Member Picks showcases the movies that inspired the Moxie’s biggest supporters.

Every month, a member picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen. February’s pick was made by moxie members Bill and Susan Prince.

“Blue Velvet is a film that makes you laugh, cry, and become outraged seemingly all at that same time,” said Bill Prince. “Upon its release, it was hailed as both a masterpiece and absolute trash and are those not ultimately the best kinds of movies to see?”

Free for members.

Synopsis: Set in a small American town, Blue Velvet is a dark, sensuous mystery involving the intertwining lives of four very different individuals. The film’s painful realism reminds us that we are not immune to the disturbing events which transpire in Blue Velvet’s sleepy community. There is a darker side of life waiting for us all.

"Three decades after its initial release, David Lynch's Blue Velvet has lost none of its power to derange, terrify, and exhilarate."
- Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Lynch and his film will surely be reviled, but as an experiment in expanding cinema's dramatic and technical vocabulary, Blue Velvet demands respect."
- Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Blue Velvet is a throughly unpredictable, frequently disturbing and sometimes jaw-droppingly funny film. There isn't anything else quite like it, and it's pretty wonderful."
- Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
"The seamless blending of beauty and horror is remarkable, the terror very real, and the sheer wealth of imagination virtually unequalled in recent cinema."
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Blue Velvet is David Lynch in peak form, and represents (to date) his most accomplished motion picture. It is a work of fascinating scope and power that rivals any of the most subversive films to reach the screens during the '80s."
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews
