a little too fast evolution, David Lynch will fall down very low
because of Dune. Moreover this film will leave him some after-effects
(it will not have the final cut, and the production will go up
its film). Thus the life will be a little harder to him in the
world of the cinema.
Projects as " Ronnie Rocket " will not be born. But
Dino de Laurentiis will give him its chance. With a reduced budget
(5 million dollars) and a total artistic freedom, David Lynch
will carry out Blue velvet, a thriller which will be turned in
Wilmington in North Carolina.
Finally we find in this film the very personal ingredients of Lynch:
" an old phantasm attacked me for a long time, says it. I always
dreamed to slip to me into the room of a girl to watch for her in
secrecy all the night ". This film introduces to us Kyle Mac
Lachlan (future Dale Cooper) who interprets Jefrrey Beaumont...
This one is going to see his father who had a heart failure, and
he finds in his path an ear!
After having carried it to the police, he will meet the daughter
of the inspector, and with her, he will discover the hidden face
of Lumberton: sex, drug. Dennis Hopper incarnes here a gangster
who represents violence in a pure state, who will involve Jeffrey
in many tours.
Lynch will find in his team the head operator Fred Elmes and the
person in charge of the sound effects Alan Splet who have both
worked with him since Eraserhead. After this film, Angelo Badalamenti
will follow Lynch in all his works to create an original tape
which always tallies with films of Lynch.
