This season’s classic film comes courtesy of cult director par excellence, David Lynch. A nightmarish tale of dark forces and unspeakable horrors hidden just beneath the surface of “normal” society, “Blue Velvet”, with its sado-masochism and disturbing erotic charge, has lost none of its power to shock. Although murder and depravity are subjects not new to the cinema, Lynch, by force of his fiercely intense imagination, turns “Blue Velvet” into a film like no other, highly stylised and rich in surreal detail, boasting immaculate photography and a wonderfully haunting score by Angelo Badalamenti.
