The first shot of the roses over the picket fence and the title track "Blue Velvet" establishes the setting (Lumberton) as a typical suburban town. The camera starts on a bright blue sky with birds chirping and flying by and then tilts down to bright red roses over a bright white fence...

In an attempt to change this, on June 29, Congress voted in favor of HConRes 67 that called for a 7 year plan to balance the Federal Budge...

C. E. I compared the opening scene to this chapter which really doesn't seem to follow Murch's theory to well. The film starts out with quickly cut scenes of a murder. These scenes are cut too quickly to fully understand what is going on. A blurred effect is also used to help create these scenes of ch...
