Why watch this film?
It is impossible to classify David Lynch's filmography into specific concepts and definitions, and it is extremely difficult to determine which of his films is the ideal starting point to dive into it. But this starting point could be 'Blue Velvet', perhaps the one that most concentrates his aesthetic and thematic interests in a more digestible, though no less strange and disturbing way. Just like 'Twin Peaks' would do years later, 'Blue Velvet' proposes a Dantesque journey to the dark depths of the American way of life, behind the facade of peaceful neighborhoods with white fences, colorful gardens and united families, a direct and bold look at all the dirt that lies beneath the roses.
The discovery of a severed human ear found in a field leads a young man on an investigation related to a beautiful, mysterious nightclub singer and a group of psychopathic criminals who have kidnapped her child.
