    Wild at Heart

    Wild At Heart (1990) features probably my favorite young rebellious on-screen couple, Sailor and Lula, two innocents who deal with all the shit that happens to them the only ways they know how. WAH is a film about true love, passion, crime, dancing, individuality, freedom, good and bad witches, temptation, menacing baddies, weird families, and much more, all filtered through the strange and wonderful mind of David Lynch.

    Edwige Fenech is as charming and as impossibly gorgeous as ever, Luigi Pistilli is perfectly despicable, and Anita Strindberg plays unhinged like nobody's business. This is my favorite of Sergio Martino's multiple gialli and his direction is impressive. Bruno Nicolai's at times baroque score…

    It Comes At Night (2017) is a tense, atmospheric and ambiguous film with an excellent cast and an appropriately minimalist score. This simple yet effective low budget distopian slowburner holds up exceptionally well on a repeat viewing.
