Here’s a Siskel & Ebert discussion I vividly remember... particularly Mr. Ebert’s argument that Isabella Rossellini was treated “cruelly” by director David Lynch.
I saw “Blue Velvet” in 1986, and I haven’t seen it since. I don’t want to see it again. I suppose that means I agree with Roger Ebert, though Gene Siskel defends the film ably.
I must acknowledge, after seeing Dennis Hopper in this clip, that Hopper did deliver one of the great villainous performances in modern movies.
