Blue Velvet

BluRay Authority
18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: When Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) returns to his small hometown after his father has a sudden stroke, he finds that his former place of residence is not as simple and innocent as he had once thought. Lumberton may seem like any other small town in the country, but it holds some dark secrets beneath its picturesque appearance. Almost as soon as he arrives, Jeffrey discovers a severed human ear, which of course, makes him wonder what is going on.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: "I have your disease in me now." After a rollercoaster of an early career, from respected Oscar nominee to helmer of one of the most notorious flops in motion picture history, David Lynch finally established his voice as an auteur with 'Blue Velvet'. The controversial film remains his masterpiece, and one of the greatest movies of the 1980s… unless you're Roger Ebert, in which case it's a giant pile of crap.

  • Excerpt: A college boy named Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan of Twin Peaks and Dune) finds an ear in a field just outside a small town that hits every cliché of Americana. Though he turns the ear over to the local police, he can’t resist getting involved, and with the police chiefs daughter Sandy (played by Laura Dern of Jurassic Park and Wild At Heart) in tow as his accomplice he lets his inquisitiveness get the better of him.

Blue Velvet (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: It’s like I’m working back in time, because I’ve only seen David Lynch’s most recent films and not his earlier stuff ( Dune, I’ve seen), but when it comes to his work and the Blu-ray format – WE win! Blue Velvet is a terrific movie and looks and sounds great and features a pretty damn  good supplemental package. Even if you’re on the fence about getting this disc I’d say that it’s a pretty accessible little film. If you’re gonna do it then do it right with this Blu-ray.

Blue Velvet Blu-ray Review

8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Movie Content-wise, Blue Velvet is the cinematic equivalent of turning over a rock, knowing there's something unpleasant underneath but being unprepared for what exactly we'll find. Style-wise, it too is something we had never seen before. Following his father's stroke, young Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) leaves college to help out at home, but when he innocently stumbles upon a severed human ear, his overwhelming curiosity gets the better of him and he soon finds...

Blue Velvet Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
3 November 2011
  • Summary: Is there anyone more adept at deconstructing suburbia than David Lynch? Lynch exults in painting a picture perfect surface and then delving beneath that surface to reveal the ugly underbelly of supposed normalcy. While Eraserhead, Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet are probably the best examples of this proclivity, really there are elements of it in everything from Wild at Heart to Mulholland Drive to Lost Highway to Inland Empire to, yes, even arguably ( arguably ) Dune and The...

  • Conclusion: Packed with typically beautiful, lavish colour, and multi-referencing once again extending to old favourite The Wizard Of Oz, this is fairly unmissable.

  • Excerpt: När David Lynch gjorde ”Blue Velvet” hade han lagt en tuff tid bakom sig. ”Dune” var ett av 80-talets största fiaskon och som Lynch själv berättar i boken ”Lynch on Lynch” av Chris Rodley så hade han sin tidigare film ”Elefantmannen” att tacka för att han överhuvudtaget fanns kvar i filmbranschen, då den etablerat honom som filmskapare. Att dra sig upp ur gyttjan och ta sig i kragen var det som krävdes och Lynch gjorde detta med besked.
