While David Lynch is always working on something, these days it doesn't seem to be film. Instead he's making coffee, music or painting and next year, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts will have a retrospective of that work. But for those of you waiting patiently for a new Lynch film, hopefully this will help pass the time.

Blue Velvet

While David Lynch is always working on something, these days it doesn't seem to be film. Instead he's making coffee, music or painting and next year, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts will have a retrospective of that work. But for those of you waiting patiently for a new Lynch film, hopefully this will help pass the time.

50 minutes of deleted scenes from the director's classic 1986 psycho-drama "Blue Velvet" have made their way online. Diehard fans may have already watched them on the 25th anniversary Blu-ray release from a couple of years ago, but until it's inevitably yanked, here's a chance to catch it in case you missed out. So where does all this material come from? It's the leftovers from the scenes Lynch had to snip away from his 3 1/2 to 4-hour rough cut, to the contractually obligated 2-hour version he handed in to producer Dino De Laurentiis. The scenes had long been considered lost, until they were found a few years ago in near pristine condition by the dedicated MGM tech Darren Gross, after a lengthy search. Lynch was given a chance to edit it together, and well, here we are. So what'll you see?

Mostly lots of extra character moments, and one sequence involving Dennis Hopper and a flaming nipple. But all told, it's a rare opportunity to see the stuff that filmmakers leave out when shaping their final vision. Take a look below and for more "Blue Velvet" than you can handle, head over to Cinephilia And Beyond who have the script, behind-the-scenes photos, lots of extra interviews and more.
