My fingers are still crossed for a cut of Fire Walk With Me that includes the missing scenes. This gives me hope.

It will be interesting to see what is restored to Blue Velvet.

From what Lynch said in the interview, I don't have the impression that the deleted scenes will be "restored" to the film.

If I had to guess, I'd bet they'll be separate deleted scenes.

I'll bet you are right. David Lynch had final cut on Blue Velvet so the theatrical version is just as he wanted it.

I read his first cut was somewhere around four hours long so there should be plenty of material and subplots for an interesting Blu-ray extra.

Awesome! I'll be all over this.

They need to put out the rest of his catalog too. Especially Wild at Heart & Lost Highway. I'm sure they will, eventually.

Lynch has had final cut on all of his movies from Blue Velvet forward. Thus far, he's been resistant to the notion of adding footage back into his older movies. But, considering his artistic decline in recent years, it's hard to say what he'll choose to do now.

What do you mean by artistic decline? He hasn't been changing anything else, has he?

If you read that interview segment re: the BLUE VELVET deleted scenes, you'll see that Mr. Lynch never mentions "adding footage back". Rather, he mentions that some of the scenes themselves on their own are interesting. I think it's pretty clear his intention is to present them as deleted scenes on their own.

Also, I respectably disagree that there has been any "artistic decline" in Mr. Lynch's filmmaking output.

PFFT. Inland Empire is one of the most wonderful film experiences I have ever had. Anybody throwing that film away as nothing short of great I don't even want to hear their opinions on film and that is pretty much that.

Empire is quite easily Lynch's most groundbreaking film since Eraserhead and the full culmination of his desire to project our conscious and unconscious lives on screen that started to take absolute direction with Mulholland Drive. Taking the fact of the camera changes and the script changes alone it's eerie to think the film turned out as great as it did. Any other mode of construction would have ruined the film. The newfound lease of creativity without the load of film crews basically put Lynch into his best kind of mode in making film. He always seemed more hampered by these things in parts of his other films and at this point I doubt he would go back. He's probably waiting for technology to catch up if anything before he dives back into 'film'.

I am not sure anybody but a feeble minded fool would say anything like IE is bad movie outright. Blue Velvet doesn't hold near the love I have for films such as even The Straight Story. Blue Velvet is easily his most overrated film. I like it but have never quite understood the reasoning behind it's AAA status over pretty much everything else on his menu.

I get that people have different opinions on Lynch but in decline? Really? Like the myriad reviews and opinions on every film and their creator I don't understand the people with these inane comments. In decline in your opinion would be the better statement. Without any real tangible thoughts beyond the ridiculous statement it's pretty hard to take seriously.

I love how people who probably are not artists themselves in any way love to throw this stuff around like it's some sort of innate truth. Art is not something that is easy to create. In a society that pretty much loves indulging in anything but true artistic vision I think we should be thankful people like this even make movies anymore.

Lol. I don't understand why because you didn't state anything beyond a smiley wink and the inference? that you don't like me responding to absurd comments for whatever strange reason? I replied with a few paragraphs to what I consider a quite ridiculous opinion of Lynch. That is all.

I think his point was that the 'value' of your comments was doing an excellent job of speaking for itself.

I don't know... maybe if you could be a little more specific, we could investigate.

I think he's just making a snide remark about Mulholland Drive, not actually theorizing on changes made to Blue Velvet.

While I enjoy most of Lynch's work, I believe his ambiguity is too often mistaken as genius. Such is the case of Blue Velvet, never understood why it's such a big deal to some.

With Blue Velvet, I think you have to put the film into the context of when it was released.
At the time(1986), it was a shocking, dark and explicit film.
Watching it now, not so much although it still does have its moments.
Lynch was comparing the wholesome normal society to the dark underbelly of society across the tracks in Lumberton.
Sandy and Jeffrey vs Frank, Dorothy and the gang.
Jeffery found that ear and his path into the world of Frank Booth.
Originally, Frank was snorting helium but that was quickly sh!t-canned as a munchkin is just not that menacing.
Do it for Van Gogh...
Personally I like Wild at Heart as much as anything David Lynch has done.

 

It ain't ignorance causes so much trouble; it's folks knowing so much that ain't so

Very good takes on Lynch I would agree with it.

The guy is different, and so are his works....

His stuff can get dangerously close to tedious.
With art, weird for the sake of weird is simply ma$turbation.

However, DL does have an original/unique vision, which is fascinating from my POV.
Without question his stuff isn't for everyone, but there are a lot rewards too.

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

Lynch is one of my favourite directors. Blue Velvet, The Straight Story, Mulholland Dr, Twin Peaks (the TV show and the movie) and The Elephant Man are among my favourite.

Lynch's brilliance lies in his ability to perfectly mix the beautiful and the twisted.

There are few, if any, directors out there who would be able to put a scene so tenderly beautiful as the Mysteries of Love scene in a film along side a character like Frank Booth.

Or the In Dreams scene which is at the same time hypnotically beautiful and bizarre.

There is nothing else quite like Blue Velvet out there.

Having said that Inland Empire is self-indulgent, ugly looking, incoherent s***.

It's been quite a while since I've seen Blue Velvet so I'm looking forward to the Blu Ray.

I recently watched The Elephant Man (HD) and it was as brilliant as I remembered. Just a killer combination of incredible acting, great script, authenticity mixed with surrealism.
