Blue Velvet vs. American Beauty



A very hard decision...

This comparison just goes to show that "Blue Velvet" could have won Best Picture if it were less violent and more conventional. That said... there could have been no "American Beauty" without Lynch, who laid bare the American subconscious for all to see in an audacious film that still shocks today. The same just can't be said for "AB", which is about as controversial as the Lifetime Channel.

American Beauty, no quesiton.

Blue Velvet is a top masterpiece that everyone can relate to.

Weird pairing but Blue Velvet affected me much more
