The Movie: Wild at Heart (1990)
What Is It?: David Lynch makes his version of a rom-com by dropping Nick Cage as an outlaw Elvis impersonator and Laura Dern as his beloved Peanut into a 1965 Thunderbird and onto a nightmare road where they encounter private dicks, black angels, car-wreck victims, Tweety Bird-voiced bar flies, and Dern’s real-life mom Diane Ladd as the wickedest witch of a mom in North Carolina.
Why Today?: Today is National Peanut Day.
