Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart

I feel like the style and experimental leanings of Lynch can often overshadow how they're also like the most emotionally moving films ever made. With Fire Walk With Me and Mulholland Drive this might be more obvious but the point in Wild at Heart where Lula is crying in bed while Sailor goes off towards what is clearly a potentially life-ruining decision it hit me how human these characters really were. I started thinking about all the complex circumstances of their situation, much of them self-perpetuated but just as many out of their control. That was the point where I realized how much I related to these lunatics and wanted to see them succeed.
