The Great Scenes # 38: Blue Velvet (1986)

Directed by David Lynch

...and I'm back from my Singapore trip! It was fun. I won't bore you with the details but one detail I will share is that I did pick up a Blu-ray while I was there. It was a title unavailable on Blu-ray over here. It's one of David Lynch's sickest, darkest masterpieces,  Blue Velvet. In this scene, we are first introduced to the main antagonist of the film, Frank Booth, played by the late great Dennis Hopper and he instantly becomes one of cinema's most unforgettable, darkest and sickest on-screen villains of all time. CAUTION: This scene is NOT work-safe or for kids. Viewer discretion is advised.

GAH, y'know...I still have yet to see Blue Velvet or Lost Highway all the way through! Hell, YOU were the one who pointed out to me how good Blue Velvet was the last time you had it on your blog...

Gah. Neither are on Netflix right now. D: Time to start writing in all caps to their corporate office...
