A poor transfer and no subtitles - Blue Velvet review by WS

Spoiler Alert
06/10/2015

I can understand why even fans of David Lynch's work rarely seem to rate it as on of their favourites. There's a good amount of weirdness, and it's quite clever in the way that it takes staples of popular culture such as film noir, and '70s cop shows and melds them into something strange and unsettling. But some of the acting was wooden (or maybe this was intentional?) and it doesn't quite transport you into a believable alternative reality (or surreality) like, say Mulholland Drive or Lost Highway.

I would happily grant it 3 or even 4 stars were it not for the poor transfer. I noticed throughout how fuzzy the picture was. At first I thought it might be just my eyes! but when it got to the end credits they were too blurry to read. So the fault must lie in the process of transferring the film to digital.
