Excerpt: Crime movies don't get much better than this David Lynch carefully thought out concoction Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern play star-crossed lovers in star turning roles trying to get away from a sought out mob and one crazy ass bitch mother played by Diane Ladd who was a delight to watch.
Excerpt: Much has been made that the transfer used for this release is 10 years old. However, the transfer was made by Lynch himself so at least we what we have here is the intended look of the film. There are some tiny white specks that pop up once in a while but otherwise its a mighty fine looking image.
Summary: Likeable road movie that ticks all the Lynchian boxes. Intelligent, offbeat, violent and visually pleasing. Unfortunately, it's also disjointed, episodic and the constant Wizard Of Oz references tend to grate after a while. The supporting cast is great, although Laura Dern isn't.
Summary: This is one of the more linear and accessible David Lynch films. That isn't to say it isn't a little strange, though, as Lynch crafts a world populated by exaggerated characters and darkly comedic action scenes.
Excerpt: I am into David Lynch movies, and this one is no exception - very fun to watch. PQ is terrible at times, though - graininess in some night time scenes makes them nearly unwatchable, and the master needs a clean-up as well. Detail is ok, and colors are actually quite good.
If you can go without supplements, a solid release!

Excerpt: I love how wild and unpredictable this film is. It's not as good as Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire or Lost Highway, but what a fun treat. The PQ has a vintage, film-like transfer due to the thick layer of grain and the audio is very strong.
Excerpt: David Lynch movies are an acquired taste. You either love 'em or hate 'em. There is no way in between imo. I just love how each time he continues to amaze me. This movie just has a lot of craziness and crazy characters in it. Willem Dafoe simply has the best role in this movie.
Summary: I always think, that Lynch is overrated. But this movie is one of the best, which I saw. Cinematography like in soap-opera... but the story, however seems to be a traditional romance, is sick. Lynch's way of sickness... This movie I can call "However": 1.
Summary: Usually lynch is quite difficult. Well, in my opinion. But Wild at heart is not impossible to understand, yet it still has many "lynch-elements". Wild story about young love, violence, fear and weird thoughts.
