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 the make cuts to earn an “R.”
