I'VE JUST seen Wild at Heart again, and maybe it's rated so low on Mia's list because the characters are so repulsive.

I've said it before and seem to be in the extreme minority when I say that WAH is in my top 3. It's just my kind of Lynch movie to the fullest but the ending kind of brings it down a bit, IMO.

My VHS version sucks and I want my WAH DVD dammit!  :evil:

i love wild at heart, i hate how people bash it. maybe it does get a bit slow towards the end and people don't like that. i know i don't really like that. but i still think it's a really good movie and utilized some really inventive filmmaking. visually, i think it's his strongest film.

as for you freakerdude, i hear the WAH dvd is coming out soon, but, if you can't wait any longer, go and import the Japanese dvd. that will play on any american dvd player. i don't think it's worth it though. from what i hear it should be out in region 1 sometime this year.

no, it just seemed like lynch was directing a bad soap opera.  i thought it was terrible.
