If you're a fan of insanely intricate film criticism, we've got a recommendation for you: "The 'Blue Velvet' Project" at Filmmaker Magazine by critic and professor Nicholas Rombes. Three times a week -- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday -- Rombes writes about a single frame from David Lynch's 1986 film "Blue Velvet." Each entry is about the image 47 seconds after the one examined in the previous blog post. The "Blue Velvet" Project will last an entire year, and concludes in August 2012. That's not putting a film under a microscope; that's like putting a film under about 150 microscopes one at a time.
