David Lynch cemented his reputation as an uncompromising visionary with BLUE VELVET, one of the most controversial films of the 1980s, burrowing beneath the surface of idyllic suburban America to reveal a sinister underworld of sex and violence. After stumbling upon a severed human ear, a young college student (Kyle MacLachlan) becomes obsessed with investigating its origins and gets entangled with a nightclub chanteuse (Isabella Rossellini) and her psychopathic lover (Dennis Hopper). A masterfully eerie, depraved psychosexual nightmare and one of the greatest films of the 1980s.
