always feel high and it has a ring of desperation to it that really draws the viewer in.

I appreciate some of the creative elements in this film - particularly the soundtrack and visual cues - but it's too weird for me without having a meaning behind the weirdness. Dennis Hopper's character, though, is a purely memorable villain, for better or worse.

“She wore Blue Velvet”… with these inmortal lyrics and Bobby Vinton’s melody opens David Lynch’s 1986 neo-noir psychological thriller. The film follows Jeffrey (Kyle McLachlan) as he one day finds a severed human ear and takes it to the police, to the detective Williams (George Dickerson). The detective’s daughter, Sandy (Laura Dern) reaches out to Jeffrey and tells him details on the case, connecting it with a singer, Dorothy (Isabella Rossellini). Jeffrey and Sandy start surveiling Dorothy, which leads to Jeffrey witnessing from her closet how she is repeatedly abused by a mysterious and psychopathic man named Frank (Dennis Hopper). What follows is a dark and often bizarre thrill ride which stands among the director’s best works.

According to in interview with director David Lynch, this was a love story. And the whole voyeurism aspect of it was part of a recurring dream that he had, about sneaking into someones room and just, watching them. I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about this film. On the one hand, I applaud the creative aspect of it. I think Lynch took a lot of chances with this. But, I think a lot of films need some sort of doorway, some character that the average film goer can relate to/with. Sometimes that's just someone in a costume, like Batman, he's the hero, he's the person that we are supposed to identify with. Something like Pulp Fiction, the characters were just so engrossing, and really everyone was "bad." No one was "good, you couldn't help but be entertained by the sheer genius …

Beautiful, disturbing, suspenseful, hypnotic!
Wide eyed college student Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) returns to his hometown of Lumberton, North Carolina when his father falls ill of stroke. While walking home from the hospital, he discovers a severed decaying human ear in a vacant lot, and with the help of sweet-as-pie all-American girl, Sandy Williams (Laura Dern), the daughter of the town sheriff tracks that ear to the gloomy Lincoln Street apartment of a sultry, seductive singer Dorothy Vallens, who, as played by Isabella Rossellini, seems both terrified and turned on.
Jeffrey ends up drawn into Dorothy's bizarre world - a world where she is being repeatedly sexually abused by her husband and young child's kidnapper, Frank Booth, a nitrous oxide huffing sadist who has a …
