Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart ★★★★★

Film Club #6 

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge David Lynch fan, so it’s no surprise here that I absolutely love this film. I think it’s one of Lynch’s most underrated gems. 

Would I recommend Wild at Heart in particular to someone who has never seen a Lynch film before? Hell no... this was maybe the fourth film I ever watched from him, and even years ago when I first watched this I thought this was wild and unnerving and brave and downright weird. It’s full of nightmarish imagery, punchy dialogue, demented violence and themes that aren’t for the weak at heart. But that’s why I love Lynch’s filmography - he pushes the boundaries and it always results in a beautiful, surreal glory. 

Also, Laura Dern is fucking HOT in this film, god damn.
