David Lynch's 1990 Wild at Heart is an utterly random and ugly experience with pockets of startling imagery and inspired set pieces. Based on a Barry Gifford novel, the film stars Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern as lovers on the lam whose relationship is tested and who meet some truly dangerous wackos (including an almost-simian Willem Dafoe). Lynch's thoughts seem to be everywhere, and he expects the audience to keep up with a story that seems more a collection of avant-garde whims than a coherent vision with the intuitive brilliance of his Blue Velvet. Cage gives one of his more chaotic performances, but then he was just reading Lynch's signposts. --Tom Keogh

As always, David Lynch is on top form, and Wild at Heart is yet another stunning film added to his list.

Lynch as always has managed to create and craft a unique blend of bizarre visuals, strange and akward characters, a unique and individual story line, popped them all into his cauldron, added a touch of transcendental meditation, lots of coffee, and out popped this gem. I cannot rate this film enough. If you haven't already seen it, do so.

Nicolas Cage as Sailor is absolutely fantastic, Willem Dafoe's character as Bobby Peru is disturbing but excellent, and Laura Dern (a Lynch regular) as usual is superb.

The film focuses around the weird and wonderful journey the two main protagonists Sailor (Cage), and Lulu (Dern) embark on to escape Lulu's Psycopathic mother (Diane Ladd).

The two main characters; Sailor and Lulu, are completely and passionately in love with one another. Unfortunately, Lulu's incredibly psychotic and domineering mother (Diane ladd) can't bear to see them together, and hires a notorious, and sinister hitman to track them down and kill Sailor.

Lynch, obviously highly influenced by the film The Wizard of Oz has used heavy allusions of this in Wild at Heart, and has used his unique directorial skills to offer the viewer a 'slightly' different take on the original.

As you can guess already, I'm a huge Lynch fan, and luckily, watching this film may help people to follow suit. Watch it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly as good as 20 yrs ago 16 Oct 2010
I saw this at the movies in 1990 and it made a big impact on a 20 year old. 20 years later some schenes arent that controversial as they were then but it is still a good road movie.

It's true to say that Wild At Heart is perhaps one of David Lynch's more-flawed cinematic endeavours, with many of the scenes, and indeed, the film as a whole, seeming incomplete or lacking any real purpose. One criticism of the film that tends to crop up most often is that the whole thing smacks of "weirdness for weirdness sake", with Lynch failing to tie his strange characters and their surreal situations to any kind of real narrative... which, I suppose is true. However, despite these flaws, the film is still a great deal of fun, and although the whole thing is ultimately very silly, it still has enough bizarre high-points, set-pieces, sight-gags and cameos to make the whole thing ultimately worthwhile.

I suppose the film is best described as a vicious black-comedy, though the emphasis there is on 'vicious'. Lynch also makes allusions to the 'lovers on the run' genre of crime filmmaking popular in the 60's and 70's, taking it all further into the realms of the bizarre through his own cinematic obsessions (like deformities, arson, small-town Americana, detective fiction, good versus evil, car-accidents, etc), as well as more arcane references to Elvis, voodoo, incest, and the Wizard of Oz. It's a surreal trip, best summed up by the film's repeated mantra "wild at heart, weird on top" with Lynch seemingly revelling in this carnival of grotesques, whores, thugs and criminals, all gathered together in small-town New Mexico under a haze of blood and sex. American film critic Roger Ebert mockingly referred to the film as a "lurid melodrama, soap opera, exploitation put-on, and self-satire", which to me, sums up the film's most successful attributes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wicked and Wild 31 May 2007
By Jay
It helps watching the trailer first for this Nicholas Cage film. The theme song,'Wicked Dream' is so enthralling.

This is a romantic, abstract, Lynchian Wizard of Oz. It can get heavy, apart from our lovers, everyone here is totally and abundantly cookoo, especially Lulas Mum for a start, she is the wicked witch in her head. William Dafoe's part is really haunting too, especially how he is introduced to us, the way he comes out of the dark.

It needs to be watched many times so as to understand the full essence ofthe film which can be very dark at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mildly surreal David Lynch classic 28 April 2006
Very enjoyable film that is well written, cast and acted (Willem Dafoe's performance is classic and shows Nicholas Cage's in his best role to date). Perhaps unusual by David Lynch's standards, the film is only mildy surreal with a storyline you can follow. Would recommend to anyone except parents, too weird and violent, and work colleagues who might think you're a bit odd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the director's cut, sadly 2 Nov 2010
The film is 5 stars, this BD release is sadly 3. This is the regular theatrical cut of the film, and not the director's cut, so some of the violence is trimmed back in small ways and in the case of the shotgun scene has the added optical to obliterate the gush of blood. The BD transfer is extremely good, the film looks and sounds as amazing as it did on the big screen. Definitely worth having until the DC gets the BD treatment, but hang on to your DVD DC as well until it does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra's are a superb package on this disc. 23 Aug 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nice to see a proper remastered DVD release for this Lynch classic, including lots of fab extra's!
The interviews with the cast and crew are REALLY entertaining, and Willem Dafoe in particular tells some great anecdotes about his time filming his legendary character role as the nasty Bobby Peru.
David Lynch is so damn interesting and I love hearing him interviewed.
Even Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks (the Good Witch in this movie) shares her thoughts on the filming of this movie.
I was VERY happy with all the extra's on this collector's edition and the movie itself looks wonderful in its remastered format.
Now if only Mr Lynch would give "Lost Highway" this kind of DVD collector's edition treatment.
