Blue Velvet and Its Legacy
7 March 2012 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Mysteries of Love (2002)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Isabella Rossellini, Kyle MacLachlan, Dennis Hopper, Laura Dern and producer Fred Caruso are all interviewed for this 68-minute documentary that takes a look at David Lynch's BLUE VELVET. The documentary is broken into eight different parts that each take a look at a different part of the production. This includes Lynch, in an archival interview from 1987, talking about how he came up with the ideas for the movie and how it was really bits and pieces that he just threw together. The casting is another major section as each of the actors talk about how they got their roles and it was usually just by Lynch enjoying them as it appears none of them really had to audition. From here we get to see how the sets were designed, what type of look the director wanted for the picture and we even have Hopper talking about his infamous scenes with the gas. Rossellini even tells some wonderful stories about some of her problems with the nudity and how she eventually got over it. Other stories told include a funny one about dust bunnies and we hear about the rights issues for the Blue Velvet song. Finally, the cast talk about the film's original release and how it has held up over time. Fans of the cult film are really going to enjoy this look back at its making as everyone involved tells some pretty interesting stories. What I enjoyed most is how bizarre the film tells the story because it's just as strange as the film itself. Lynch is painted as a mad genius and you really get that feeling by hearing these stories and wondering about some of the items that didn't make it into the movie. It's too bad Lynch refused to be interviewed for the documentary but the archival ones still allow us to get some interesting thoughts from him. For the most part this is just a talking heads documentary but there are a few clips from behind the scenes stuff and we even get to see the now famous review from Siskel and Ebert.
