The David Lynch film named for sugary smash hit Bobby Vinton, not as easy as it seems, though on first glance, "Blue velvet" is is not quite a good compromise between the mystical Thriller and all of the author's work.

As any other David Lynch film, after the first viewing it is easy to find that style to the Director is more important than the plot, however, is an error of judgment. If "Blue velvet" is meaningless fluff about perverts, it is unlikely that of the critics would hold a different opinion. The fact that the film was awarded 17 awards and 11 nominations at various international film festivals, warms up to him a great deal of interest and makes you understand the causes of the triumph of the "Blue velvet".

David Lynch managed to catch the special a disturbing atmosphere, with success transferred to the films such as "twin Peaks", "Wild heart," "Highway in anywhere" and"Mulholland Drive". Snatched headlamps dividing line of the highway, mystic club, and, of course, tiny town — the abode of a terrible, pathological evil — all these well-known attributes of the later works of Lynch arose from "Blue velvet". This pattern — a fountain a kind of encyclopedia of stylistic techniques not times manifested in other films of the Director.

Outstanding cast: Isabella Rossellini (Dorothy), Kyle MacLachlan (Jeffrey), Dennis Hopper (Frank), Laura Dern (sandy) only has to browse. In the episodes of pleased with Jack nance, brad Dourif and Dean Stockwell, who performed the song "In Dreams" by Roy Orbison.

Young Jeffrey Boman, leaving at the time of study in College, returns to the benevolent provincial world of their childhood in order to visit old father, who was so out of place to have a stroke. Walking through the woods, the young man finds the Sunny glade a severed human ear. Passing the discovery of the police, Jeffrey not receive a response to the questions.

Of course, at goodwill with my own ears people do not throw — and Jeffrey, at the same time involve in finding the daughter of the local Sheriff — sandy, decides on its own in that would any was to find the owner of the lost body. Getting acquainted with the suburban underground — the perverts, the drug dealers and just bastards, our through and through positive character gets stuck in a bigger big trouble...

Not without help sandy our self-appointed detective, quickly attacks the trail. Further investigation confronts him with two highly unusual people: lovely Dorothy, a singer with sadomasochistic tendencies, and the twitchy villain Frank, to Express himself solely by the word fuck.

Despite the abundance of firm "linchevski abominations" and sexual perversion is beautifully shot film. The camera work, and in particular, large plans (from crawling under the ground beetles to a devilish smile Isabella Rossellini), just brilliant.

Lynch mocks well-bred young man, driven by a thirst for tart and dangerous feelings, turning his desire to help Dorothy in ridiculous. "Hit me!" — begs Dorothy. After completing the request, Jeffrey strike, but is it not resist, it beats the woman again and again... close-up... Oh, she happy! Than the Savior Jeffrey better villain Frank? "Now, in me infection" — saying with a quote from the movie.

The Director shows the entire human filling. Taking for his research of the most honest, the most respectable character, Lynch delves into his soul with laudable diligence of the pathologist. Finding the weakest point, except that without shouting "Eureka!" it proudly extracts the depths of the soul of Jeffrey on the screen of the evil that he searched each. No, Jeffrey is not a pervert, he like all happy ending is a confirmed. The film "Blue velvet" Lynch proves idyllic life carries a dark underside, and evil the people, no matter how looks normal and good they look.

Unscrewing the canons of the genre, the Director has shown himself to be a skilled stylist, with a sneer redraw the everyday reality. Bravo, Lynch!

This picture of the master of surrealism David Lynch in the time, made a lot of noise and furor. In our time, this film is not would such a strong effect, but in the 1980s it was the real provocation. The audience was shocked by the excessive candor and coldly greeted the release of the tapes, but critics were in awe and honored creation of the Lynch the title of one of the best thrillers and detectives in the history of world cinema. With this film began the creative Alliance Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti.

Stylistically, the tape goes back to the direction neonoir, but with certain changes. This aesthetic, erotic, melodramatic Thriller — the detective, with strong and mysterious intrigue. Walking through a small provincial town, a young man Jeffrey beaumont finds a human ear. Conducting its own investigation, the young man all stronger immersed in the secret world defect pathological passions. The author uses an unusual approach, dissecting the basic canons of the genre. Hence, the total rejection of the film with one hand and full admiration with other.

The picture deserves a deep psychological analysis. The number of possible characters and ulterior motives are just outrageous. In General for lovers of psychoanalysis is the product is suitable couldn't be better. David Lynch in its unique style, builds a tense atmosphere, full of secrets and mysteries. In the film traces the distinct overtures in the direction of the classic Noir films of the 1950s and of the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock. The author explores in a veiled form of the problem of the institution of the family, and also reveals the inner fears of the individual, the problem of morality and moral values.

Elements of surrealism in the picture so many, but something mystical and irrational in the narrative present. In fact, there appeared the first rudiments of the cult TV series "twin Peaks". It is a unique movie that is not suitable for all. If you fan of creative Director, it must watch. The rest should look at if you are not afraid of provocative story and controversial pathological scenes. Although to modern viewers it already do not seem so shocking.

Kyle MacLachlan derives from categories of actors and one Director. From Lynch he played his best role. Here it appears an ambiguous manner, a young man with non-ideal moral principles. In General you can say that agent Dale Cooper born in "Blue velvet". Dennis Hopper appeared in a sinister image of a psychopathic drug addict, killer. It hero, madman Frank, represents pure evil in the flesh. A very memorable role. Perhaps the best in career. Well and female roles are successfully performed by young Laura Dern Isabella Rossellini.

Blue velvet is very strange, provocative, original, aesthetic melodramatic Thriller — the detective, with elements of eroticism. The picture has caused my conflicting emotions and left a strange aftertaste. It is difficult to advise this creature, but if you looking for innovative and unusual film, it is suitable.

Just want to say that in this film, I was most impressed by the negative characters, and especially the character of Dennis hopper, in recent years, often watch films with his participation. So interesting character turned out and the hero of Dean Stockwell, a little strange, but interesting. Of course, he gave a little time in the movie, but that a short time I was impressed by its charisma. But I looked this film as a strange, because of David Lynch and actor Kyle MacLachlan (recently watched twin Peaks, it game me there impressed). Noticed that earlier, Lynch was often removed MacLaren. But returns to film.

The plot is impressive, the beginning is intriguing. A young guy arrives with the student home due to illness of father. Suddenly, going back home (or just walking) it detects... the human ear. It is not clear that it to do. It is reasonable to refer it to the police. So the character of MacLachlan and makes. But unfortunately, the local Sheriff is not wants to tell the main character about the progress of the case. But the boy curiously, and the Sheriff's daughter, the heroine of Laura Dern, helps him and tells some information.

Continuing the dynamic campaign of its own investigation of the hero of Magloclen, we just curious as to its progress. The middle of the film will impress the charismatic villains. As I have mentioned, the character of Dennis hopper, disgusting character. But the actor, I was terribly impressed. Remember even the moment he was influenced by the song Roya Orbison "In Dreams", and so how he mocked. poor character of Isabella Rossellini, from which clouded his mind and can't live without causing her pain. The character of MacLachlan turned out normal, so well as and Laura Dern. But the actors are good, I was particularly impressed with Dern in Wild at heart. Although I liked it combines the dancing scene in the bar. The only thing that not me impressed — this is the end. It is not bad, just some weak...

That's why don't know what I want to put either 7 or 8. The actors liked most of the film too. Perhaps in the near future, I will review this movie, and change my mind, and yet...
