Laura Dern at her worst, Nicholas Cage at his worst, HARRY DEAN STANTON AT HIS WORST! Wild At Heart is a Lynch fun ride film, it's enjoyable and fun at some point, i admit that, but the whole story and the whole conflict is really stupid and pointless. Oh, and the ending? love me tender bullshit!
I must say this is about the worst Lynch movie i've seen so far. Nevertheless, I think it has many interpretations that still pop out of the regular movie. While not a particular fan of this movie's photography, I must say the matchstick shots have an impact. The confrontation of a man with his own maturity and desire fits well too. Too bad it's not portrayed at its best.
Two points on rewatching: One is that while there are a wealth of beautifully filmed shots and individual scenes that are quite effective, but due to the episodic nature of the movie, the film feels kind of unbalanced, especially when you know how minor some supporting characters really are. Second, Diane Ladd's character in this is so unsympathetic that she almost derails the film. Easy to enjoy, hard to recommend.
