Blue Velvet on Blu with "lost" scenes - Page 3

post #61 of 70
I really need to watch those extras. Dammit.

And I watched the extras and the film. On a small screen, mind you, but it looked terrific.

Most of the scenes cut out of the film were interesting, but Lynch cut them for a reason and he was right to do so.

Yeah and that reason was that he was contracted to deliver a 2 hour movie. So that's what we have, a movie that's exactly two hours.

None of the extra scenes were essential to me, but I did like Jeffrey calling Dorothy and Frank picks up the phone. Neither speaks and we have intense stressful silence for a long period. Then Jeffrey whispers "hello?" and Frank shouts "Talk to me, motherf*****!"

And he could have changed it. But he didn't. It's his cut and it's awesome.

That scene actually is terrific.

My wife had never viewed this film before. Dennis Hopper scared the crap out of her.

Lynch overshoots all of his movies. It's his process to experiment on set and then pare down the film in editing to the parts that are actually essential to the story. Wild at Heart had something like three hours of extra footage.

I think the Blue Velvet deleted scenes are fascinating. While none of them were necessary to the story, they give us a peek into what's going on in the world of the movie just off screen. Aunt Barbara is a great character!

I also found the revelation that Jeffrey was forced to drop out of college because his parents couldn't afford it anymore due to his father's illness adds a lot of layers to his character and motivations.

And that's Megan Mullally as Jeffrey's girlfriend! Craziness!

Karen Walker is the one woman who could've given Frank a run for his freak money--and bested him.

Will you be reviewing this? If so, you might investigate an authoring issue with the "Mysteries of Love" 70-minute documentary. As mentioned above, it is flagged 16:9 but should be 4:3. Googling shows other people have noticed it, but I don't see it mentioned on any review site.

I'm in the process of reviewing it, and yes the documentary is mis-flagged as 16:9.

The movie looks pretty good, but it has a couple of weird visual anomalies near the beginning. I have no idea what's going on in the sky during the scene where Jeffrey finds the ear.
