    The Godfather: Part II


    This film proved everyone wrong who thought a sequel can't be as good as the original.

    Blue Velvet might be the perfect film to introduce someone to David Lynch's Cinema. As it is a film that perfectly blends nightmarish nature of his later work with a more conventional setting of his films like 'The Elephant Man' and 'The Straight Story'.

    Here he…
