"What you faggots want?" A few minutes later... "I want to apologize to you gentlemen for referring to you as homosexuals. I also want to thank you fellas; you taught me a valuable lesson in life. LUUUULAAAAA!". Crazy and surreal with a tense performance from Willem Dafoe, but also mystic. Nicolas Cage singing "Love Me Tender" to Laura Dern was beautiful.

David Lynch's bonkers road movie has enough oddball characters and gruesome imagery to spare. But the thin plot is only an excuse for Lynch to revel in its strangeness and it becomes grating. Still, Laura Dern looks good topless and the villains are intimidating.

Likeable road movie that ticks all the Lynchian boxes. Intelligent, offbeat, violent and visually pleasing. Unfortunately, it's also disjointed, episodic and the constant Wizard Of Oz references tend to grate after a while. The supporting cast is great, although Laura Dern isn't.
