The discovery of a severed human ear found in a field leads a young man on an investigation related to a beautiful, mysterious nightclub singer and a group of psychopathic criminals who have kidnapped her child.
30 years after the shooting of 'Blue Velvet', the classic film of David Lynch, the German filmmaker Peter Braatz revisits his original Super-8 material and numerous photographies, filmed 30 years ago on the set in Wilmington, USA.
I love Blue Velvet. It's one of the greatest films of the 1980s. I watch it endlessly, trying to make sense of the great Lynchian moments. I got an advance copy of the new DVD with this documentary on it and am unfortunately still perplexed. There are current but not especially informative interviews with most of the cast but David Lynch only shows up in archival footage. What a pity. Sad to say that this doesn't shed much light on solving the mystery of David Lynch's best film and will probably serve as the last word on the film. Rather lackluster.
