Our Score
Director David Lynch goes over the top, over people's heads and somewhere over the psychedelic rainbow here in another ultra-violent and sleazily sexy pulp art attack. Forget the story; Lynch clearly has. Just follow convict and Elvis fan Nicolas Cage and his trailer trash girlfriend Laura Dern as they are pursued through the Deep South by her crazed mother's gumshoe lover. Stuffed with the Sultan of Strange's transfixing brand of deranged visuals, haunting weirdness and exuberant camp, it's another hip and hypnotic rollercoaster ride through the twin peaks of pretentiousness and exhilaration.

Summary

An Elvis-obsessed ex-con and his lover set off on a nightmarish journey across America pursued by a variety of bizarre and deadly characters. David Lynch's dark road movie, starring Nicolas Cage, Laura Dern, Diane Ladd, Willem Dafoe, Harry Dean Stanton and Isabella Rossellini.
