Released in 1986, Blue Velvet was considered a return to form for David Lynch following his widely dismissed adaptation of Dune. It combined his surrealistic and horrifying imagery with scenes of idyllic suburban life and humor, making for an unforgettable viewing experience. The critical reaction was divided at the time of its release with Roger Ebert being particularly vocal about his dislike. Now it's seen as a modern masterpiece and one of the great American films of all time.
Shawn and his wife Sarah sit down for Sarah's first-ever viewing of the film. Along the way, they discuss Shawn's obsession with David Lynch, the film's stunning performances, its controversial subject matter and how it fits in with the rest of his filmography.
