promised john and my dad that i’d revisit it. i watched it once when i was 16 – it was the only film my dad explicitly said had an age limit. i watched day of the dead when i was like 7 years old so not being able to watch blue velvet until i was 16 was kind of a big deal in my mind. funny how a kid’s mind works. anyway, i thought the film was crap back then. and for the first 30 minutes or so i thought it was crap again. eventually it sorta grew on me and i accepted it as somewhat interesting. overall i’d much rather watch a real douglas sirk film instead of a douglas sirk film on acid, but that’s just me.
