WILD AT HEART
1990, Park Circus/MGM, 124 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

Blending elements of THE WIZARD OF OZ and CINDERELLA (!) with a catalog of film noir subplots, director David Lynch leads us on an intoxicating, bizarrely perverse Southwestern odyssey with romantic ex-con and Elvis fan Sailor (Nicolas Cage) and his teen girlfriend Lulu (Laura Dern) as they flee psycho matriarch Diane Ladd (Dern’s real-life mom). With an unforgettable Willem Dafoe as demonic slimeball Bobby Peru. Also starring Harry Dean Stanton and Isabella Rossellini. This film was initially in danger of getting an X rating, until Lynch was forced to make cuts to earn an R.


BLUE VELVET
1986, Park Circus/MGM, 120 min, USA, Dir: David Lynch

Squeaky-clean suburbanite Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) gets a crash course in the dark side of life when he stumbles upon a severed ear in a field near his home. Before his amateur investigation is over, he encounters kidnapping, murder, sexual assault, Isabella Rossellini as a tormented torch singer and Dennis Hopper as one of the scariest villains in film history. Director David Lynch combines Hitchcockian suspense, surrealist imagery and a Hardy Boys plot to create a one-of-a-kind Grimm's fairy tale for adults. Laura Dern and Dean Stockwell costar.


JURASSIC PARK
1993, Universal, 127 min, USA, Dir: Steven Spielberg

During a preview tour of Jurassic Park, a theme park on an isolated island with cloned dinosaurs on display, a disastrous power breakdown causes the park’s vital electric fences to turn off - and the flesh-hungry dinosaurs to roam free. Skeptical paleontologists Alan Grant and Ellie Satler (Sam Neill and Laura Dern) and the grandchildren of the park owner must fend for themselves against these ancient predators in director Steven Spielberg’s bloody-fun, wildly pulse-pounding adventure. With Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough.
