Praise Blue Velvet all you want, but you’ll never hear me say it’s a great movie. I think it’s a good movie. Enter Black Heaven thirty years later, a little french movie that takes Lynch and goes Matrix with him. The result is intriguing to be sure in a kind of experimental way, well shot and scored, but in the end the movie is unable to surpass Lynch for two reasons. It feels too mannered and refined and it comes with a rushed finale.
Looking back, I’ll say we have a curious and mystique little indie film, but it’s not quite there.
