Wild At Heart * David Lynch (1990)

Of course this wasn’t the first time that I saw this film, it’s a Lynch afterall. Of course many actors are the same as in other films of Lynch, but the main part is for noone less than Nicholas Cage. Cage plays a man good within but always getting problems. He falls in love with a girl he better shouldn’t see. His former employee had a girlfriend who is Cage’s girlfriend’s mother and when the husband/father gets killed, both his former employee and the mother think that Cage knew what happened. Anyway, “Wild At Heart” became a roadmovie with Cage dancing to heavy metal and singing Elvis. Naturally Lynch included some dark and vague scenes and his weird sense of humour comes out well too. Very nice film.
