Surveillance

Not from the twisted mind of David Lynch but rather his twisted genetic code comes Surveillance that is directed by his daughter Jennifer Lynch. Starring Julia Ormond and Bill Pullman as the lead roles, Surveillance revolves around two FBI agents who are attempting to capture a serial killer.

The twist to the story is that three of his “would be” victims each have a different story to tell and it’s up to these agents to uncover the truth. Apart from the two leads, the movie has some interesting performances by Kent Harper, Pell James, Charlie Newmark and Michael Ironside.

Although the story is a rather stock standard affair, Jennifer Lynch has almost successfully followed in her father’s footsteps that have strong undertones of Blue Velvet.

From the very first scene of a couple being attacked by intruders wearing masks, you immediately know that you are in for a rollercoaster ride and interesting enough, Twin Peaks comes to mind with these two FBI agents who appear to be intruding on the residents of this small town.

With a few twists and turns thrown in for good measure, Surveillance contains black comedy and enough Lynch weirdness to allow Jennifer to “almost” keep up with her father.

The unfortunate aspect of Surveillance is that at times, the story seems a little forced and contrived, however if you’re after a nail biter movie, than there’s no reason not to watch this.

With decent video and audio quality, Surveillance also features a few extras to keep you entertained once you have watched and perhaps changed your soiled clothes from this freaky film.
