Following Eraserhead (1977), The Elephant Man (1980) and Dune (1984), this is the fourth feature film produced by David Lynch - one of the most paradigmatic producers in the History of Cinema - and is considered by many to be Lynch’s masterpiece, since it might be the one which reflects the filmmaker’s delusional imagination and unmistakable visual style in the closest and most lively way.

Blue Velvet proved to be an absolutely unprecedented surrealistic and eccentric experience for the 1986 public. Combining an extremely linear narrative with the creation of a magnetic atmosphere, highlighted by a fickle tone which alternates humour and innocence with scenes of raw sexuality and sordid violence, this movie reactions of both shock and fascination as well as heated discussions that have lasted until today.
