blue velvet on bluray

christopher mcquain at dvd talk praises lynch’s perhaps most satisfying film, if not his finest, out in well-vetted high def

It actually is on just that Freudian/mythological plane that Blue Velvet, like a fairy tale, operates. Even though its deeply conflicted, repressed subconscious material manifests itself–with its anachronistically un-modernized small town and strangely appropriate, evocative popular tunes from a bygone era–through a particularly American pop-cultural idiom, there is some permanent, primal structure here that underlies (and is, according to Lynch’s vision, an integral part of and foundation for) Lumberton’s impossibly sunny skies and happy, healthy families. But the film entirely earns and justifies its ambitious, mythological scope; there is not a moment of pretention in the entire unsettling, submerging experience.

ahem.

and reasonable priced to boot, especially at deep discount through sunday the 20th.
