Wild at Heart

Not David Lynch's best film, but by no means his worst, this twisted 1990 road-trip romance made a star out of Chris Isaak, whose haunting "Wicked Game" appears on the soundtrack. Co-stars Laura Dern and Nicolas Cage march grimly but effectively through the thicket of Wizard of Oz references, but it's more fun just to count the number of loopy supporting turns from Diane Ladd, Crispin Glover, Willem Dafoe, Isabella Rossellini, Sherilyn Fenn (she of the loose brain matter), Harry Dean Stanton, and an uncredited Val Kilmer (as Elvis).
