Product Description

Product Description

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.

Special Features:

- Dumbland (all eight animated episodes) (35.00)
- Two short films:
The Grandmother – 1970 (33.36)
Lumiere and Company - 1995 (00.58)

From Amazon.co.uk

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.

‘Blue Velvet’ will always be one of my favourite films, but this pales in comparison. Yes, its great entertainment, if you like lots of surrealism, fantasy, sex and utterly bizarre characters, but this film goes too far IMHO to make it a classy or truly creditable film. If you just want a wingding or a blast for a couple of hours, to take you away from the reality of the shop floor or office then this’ll do nicely! It’ll take you so far away you’ll need your passport to get yourself back!
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?”

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.

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.

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.

If you enjoy vintage David Lynch films, look no further! There are definite similarities to "Twin Peaks" in it's off-centre storytelling, although "W.A.H" goes further into the realms of kinkiness and surrealism with the enthusiastic help of Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern, star-crossed lovers usually separated by frequent jail terms for Cage's jack-the-lad character "Sailor". A companion piece to this would be "Natural Born Killers", although seeing them back-to-back would rate 11 out of 10 on the weird-ometer!

The Region 1 full length restored Special Edition is the definitive DVD version for aficionados of David Lynch's extraordinary movie Wild at Heart. Overseen by the director himself, the lovingly restored sound and picture quality literally blows all other versions out of the water (including the Blu-Ray). Hugely generous with terrific extras, this is the disc to permanently add to one's DVD library of evergreen classics. At the time of posting this review, Amazon.com's price of nearly $65, seems astonishing when compared to Amazon.uk's lowest used price of exactly the same Region 1 issue for only £3.50.

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.
