Blue Velvet

Blue Velvet ★★★★

RIP Dean Stockwell.

Still Covidridden, and can no longer taste or smell. Consequently, I'd not planned to have a drink. Halfway through, I suddenly had a Heineken Zero in my hand. The system works!

Seeing the opening 20 minutes again suddenly help me place The Straight Story as a Lynch movie. The rest reinforced my view that this film alone makes it a bit ooky that Isabella Rossellini was on Ross's List.

Now I'm imagining Chandler dragging Ross and Joey to see this. Chandler would have regretted going but lied about it. Ross's takeaway would have been "that nightclub singer is hot." Joey would have fallen asleep before you first see the ear.
