What would you do if, while home on a college vacation, you found a severed ear in a field? Would you, to find its origin, embark on a terrifying journey of discovery through a world of crime and depravity that lurked right beneath the idyllic surface of your community? If so, you'd have a lot in common with Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle Maclachlan), the protagonist of "Blue Velvet."
"Blue Velvet" is one of Lynch's best and the direct predecessor of his and Mark Frost's later network television series, "Twin Peaks" (which is also available at Jet). Dennis Hopper puts in a landmark performance as the maniacal, drug-huffing Frank Booth, and Isabella Rossellini shines as the brutally vulnerable lounge singer, Dorothy Vallens. Through romance, perversity, and violence, the characters are transformed and liberated, and Lumberton's secrets come to light -- to those who have sought them. A phenomenal film, a complete must-see!
