Wild at Heart

A young couple flees from assassins hired by the girl's mother.


Why watch this film?

David Lynch (‘Dreams of Empire’) loves to play with elements and styles of classic cinema, such as noir, 1930s monster movies, and the like. In 'Wild at Heart', the filmmaker makes a kind of reinterpretation and counterpoint to the classic 'The Wizard of Oz'. To do this, he tells the story of a couple (Cage and Laura Dern) who must flee after the woman's mother hires professional assassins to kill her husband. The journey is strange and psychedelic, surrounded by traditional elements of Lynch's cinema. Cage's performance, taken to the extreme, helps to give texture to the story that, as it is being concluded, gets closer and closer to Dorothy's plot in the Land of Oz. And who would have said: together with Dern, he formed one of the most interesting couples in Lynch's filmography.
