To say that Marietta Fortune (Diane Ladd) does not like her daughter Lula’s boyfriend would be an understatement. Marietta hired a man to attack Sailor (Nicolas Cage), after which Sailor did jail time for killing the assailant. Upon his release, Sailor is reunited with Lula (Laura Dern), and the young lovebirds soon hit the road to get as far away as possible from Lula’s overbearing mother. But Marietta’s not through hiring professionals to track them down. David Lynch’s first film after Blue Velvet is as surreal as ever, yet more dynamic, poppy, and laugh out loud funny than perhaps anything else, awash with bleached hair, leopard print, snakeskin, cool cars and roadhouse bars, not to mention Isabella Rossellini, Harry Dean Stanton, Willem Dafoe, and one of the greatest cameos Crispin Glover ever turned in – which is really saying something!
