Arriving in the summer of 1990 after a blisteringly divisive premiere at Cannes (where it won the Palme d’Or), David Lynch’s Wild at Heart was a big mythic mind-fuck that swapped the relative subtlety of Blue Velvet and the forthcoming Twin Peaks for a blood-soaked cartoon spoofing love, The Wizard of Oz, and human decency. Making it work as well as it does are the harmoniously bonkers leads, Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern, who infuse their cartoons with intoxicating passion.
