“Joltingly violent, wickedly funny and rivetingly erotic.” – Variety
“There’s a spontaneous, anything-can-happen feeling to it that’s the primary appeal of any road movie.” – The Dissolve
“Though Miss Dern and Mr. Cage are constantly upstaged by the rest of the movie, they triumph.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times
After serving prison time for a self-defense killing, Sailor Ripley (Nicolas Cage) reunites with girlfriend Lula Fortune (Laura Dern). Lula’s mother, Marietta (Diane Ladd), desperate to keep them apart, hires a hit man to kill Sailor. But he finds a whole new set of troubles when he and Bobby Peru (Willem Dafoe), an old buddy who’s also out to get Sailor, try to rob a store. When Sailor lands in jail yet again, the young lovers appear further than ever from the shared life they covet.
Dir. David Lynch. 125 min. 1990.
