Blue Velvet - Film review
I have to admit that "Blue Velvet" was my first Lynch film. Having watched his "Twin Peaks" television series however, I was vaguely familiar with his style and penchant for weirdness. The film did indeed live up to the 'wierd" stereotype.

In the end the only conclusion that I could draw was that Lynch is trying to show that even the pic ... I have to admit that "Blue Velvet" was my first Lynch film. ...
