Blue Velvet

Sunday, September 20, 2009

This lazy Sunday afternoon, I watched this classic movie, Blue Velvet. It stars Kyle MacLachlan, Dennis Hopper, Isabella Rossillini, and Laura Dern. It involves an innocent guy, Jeffrey (played by Kyle), that gets mixed up in a dangerous mystery. He's so caught up in the suspense that he gets involved in the danger. Sandy, his friend & confidante (played by Laura), advises him to stay out of it but out of her curiousity as well, she urges him to stay safe yet doesn't go on all ends to stop him.
Apparently, it seems that Frank (played by Dennis) is a vicious, armed individual that kidnapped Dorothy's (played by Isabella) son & husband and rapes her for his own pleasure. He also has an addiction to inhaling helium, which seems to make him even more crazy.
Dorothy sings "Blue Velvet" at the Slow Club every night, which seems to be her only time of escape and moments of happiness. Yet it's ironic because Frank stuffs people's mouths with blue velvet before he kills them or rapes them.In the beginning, I didn't expect this movie to be as great as it turned out to be. It kept me glued to my seat, and just when you think you've figured out the mystery, something happens suddenly which totally throws you off and you're wanting to know more to try to solve it again. At the end of the film, everything just comes together perfectly. It was well deserved its numerous awards & nominations.
