Screening in 35mm, from an X-rated print, as part of the series The Complete David Lynch!

David Lynch throws Southern Gothic melodrama, The Wizard of Oz, surreal-kinky violence, and Elvis into a brewing cauldron for this nightmarish soap opera. Based on the pulp novel by author Barry Gifford, WILD AT HEART follows outlaw lovers Sailor (Nic Cage) and Lula (Laura Dern) as they go on the run through a menacing Deep South populated by the usual stable of unsettling Lynchian weirdos. Funny, scary and brilliantly cinematic, Lynch received the Palme d’Or at Cannes amid “the most violent chorus of boos and hisses to be heard in a decade.”
