Watch: 'The Mysteries Of Love,' A 70-Minute Documentary About The Making Of David Lynch's 'Blue Velvet'

We’re still a couple of years away from any new work directed by David Lynchthe new “Twin Peaks” episodes won’t hit Showtime until 2016but in the meantime, why not take a peak behind the scenes of “Blue Velvet,” a film that in many ways serves as a nice jumping-off point for the cult TV show.

The 70-minute-long, 2002 documentary “The Mysteries Of Love” dives deep into the 1986 film, with interviews with key members of the creative team, including Lynch himself, along with Kyle MacLachlanIsabella RosselliniLaura Dern, and Dennis Hopper. It has some great insight into how the film came to be, both in terms of the financing and in the creative origins, as well as some great Lynch anecdotes from the actors, almost all revolving around Bob’s Big Boy in Burbank. The doc also talks about the use of nudity, the first reaction from producers and test audiences, and much more. This is one Lynch fans have to watch.

“Blue Velvet” is available on DVD and Blu-Ray now. Watch the doc below.
