Wild Side (All The Way) (1995)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
Alex (Anne Heche) is a corporate banker who refuses to prostitute herself for the company but has house payments to make so she becomes a call girl on her own terms. After hooking with bad-boy criminal Bruno Buckingham (Christopher Walken), she is then approached and raped by FBI-agent Tony who is posing as Bruno's driver. Alex is caught in a squeeze where she has to keep seeing Bruno, working with the FBI. Her first job as Bruno's new girl is to set up an account for Bruno's wife, Virginia (Joan Chen), at her bank. Suddenly Alex discovers she's a lesbian as she falls for Virginia and the two have a sexual encounter. Together, Alex and Virginia attempt to send up Bruno and leave the country together. The story for this soft-core crime film is as loose as the characters, most of it feeling like it was improvised. The entire plot seems to take back seat to the sexuality and works as little more. ~ Sean D. MacLaggan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Wild Side (All The Way)
Awkwardly executed erotic thriller, that thrives on its kinkiness and absurdity.
Wild Side has a definite point to make with its sex scenes: the characters rarely sleep with each other without a definite narratological or psychological purpose.
Audience Reviews for Wild Side (All The Way)
Plot? What? Are you serious? This has a very good looking Anne Heche and Joan Chen making out, Christopher Walken into full batshit crazy mode and full of ham and cheese. The serious parts are mostly boring, but aside from that your pants will be happy.
I only have the 96 minute, unrated Studio version of this film. I would love to get a chance to see the 112 restored cut, the one based off the original edit and the director's notes. But until the day they release the 112 minute cut in the U.S., I'm stuck with the 96 minute studio version, which I still enjoy despite that its not fully what Donald Cammell had in mind when he and China Kong wrote it, and when he shot it. But still, one of my favorites.
