Wild at Heart by David Lynch (USA, 1990, 125 min.). 35mm.
David Lynch’s scorching romance follows young lovers Sailor (Nicholas Cage) and Lula (Laura Dern) as they flee across country to escape a host of psychotic killers hired by Lula’s jealous mother (played by Dern’s real-life mother, Diane Ladd). The film is crisscrossed with allusions to two icons of American popular culture: Elvis Presley and The Wizard of Oz.
