  1. Anyone seen it? It was filmed it like 1986 or some jazz. I just watched it the other night with a friend of mine and was taken back by it's.. just.. weirdness. It's just fucking strange.

    Welcome to David Lynch....it's one of my all time favourite movies....I saw Blue Velvet and Mullholland Drive back to back at the theatre not so long ago - it was great seeing them on the big screen, really intense atmosphere.


    And Dennis Hopper rocks!!

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    It's one of my favorites, and is my favorite David Lynch film after Eraserhead. The movie starts off kind of slow and uneventul, then quickly builds once Dennis Hopper enters the picture.

  4. Very nice movie.


    One of the most shocking movies I had ever seen. Mullholland Drive, Twin Peaks (Series) and Lost Highway are very good too but my most favorite Lynch movie is "The Straight Story".

    I don't have much respect for the oscars, but without a doubt Dennis Hopper was robbed - one of the most genious pieces of acting I've ever seen.

    Its great. Lynch is one of my favorite directors. Dennis Hopper is amazing in this film. probably one of the best acting performances I've seen. Dean stockwell is great in the film as well.

    I made my roommates sit through it a little while ago. I thought it was alright, but they hated it. With a passion.

    I really enjoyed it, good thing, because I had a to write an analysis for my film studies class in university. Dennis Hooper's performance is brilliant, one of the most evil and psychotic characters I've ever seen on film.
     
  13. This is in my queue, I've heard such interesting things about Lynch's work.
     
  14. Blue Velvet is a fun movie. But then again I'm bias for David Lynch! haha. If you want really weird Lynch, check out this short films! I watched those in a film class and was thoroughly uncomfortable! The Alphabet is weird as hell.

    This was one of the only modern films we studied in my Film Theory class in college (that was 20 years ago, however; I'm sure that school's film theory course has others by now) and the self reflexivity (is that a word?) of itself even outshines Hopper's role after a few viewings. Not only a brilliant mind f*ck movie, but just pure genius altogether in its development of the art of storytelling and film making in particular. Watch it again with this train of thought in mind and you may find yourself even more blown away by it.

    And Dennis was really awesome. Truthfully, everyone's acting was great. But it was Lynch's handling of it that blows away many an 'art' film that takes itself too seriously. And i speak from seeing many 'art' films. That film course was in one of the only film schools who's MAIN focus was NON-NARRATIVE cinema. Lynch was always one of my favorites, and while some Eraserhead fans will disagree, I thought BV was his best.
