Scenes I Love: “Blue Velvet” – In dreams you’re mine/All the time

Expect a full review soon.  Whenever I think of David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” the scene that comes to mind is Dean Stockwell with a work light as a microphone mouthing the words to Roy Orbison’s “In Dreams”.  It is truly one of the most haunting scenes in film history as Stockwell floats around the screen and Dennis Hopper lets his psychopathic rage bubble up.

Everybody relax, Frank's here. After going to film school at Columbia College Chicago, Frank decided to underachieve with his vast knowledge of film into a career in civil service. Frank had a brief stint as a film blogger, and then he met the heterosexual love of his life, Nick Clement. The two instantly bonded over their love from everything to Terence Malick to THE EXPENDABLES films. Some of Frank's favorite filmmakers are Terence Malick, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Sylvester Stallone, Oliver Stone and Spike Lee. Some of his favorite films are THE TREE OF LIFE, STAR WARS (all of them), BAD LIEUTENANT, THE THING and ALL THAT JAZZ. Frank spends his free time with his dog Roger, collecting any Star Wars collectible he can find and trying to finish his pretentious, first person narrative novel(la), LARGE MEN IN SMALL CARS..

  1. Fantastic scene! I really need to see Blue Velvet a second time (like any David Lynch movie) as I feel I didn’t get to appreciate it as much as it deserves…
