News & Interviews for Wild Side (All The Way)
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.
Donald Cammell's weakest film, but that being said, his visual bravado is still present in full force, complete with elliptical editing and dream-like ambiance... it's just a shame that the story being told wasn't that interesting at all... great performance by Christopher Walken, who makes every scene he's in captivating, but everyone around him is merely serviceable... how I longed for this to be a beautiful swan song to an artist's career, but alas it nothing but an interesting and intriguing failure... recommended for fans of the director and art-house lovers, but others would be better off watching one of Cammell's earlier works ("Performance", "Demon Seed", or "White of the Eye").
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.
