Something Wild (1986)


Every time I rewatch this it jumps up like twenty places in my favourite movies of all time. The transition of tones is utterly jaw-dropping. A film so full of character, ennui, optimism, spontaneity, sadness and sheer life. If my life looks anything like this movie when it flashes before my eyes at the end of days it will have been a life well lived. Very nearly started watching this again just as it finished. Demme truly was one of the greatest. Something Wild, I adore it. A constant in my own personal Criterion TopĀ 10.

Watched on Criterion blu-ray.
