An erotic, violent, disturbing, blackly-humorous road movie that confirmed David Lynch’s position as the most startling and original film-maker of his generation. A twisted homage to The Wizard of Oz, this takes Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern on one of the most bizarre journeys of all time, as they escape from the clutches of her evil mother (Oscar Nominated Diane Ladd).
Featuring startling performances from an all-star cast including NICOLAS CAGE, LAURA DERN, WILLEM DAFOE, ISABELLA ROSSELLINI, HARRY DEAN STANTON, DIANE LADD and CRISPIN GLOVER.

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

David Lunch’s work is well known of course, and very well respected - He has had over 30 award nominations for his films, winning 4 Baftas.
Quite how Diane Ladd, as Marietta, was nominated for an Oscar for her role in this - as the crazy mother of Lula is beyond me? I found her persona and depiction almost laughable, and totally hammy!
Having said that, I thought Defoe as ‘Bobby Puru’ just wonderful and very much one of the highlights of the film, Cage & Dern were very good as the lovers but the story was just so stupid at times that it rather devalued what they were doing.
For me Lynch tries too hard here to fill the film with weirdoes and the bizarre! - Blue Velvet gets it just right; this is simply over the top, but still good old fashioned entertainment. However, at the end you’ll say to yourself, “What the hell was that all about?”
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.Read more ›
So if you've purchased this version, break out a beer, big up the sound, and chill out to Lynch's crazy road movie masterclass. The wonderful performances of Nicolas Cage and the beautiful Laura Dern are of course legendary, but revisiting the movie reminds me how Willem Dafoe stole the show with his deeply disturbing pitch perfect psycho Bobby Peru. Dafoe's performance in this role must rate as one of the truly great moments of menace in the history of American cinema.
