“Lurid melodrama, soap opera, exploitation.” - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“David Lynch doesn't tell stories as much as he shows hallucinations.” - Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
Recently released from prison, Sailor (Nicolas Cage) reunites with girlfriend Lula (Laura Dern) for a road trip from hell. This cult classic fever dream from Lynch is a surrealist love story dripping with sleaze.
