silos (7 out of 10 ) Obviously, such a movie on a screen would prove to be better because the rich texture seems to be absent here, even though the screenplay is written very well.
louis (9 out of 10 ) Am I imagining things or does that script have a hell of a lot of scenes at the beginning that were never filmed?
Sam (10 out of 10 ) Louis, the original cut of the movie, as I understand, was 4 hours long, but by contract David Lynch had to deliver a film less than two hours in length. The final film is one frame short of two hours. When Lynch was asked about the footage, he claimed that the studio had been unable to locate it; he thinks it has been lost forever. On the Blue Velvet Special Edition disk though, there's an attempt to reconstruct part of the film with still images taken during production. God, this film is so good. Ingenious!
Aaron (10 out of 10 ) This has got to be one of my all time favourites. Like all Lynch films, this one is outstanding. Every time I watch it I seem to pick up on something I missed previously. Very well written script as well. Top marks from me.
Scott Fisher (10 out of 10 ) I've never read a screenplay before. I'm sixty two years old and I want to learn how to screenwrite. I chose this movie out of the blue, if you will, and can not wait to see the film. I'm sure glad of my choice for my first experience. What a gifted writer he is. Talk about word pictures! I see the difference of writing for live stage or picture film. Well, I'm totally blown away. Thank you.
Bob Rampart (7 out of 10 ) There are substancial differences between this script and the actual film.
