Blue Velvet
directed by David Lynch
Angelika Film Center
18 W. Houston St.

Velvety Blue

How many times has Quentin Tarantino watched this movie? The answer is evidently hidden in his masterful (by default) "Pulp Fiction". Blue Velvet transposed gothic bloodlust from cheap horror and son of Rambo movies into "Leave it to Beaver" and ten years later, much imitated, is still hilarious and thrilling. The good cop speaks and looks like Sam from "The Honeymooners" and Frank Booth seems truer than evil in a Dennis Hopper performance that one of his ex-wives called "Just another night at home with Dennis". No need to run to the video store, it plays occasionally at Angelika, midnight and weekends.

A fantastically elicit and insightful movie. A only wish Freud was still alive to apreciate it: "Baby wants to fuck"
