Wild At Heart


(out of 5)

Lynch psychedelia at its most unimportant. After getting out of jail on probation,  picks up his lady love () and drives her across the country on his motorcycle. Her slightly psychotic mother (a fantastic ) hates Cage for his past and is entirely sure that her daughter is in great danger, hiring a killer to trail the couple everywhere they go and bump Cage off.  The cast is marvelous, and some of the Wizard Of Oz references are charming, but the story is mostly just stupid excuses for Lynch to make a weird movie.
