8mm behind-the-scenes home movie Making 'Dune' by Sean Young

"Dune, the motion picture was made in Mexico City, Mexico during the spring of 1983. Drafted by director David Lynch, Sean Young arrived on the set of Dune with her Super 8 camera in tow to shoot this documentary. Fresh off of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, Young joined the cast of Lynch's big–budget adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune, one of the most ambitious science fiction tales in all of pop culture. Produced by Dino De Laurentiis, Dune cost about $45 million to make and earned only about half of it back. But you'd never know Dune would become such a notorious film by watching the smiles on everyone involved."

Blue Velvet: the dark underside of America's collective fantasies

"Blue Velvet begins with the lily–white small town of America's collective fantasies and shows us its dark underside: drugs, violence, sex, and particularly sexual perversion. Our hero, Jeffrey, hiding in the dark, peers through the slats of Dorothy Vallens' closet at Dorothy getting undressed and Frank's strange sadomasochistic sex with her. Jeffrey stands for all of us American filmgoers peering (voyeuristically!) at Evil in traditional American films. Lynch clues us as to how we should read his film when he shows us a cluster of ants under the Beaumonts' pretty lawn. This is Tennyson's nature red in tooth and claw–the underside of cutesy Lumberton with its free enterprise propensity for cutting down trees."

(Norman N. Holland)
