JFD306: Blue Velvet, The Straight Story, Mulholland Drive
First up! Kyle MacLachlan and Laura Dern are innocent small town kids who uncover the sick and twisted underbelly of suburban American, epitomized by Dennis Hopper and his gang of drug-dealing, sexually-abusing thugs (including Jack Nance, Brad Dourif, and Dean Stockwell). Featuring a great performance from Isabella Rosalini and classic soundtrack tracks from Roy Orbison and Bobby Vinton, it's David Lynch's landmark 1986 neo-noir, Blue Velvet!
Up next! You may not have realized that David Lynch directed a heart-warming G-rated true-story family drama for Disney in 1999, but he sure did and it's definitely called The Straight Story. It stars Richard Farnsworth and Sissy Spacek. These are all true facts, we promise. But is it worth watching, or would we ride a lawn mower across state boundaries to escape it?
Finally! Mulholland Drive (1999)? That's where I was going!
All this plus witty banter between friends, off-color humor, our gateways to Lynchdom, secret 8mm tapes, Parker Bowman's curse against David Bowie, Skype Noise Strikes Back, VVitch Chats, dead armadillos, teenager Johnny Dingle, Nerd News & DVD Picks, continued lack of overt police involvement, sneezes, belches, gleeks and a whole lot more!
