Blue Velvet - Masterpiece Films

A fun homage to PBS's Masterpiece Theater, YouTuber Consequence of Sounds takes that old show's format to showcase classic films instead of books. Here she dissects some of the elements of David Lynch's 80's masterpiece to showcase why it still enthralls audiences as much (if not more) today than it ever did before.

Leah Pickett hosts and narrates this brief program and she helps make her analysis informative and entertaining to listen to, which is always a welcome sight in these kinds of videos. I really have no idea if my original blog, 35 Years of David Lynch, helped inspire Leah and crew in their analysis. But a part of me hopes so, because this video essay represents exactly the kind re-examination of David Lynch's work that I wanted to encourage all along.
