Retrospective | David Lynch
At the height of Reagan’s ‘Morning in America’, a vision of the future as a return to the 1950s, Lynch delivered Blue Velvet, a simultaneous love-letter to, and savage satire of suburban life in the 1980s. In Blue Velvet, two worlds co-exist; the suburban idyll of Lumberton, with its white picket-fences and cheerful neighbours, epitomised by Laura Dern’s Sandy; and the underworld where Frank Booth terrorises nightclub singer Dorothy Valens and holds court with a gaggle of sinister weirdos. When local kid Jeffrey Beaumont finds a severed ear on the ground, he crosses from the first world to the second. Will he ever get back? Does he even want to? Featuring career-defining performances from Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini and Dennis Hopper, Blue Velvet cemented Lynch’s reputation as an explorer of suburban psychogeography.
