Blue Velvet

UK, 1989 (MIFF 1990, The Media Show)

In American movies, nasty things often lurk beneath the calm surface of the American small town. With the help of David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks), Joe Dante (Gremlins) and David Thomson (Suspects), we probe behind the white picket fences - and discover that it all starts with It's A Wonderful Life.
