    Wild at Heart

    ★★½

    The thing that makes David Lynch's movies work despite how disturbing, abstract, or outright boring they can sometimes be is that he's usually a master at making you empathize with his characters.

It went a little over the top in a couple of moments, but besides that the comedy was a lot sharper and endearing than I had expected, and I loved it for it.
    Bean Bag Boys for life.
