Midnight at Nitehawk Cinema [Program & Tix]

WILD AT HEART
Lynch | 1990 | US | 125m
Midnight at Nitehawk
Wild at Heart takes its protagonists’ twisted, perverse subconscious as its reality: a world of circus freak hitmen, trailer trash Wicked Witches, and, well, Crispin Glover. It constructs a bizarre nightmare landscape, not only through its notoriously violent imagery, but also through Lynch’s typically meticulous sound design, an aural collage of crackling fire, ’50’s hipster rock ’n’ roll, and Witch cackling. Like all of Lynch’s work, it combines these elements in pursuit of a fleeting glimpse of the twisted paths and dark interiors of the subconscious.”
