“I guess I started smoking when I was about… four. My momma was already dead then from lung cancer.”
David Lynch‘s iconic WILD AT HEART features one of our favourite onscreen cineamtic couples, notably our man Nicolas Cage (in fine form; sporting an iconic, snakeskin jacket that represents a symbol of individuality, and a belief in personal freedom) and Laura Dern as young lovers Sailor and Lula, forced to go on the run from the variety of weirdos that Lula’s mom has hired to kill Sailor. Also starring Diane Ladd (Dern’s mother!), Willem Dafoe, Crispin Glover, Harry Dean Stanton, Sherilyn Fenn and Isabella Rossellini.
“Joltingly violent, wickedly funny and rivetingly erotic.” (Variety)
“Lynch’s kinky fairy tale is a triumph of startling images and comic invention.” (Rolling Stone)
