Blue Velvet

A classic of American cinema, Blue Velvet is quintessential Lynch. When a clean-cut young man discovers a severed human ear in the grass, his quest to solve the grisly mystery leads him into the terrifying underworld of his own town. From its opening, colour-saturated shot to the last, Lynch exposes the dark underbelly of wholesome small town America, a theme fulfilled in his TV masterpiece Twin Peaks.
