Extraordinarily brilliant, but profoundly explicit and disturbing. Not for kids
Blue Velvet is a film that divides many people. On one side, you have the fans who hail it as a masterpiece, and a instant cul classic of surreal imagery and sexual domination. and, on the other side, you have the people who were as immeditately dumb-struck now as they were whent he film came into theaters in 1986, and shocked virtually everyone who watched it. Now, Blue Velvet has a very intricate plot, and I think what disurbed everyone so much is that there is such a thin line between sadistic sexual violence and good-natured small town life, and, whent he lineis finally crossed and the sexual depravity of the film is revealed in full, it is a briillant, entertaining and extremely ugly spectacle that just won't go away. Now, the basic begins of the plot are fairly widley known to most cineaphiles, but just in case for people who still aren't familiar with the plot, here is the first part of it: Jeffrey Beaumont has recently retunred to his home town after college, where he discovers that his father has had afatal heart attack and races home to dsicover that he will mostlikely be inn good care. SOund normal so far, right? Hey, this is David Lynch we're talking about, here! Anyways, so..on his way back from the hopistal, he finds a severed human ear in a field, and immediately alearts the local police chief about this. Blue Velvet is the klind of movie that weaves a pattern through a series a storylines, running through each other until they all crash down into each other during the climax, which may be shocking to almost any viewer who watches it, but David Lynch directs the film with a grand feel of clasic film noire, with the whole movie feeling like a bit of a old fashioned mystery, as much as a sadistic morality tale. But, that being said, this film barely squeeked by with a R Rating, and here is the following offensive content in the movuie that every parent should not about, and everything is pretty much as follows: There are several scenes of strong, graphic and very disturbing sexual content, which occasionaly involves both nudity and violence, with several shot's of full frontal nudity on both men and women, implied rape scenes, and even a main plot point about how a sexy night club singer is forced to perform sexual favors for a brutal, throughourly intimidating town thug named Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper, in easilly his greatest performance, ever), in seeral sceneas which will no dobt disturb pretty much everyone who watches the movie. also, there is strong graphic violence throughout the movie, as well, with several scenes of bloody, mangled bodies, dismembered body parts and several brutal beatings. And, finally, there is lot's of strong profanity throughout the movie, with about 58 uses of F-ck, but also with other words present as well, such as many uses of sh-t, a--, h-ll- b-tch, wh-re, d-mn, g-dd-mnit, p-ss-y and more. So, Blue Velvet definitely isn't for anyone, let alone children, but those who can stomach this kind of violence well no doubt be thoroughly fascinated and entertained by this disturbing little thriller.
