A look back at the AFI's 1998 and 2007 "100 Years, 100 Movies" Top 100 Lists…..and a lot more!
Blue Velvet (1986)
Rated very R for Frank-level cursing.
One of the more messed-up movies ever made has us talking for more than an hour in the 34th episode of the Next 100 Project. Dennis Hopper is a monumentally crazy bad guy in David Lynch’s defining film. It’s also technically gorgeous and, even after 30 years, ahead of its time. Suck up your amyl nitrate, tune up the piano and sing yourself some Bluuuuuue Velvet. Oh, and enjoy it with some Sparkplug Coffee!
