Glad this is out on Blu-ray, I've been wanting to see it again.

Does Dennis Hopper say a complete sentence anywhere in the movie without using the F word at least once?

Sublime.

Unlike Ebert, I give this (review) a thumbs up!

Great read indeed, Josh.

Will I like this if I found Mullholland Drive a bit silly? Or are they nothing alike?

Much more coherrent than most of Lynches other films and a true classic. Dennis Hopper is truly frightening as a believable maniac. You should enjoy this one.

Excellent review, Josh!

I love, love, love 'Blue Velvet.' One of my all-time favorites from the 80s, and one of Lynch's best work next to 'Mulholland Drive.'

Blue Velvet is in my personal top 20. Mulholland Drive has some interesting ideas and moments, but has never quite done it for me.
