How did you see both 'Blue Velvet Revisited' and 'No Frank in Lumberton'? Theatrically, I presume (at least the former)?

Nope, they are both on KG. "No Frank" I could upload for you, if you like, "Revisited" I don't have anymore.

Yeah, I saw that in a museum in Paris not too long after I had first seen 'Blue Velvet'. I said to my classmates that Isabella Rossellini was actually a great actress, but none of them cared.

Having watched the film years ago I did think for a moment while looking at those shots that at least some of them look surprisingly Fulton-esque, but nope.

Hint: It's related to the upcoming Short of the Day ("if you know the future, it is past" - Alan Watts).

They all look Clipsony, but you haven't seen any of his films "years ago", right? Perhaps Baillie. I'm knackered though, so I'll have to find out when I wake up.

It is on three official lists. So it is clearly less obscure than the film in the non-obscure "name the movie"-thread (it also has more checks). Sorry for doing things wrong.
