However, the film Blue Velvet is a story that takes place in a small town in America about a young man who believes that he is called to be an investigator. One day while coming back from checking his father from the hospital he picked up an ear he then takes it to the police station. He then started his own investigation and that is where the story uncovers the secrets hidden in the small town.
Looking at the Canonisation of this film starting with beauty the film was all in all overwhelming it transformed reality into this beautiful world the use of lighting and the colors that are used gave away it’s beauty. Looking at the films strangeness the way that the film starts as a viewer you can pick up it’s strangeness because you are shown that there is something going on in this small town and I think the filmmaker did a good job because he made it clear from the beginning. the film was unpredictable and almost felt unfamiliar because of the protagonist and the way that he behaves. The unity of form and subject matter I would say that there is unity in this film form follows friction this was made through dramatic acting and plot.
Watching this film for me was nice because it was unpredictable the plot changed from the main character finding someones ear to him finding himself in the hands of the person who is very mentally sick. I just loved how events turned out in the film and how the actors played their roles. I would rate this film 6 out of 10 and I would recommend people that enjoy to be surprised while watching a film because this is a film that surprises the viewer.
