Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart ★★★

Film Club #6:


There’s a lot to unpackage. As the movie went on it was clear that Lynch made this movie for himself and as a result some things really work for and some things really don’t. I love the lead performances by Nic Cage and Laura Dern. Willed Dafoe’s in the movie for like ten minutes but he steals every scene it’s in. Although I tend to love when a movie isn’t afraid to get weird, this movie’s bizarre presentational choices didn’t feel justified to me and instead left me scratching my head. Probably my least favorite Lynch film I’ve seen, but still pretty good.
