Blue Velvet: A Bloomsbury Movie Guide

Bloomsbury Publishing USA, Jun 19, 1999 - Performing Arts - 186 pages
0 Reviews

Blue Velvet is perhaps avid Lynch's best film to date, and certainly his most well known. Beneath its tranquil, beautifully filmed, small-town ambience, lies violence and depravity on a hideous scale, with Dennis Hopper, as Frank, at its core. This book covers every aspect of the movie: how it was made, the screenplay, the casting, the director, its themes. Passionate, witty, and provocative, the book goes far beyond the usual A-Z.
