Blue Velvet

Blue Velvet

Synopsis

After the multi-Oscar nominated The Elephant Man and the critically reviled Dune, Lynch directed Blue Velvet, his signature film. Walking home from visiting his father in hospital, Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) discovers a dismembered human ear. Investigating, he follows the movements of a cabaret singer (Isabella Rossellini) and psychopathic criminal Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper). The film reignited Hopper's career and marks the first collaboration between Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti.
