Wild at Heart (1990)

After Elvis wannabe Sailor Ripley breaks parole for manslaughter, he and his blonde bombshell girlfriend Lula Fortune leave town and take a road trip to New Orleans. Lula’s mother Marietta, protective of her daughter hires a hitman and private detective to hunt down the young lovers. On the way they witness a young woman dying after a car accident, and Lula believes this is a bad omen. When in New Orleans they meet a bunch of weird characters, including the evil and psychotic Bobby Peru, who convinces Sailor to help him carry out a bank robbery. Typically bizarre David Lynch film, with references to The Wizard of Oz. But despite the strangeness of it, the love story between Sailor and Lula is the main focus. Starring Nicolas Cage, Laura Dern, Willem Dafoe, Crispin Glover, Diane Ladd, Isabella Rossellini, Harry Dean Stanton, Sherilyn Fenn 9/10
