Something Wild
USA, 1986, 114 min., Color
The uneventful life of a the businessman Charles Driggs (Jeff Daniels) suddenly changes when he meets the wild and sexy Lulu (Melanie Griffith). But, the fun quickly takes a dangerous turn when her ex-convict husband (Ray Liotta) shows up. An unbridled Jonathan Demme effortlessly weaves a slapstick tone with unflinching drama. Part romance, part road movie, part blood-spattered drama, “it’s a schizophrenic movie,” Mr. Demme has said, “a screwball comedy that turns into a film noir, as life itself does.”
