The instant I read your question, I immediately thought of Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet.  The profanity was constant, violent, and oddly horrible in its intensity.  I mention it because it truly disturbed me, while most profanity in films seems merely banal, or typical.  Hopper with that creepy nitrous mask saying, "Baby wants to f*ck!"  Ewww!  And juxtaposed with Isabella's timelessly gorgeous face, it was beyond strange.  (She reminds me of the bust of Nefertiti in Berlin, sort of a beauty beyond beauty.)  I rather think David out-Lynched himself with that one.


You've got a point there.  On the other hand, to me the most memorable profanity in BLUE VELVET was "Heineken!  F--- that sh--!  Pabst Blue Ribbon!", a line that my friends and I repeated endlessly throughout college.  This comic relief line, which comes at a point of almost unbearable tension when Jeffery is helpless completely within Frank's control, really sticks in the mind.

"The best parts are watching Sly go through the full range of emotions: deadpan, deadpan with raised eyebrow, deadpan with quivering lip. There's also a great sequence where Sly drives his VW Beetle down the interstate for about 20 minutes, staring dramatically through the windshield.."-Joe Bob on A MAN CALLED RAMBO

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
