Wild at Heart
Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern play a pair of lovers on the run in David Lynch's surrealist road movie Wild At Heart. Cage's Sailor Ripley is a violent ex-convict with an Elvis Presley fixation who falls in love with Dern's Lula Pace Fortune, the daughter of a rich, but mentally unstable, Southern belle named Marietta (Diane Ladd, Dern's real-life mother). Just after Sailor is released from prison, where he was jailed for brutally killing one of Marietta's thugs, he and Lula take off on a wild cross-country trip, pursued by his parole officer, her mother, criminals, bounty hunters, and detectives. Along the way, Sailor and Lula have a lot of sex, share their pasts, share their respective obsessions for Elvis and The Wizard of Oz, and meet a lot of bizarre characters, including a seedy ex-marine (Willem Dafoe) who persuades Sailor to participate in a bank robbery. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

    Dark Oddball Film.


    Released in 1990, Nicholas Cage and Laura Dern shine as razor edge lovers Sailor and Lula who go cross-country to California while being dogged by hired guns through Lula's envious mother and on-road oddballs in this Western-Noir. Some parts come across well while others feel too unbelivable to be taken seriously at all. A movie of random moments, the actors are great, but the movie is so extreme in leaving reality you end up losing interest in it until the credits roll.

    Definitely a Cult Classic

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I absolutely LOVE this movie. It's a David Lynch movie, so expect it to be a bit off the wall. The movie is a fun, dark comedy. But it won't be for everyone. If you went to Rocky Horror Picture Show and were disappointed because the plot and drama did not live up to your refined cultural tastes, you will probably not enjoy this. But if you like gritty, noir-ish stuff, give this film a shot.
