And I Still Can See David Lynch Through My TearsiTunes ♦ Stitcher ♦ Google Play Player FM ♦ TuneIn

Lady P is joined by a pair of NYC film critics: Caroline Golum and Matt Prigge, to discuss the 69th (nice!) film on the Sight and Sound International Critics Poll: David Lynch’s 1986 release, Blue Velvet. They talk about Lynch’s manichean universe and his use of pastiche to emphasize his themes. Due respect is paid to the universally beloved artists that Lynch references in his work including Bobby Vinton, Roy Orbison, and Laura Dern.

The Blue Velvet discussion then segues into Lynch’s recent television output, the Twin Peaks reboot,  which leads to a discussion on auteurist television, and why certain directions can naturally transition between mediums. They then offer a wishlist of directors that they’d like to see run their own a show.

Finally, they close things out with a couple of final notes of positivity.

Here’s Caroline’s: this movie and this book
